Managing Internationally programme

Porto Business School


A joint programme between Porto Business School and Rotterdam School of Management

The “Managing Internationally” programme offers an integrated yet multidisciplinary approach to managing the challenges of doing business abroad.

The programme “Managing Int7ernationally” will most benefit senior and mid-level executives in companies preparing, launching and deepening internationalisation processes.

Hence, the programme is ideal for mid-sized and large companies in Portugal, particularly those wishing to internationalise their operations, explore new markets, and operate in a more strategic way.

The programme lasts ten weeks and includes two full immersion weeks held in Rotterdam and Porto respectively, and eight weeks of project-work. Participants are coached throughout the programme.

The programme begins with a residential immersion week at RSM in Rotterdam. We offer three intensive modules on International Strategy, Leadership and Supply Chain Management.

This residential immersion week is followed again by three weeks of project-based work with meetings with tutors. The last two weeks involve team work incorporating feedback from faculty.
Final Projects are assessed by faculty and successful completion of the programme is based on the appropriate application of tools and knowledge learned in the programme.

The programme includes, both in Rotterdam and in Porto, visits to companies and seminars with leading experts in themes related to internationalisation.

Seminars with leading experts in themes related to internationalisation such as Global Project Management, International Taxation, Metanational Knowledge Management or Cross-Cultural Awareness.

The final projects are presented at the graduation day.
