Diretor: José Manuel de Castro Oliveira — Coordinating Professor


The School of Business Sciences (ESCE) is an organic unit that is part of ISPGAYA. ESCE is managed by a Board of Directors, which includes the head and coordinators of the courses that comprise it.

The existence of the ESCE aims to provide ISPGAYA with a capacity for excellence in the area of business sciences in three areas: (i) higher education, (ii) applied research and (iii) technology transfer and the provision of high-level services.

The training offer of ESCE includes Higher Professional Technical Courses (CTeSP), Degrees, Postgraduates and, soon, Masters. Short-term face-to-face specialised courses, e-learning and b-learning are also part of the training provided.

In terms of research, teachers seek to participate in projects of a local to international scope, promoting the development of academic technical-scientific knowledge. This research results in publications and/or the incorporation of results in civil and business society to contribute to its progress.

The ISPGAYA School of Business Sciences intends for students to enjoy a connection to the business reality, provided by analysis of case studies, business simulations, seminars, study visits, internships, participation in consultancy actions.

The School of Advanced Studies is an ISPGAYA structure that brings together and develops all scientific, theoretical and practical, technically specialised, non-degree courses, with different durations. In this school, postgraduate and specialisation courses are developed that, due to their interdisciplinary nature, are dependent on the acknowledgment of the Scientific Technical Council, enabling flexibility in schedules and content applied to active professionals and students who wish to deepen their knowledge.
