BRIEF HISTORY EU THE University of Évora It was the second university to be established in Portugal. After the founding of the University of Coimbra in 1537, it has been felt the need for another university to serve the South. Évora, ecclesiastical metropolis and temporary residence of the Court, emerged immediately as the most suitable city. Although the original idea of ​​the creation of the second University Kingdom, have belonged to John III, was given by Cardinal Henry its embodiment. Interested in educational issues, she began by founding the College of the Holy Spirit, entrusting him to the then newly founded Society of Jesus. Even the works of the building stemmed and has asked Cardinal of Rome transformation of the College in full University. With the approval of Pope Paul IV, expressed in the bull Cum nobis April 1559, the new university was created, with the right to teach all subjects except medicine, civil law and litigation of the Canon Law. The solemn inauguration took place on November 1 of that year. Even today, this day marks the anniversary of the University, with the ceremony of solemn opening of the academic year. The main subjects taught were philosophy, Moral, Scripture, Speculative Theology, Rhetoric, Grammar and Humanities, which fully enter this university in the traditional frame against reformist European Catholic institutions of higher education, most of which, incidentally, controlled by the Jesuits . In the reign of Dom Pedro II, was to be introduced the teaching of Mathematics, covering subjects as diverse as geography, physics, or Military Architecture. The prestige of the University of Évora during the two centuries of its existence first phase confused with the prestige and the scientific value of its teachers. To it they were linked relevant names in Portuguese and Spanish culture, which is important to emphasize, first and foremost, Luis de Molina, theologian and moralist of creativity and European renown. In Évora, PhD was another luminary of the Iberian culture of that time, the Jesuit Francisco Suárez, then a professor at the University of Coimbra. Here taught for a while Pedro da Fonseca, considered the most important philosopher Portuguese sixteenth century, celebrated the effort of neo-scholastic renovation of Aristotelian thought. Despite the attempts of modernization and openness to new scientific spirit that characterize the eighteenth-century university, it must be acknowledged, however, that the example of his elder sister of Coimbra, his efforts did not translate into actual opening of minds to the needs of new times. Despite the high individual value of many teachers, the education system as a whole, proved misfit and outdated. Évora participated thus the global trend of turning back to Transpirenaica Europe that characterized the majority of elites and Iberian cultural institutions of the Old Regime. When the political and cultural climate of the mid-eighteenth century began to reveal hostile to the Jesuits, no wonder that the University of Évora has been easily become a target of the reform and centralist policy of Pombal. On February 8, 1759 - two hundred years after the foundation - the University was surrounded by cavalry troops, as a result of the decree of expulsion and banishment of the Jesuits. After a long time in prison under arms, the masters were eventually taken to Lisbon, where many were imprisoned in the notorious Fort Junqueira. Others were summarily deported to the Papal States. From the second half of the nineteenth century, settled in the noble building Henrique's the Lyceum of Évora, to which the Queen Dona Maria II granted the prerogative of the use of "cloak and cassock", in keeping with university tradition of the city and the building . In 1973, by decree of the then Minister of Education, José Veiga Simão, he created the University Institute of Evora which was to be abolished in 1979, to make way for the new University of Évora.

ISCTE Business School – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa

Portugal Lisbon USA Orlando October 2017

Message from the Dean Welcome to the ISCTE Business School. IBS is a pioneer School in the teaching of management and business sciences, and the first where this was an autonomous area as opposed to a subject taught within the field of economics. The links to the corporate world are a distinctive feature of our School. Since the outset, IBS has relied on the support of invited faculty from the business world whose collaboration has provided valuable input for our curricula.… [+] It is therefore not surprising that, regardless of the economic environment, successive generations of students have enjoyed employability rates close to 100%. Even more importantly, companies recognise the high quality of the training given to IBS students and this confidence is boosted by the volume and excellence of the research produced by our faculty members and researchers. Internationalisation is the second distinguishing feature of our School. Not only does IBS teach courses in partnerships with universities from Asia, Africa and South America but, within the Portuguese university framework, IBS has also pioneered the setting-up of a support office for Erasmus students. This model, which works in conjunction with universities around the world, has attracted so many foreign students that we have been unable to attain full reciprocity despite the growing number of IBS students who benefit from a training experience abroad. The ability to work in an international setting is clearly demonstrated by the number of Alumni working abroad, many of whom hold leadership positions in multinational companies. Innovation and entrepreneurship are the third distinctive feature of our School. Pedagogical innovation led to the updating of syllabuses as well as the introduction of new teaching methods; these include the development of case studies and software support for management and distance learning instruments. It is not by chance that many reference texts in the various management fields have been written by IBS faculty. Lastly, special mention must be made of the close relationship that IBS faculty and staff develop with our students and the concern for their well-being as this is a decisive factor for the high academic performance of our students. The intellectual rigour in the classroom, the promotion of team work and the exposure to real case studies allow IBS to create value for our students, and guarantee they make positive contribution to the development of the national and global community. José Paulo Esperança Dean ISCTE Business School ISCTE Business School Facilities ISCTE Business School of ISCTE-IUL provides its students with a great environment to learn as well as opportunities to relax. In addition to the auditoriums and classrooms where the students take their classes, there are many private and group study rooms where study can be conducted. The campus also houses five café/bars, two restaurants and many spaces to relax in. Wi-Fi internet is available, to IBS students, throughout the campus. The IBS library provided by ISCTE-IUL, offers a service to all students of the University – with books in the fields of Business Studies, Social Sciences and Technological Sciences.

Instituto Superior de Contabilidade e Administração do Porto

Diploma Postgraduate Diploma Portugal Porto October 2017

ISCAP History The ISCAP with the name we know it today - the Institute of Accounting and Administration of Porto, stems from the Decree-Law No. 327/76, of 6 May, although its historical roots are much more distant. Indeed, it was in 1886 that the Industrial and Commercial Institute of Porto was founded (Decree of 30 December 1886), the then Minister Emidio Navarro that lays the theoretical foundations of the organization of industrial and commercial education in… [+] our country. In 1891, the technical education reforms of John Franco remained unchanged industrial and commercial sections of this Institute, not turning them into independent schools. The basic courses of trade were removed and the upper reaches is reduced to three years and divided into two degrees. The Industrial and Commercial Institute of Porto see, in 1896, being recognized its Colleges, equivalent to those of other schools: the former Superior of Commerce degree (created by Decree of 30 December 1886) and the Higher Course taught in Industrial Institutes and Commercial. The Industrial and Commercial Institute of Porto went through a troubled path, the lack of definitive guidance, until 1918, the date of publication of Decree No. 5029, of December 1, which separated its commercial part, deploying it in a Commercial Institute Port and a Higher Institute of Trade Port. This date gives the first time the separation of Commercial Institutes in relation to the Industrial Institutes, a situation that continued until 1924. This segmentation is however temporary, as quickly merge these new areas of knowledge and only in 1933 it opts for a final segmentation. The then dubbed the Commercial Institute of Porto is known at the time for holding the highest level of market studies of the northern capital and also for being an average technical educational establishment for the ambience of higher education in various aspects of their academic life. The reform operated by Decree-Law No. 38031, of 4 November 1950, in no way alters the characteristics of this educational establishment. On the contrary, the 1974 political climate comes operate profound changes in the life of the Institute, because at the time, grow in importance the markedly technical courses. In this new context, the country's progress demanded the good performance of senior staff, which at the time became scarce. Thus, the ISCAP, is recognized as one of the schools that, over the centuries, formed generations of professionals and is inserted in the higher education institutions. This event enables graduates by Commercial Institutes receive the designation of graduates, a degree that "is very qualified for admission to training for teacher of the 6th group of professional technical education". This legislation is a precursor of what will later integrate commercial institutes in higher education network - Decree-Law No. 327/76 of 6 May. Thus is born the current designation of Supreme Accounting and Administration Institutes, with the status of "higher education, with legal personality and administrative and educational autonomy," empowered to confer "the degrees of bachelor, graduate and doctorate." In the academic year 1975/76, the Institute of Accounting and Administration of Porto passes the minister, under Decree-Law No. 313/75, the Bachelor courses of Accounting and Administration and Languages ​​and Secretariat. These courses were subsequently regulated by Decree No. 918/83 of 7 October and sofrearam successive adjustments according to the evolution of economic and accounting sciences and the requirements of the labor market. The Institute lives, however, a turbulent period after the date 1976, due to the existing uncertainty in the country. Institutes, empowered to confer the degrees of Bachelor, Degree and Doctorate, they should be integrated in University Education, but later legal provisions sought their environment in Polytechnic. This vagueness context only ended with the identification of schools / higher institutes that resulted from the conversion or evolution of previous schools and the integration of the Institute of Accounting and Administration of Porto at the Polytechnic Institute of Porto in 1988, by Decree-Law No o 70/88 of 3 March. This new legal framework from the fact that the institutes aim for higher education of qualified technicians in the fields of Accounting and Administration and promote, in a geographical context, the exchange between education and economic and social structures. They were also found similarities between the objectives of the Polytechnic and the Institutes of Accounting and Administration, which has strengthened this new framework. Decree-Law No. 443/85 of 24 October, establishes the organic structure of the Higher Institutes of Accounting and Administration also states that its teaching staff pass to be governed by Decree-Law No. 185/81, of July 1st, who created the career Polytechnic. However, they were also created the Bachelor courses and Specialized Higher Studies, degrees that of the Education Act expressly qualifies as own the Polytechnic. In 1983 comes the Customs Bachelor's degree (Ordinance no. 918/83 of October 07), this suffering also amended (Ordinance no. 238/86 of 22 May). From the 1993/94 academic year, adopting the designation of Trade of Higher Studies, succeeding this to the Customs Degree. The Marketing Bachelor Course is opened in the academic year 1996/97 to allow "fill a gap, since its objective study seeks to eliminate an aggravated lack the technical needs higher in the services sector due to the competitiveness of enterprises, primarily as a result of the integration of Portugal in the European Union ". Ordinance No. 751/86, of 17 December, also created the courses of Specialized Higher Studies (EESC's) - Audit, Financial Control, Secretariat for Management and Administration and Technical Customs, which also conferred the degree of Bachelor from which form a coherent whole with a previous Bachelor course. This translated to, in practical terms, to grant a "license equivalent to Bachelor for all academic and professional purposes." In 1991, it created the Committee on Accounting and Administration followed by Specialized Translation, the latter in 1995. At the end of the academic year 1997/98, the ISCAP placed in the labor market enabled students with the Committee "s Auditing, Financial Management, Accounting and Business Administration, Management Advisor, International Trade (International Management branches and Customs Administration) and Specialized translation. Because of the carried out redesign, the ISCAP passes to teach, since 1998, the BA Accounting and Administration (branches Accounting and Administration, Financial Management and Audit), International Business, Languages ​​and Secretariat (branch Secretariat Management and Translation specialized) and Marketing. In the academic year 2001/2002 also would be given the branch of Public Administration. Now new facilities, officially opened in 1996, receives ISCAP the end of this decade the Master of Accounting and Administration, organized by the University of Minho, and in partnership with the Polytechnic Institute of Porto. Although opened in 1996, the move to the new building takes place a year earlier in November. In the academic year 2003/2004 the Translation Branch Specialized would be called Translation and Interpretation Specialized, change approved by Order No. 602/2003 of 21 July. In 2004/2005 is created the course of Corporate Communication Degree also in two phases in the 1st attributed cycle, likewise, the Bachelor's degree (6 semesters) and the 2nd, the degree of Bachelor (2 semesters) approved by Order No. 161/2006 of 20 February.
