"As a current student of the Master in Finance at FEP, I found the programme quite challenging and intensive but still refreshingly innovative and rewarding. Coming from a small country in the Caribbean, I knew that if I wanted to get further in my career I would have to further my studies internationally. FEP was my first choice because it is one of the top schools in Portugal and also because my ancestors hailed from Portugal. To this day the degree at FEP has not disappointed but has greatly exceeded my expectations. The hospitality of the people, the professionalism of the staff and the programme content shows me that the decision to study at FEP was one of the best I have ever made.”Phil Rose, Antigua and Barbuda


"The Master in Finance of the University of Porto School of Economics and Management allowed me to develop solid foundations for a future career in the financial sector. The programme provided me not only the required technical knowledge, but also a wide range of opportunities to apply it, such as the FEP Finance Club. Through the latter, I was also able to improve my soft skills, as well as to network with professionals, spread through the most relevant financial institutions in the World.”David Novo, MiF Graduate
