General

Program Description

  • It empowers students to practice legal professions and to practice professions related to the management of organizations in the private and public sectors.
  • It is based on two schools that, for decades, have trained professionals with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to respond to the challenges of today's world.

The Dual Degree Program in Law and Management allows to obtain in 5 years two undergraduate degrees in different but complementary areas: a Degree in Law and a Degree in Management. It is a program that results from the partnership between two schools of reference of Catholic Porto: the Faculty of Law and the Catholic Business School Porto.

The Dual Degree allows the law graduate to acquire business vision and sensitivity to the organizational world, enhancing his ability to work in multidisciplinary teams, where knowledge, sensitivity and articulation of the two areas are required.

In turn, the Dual Degree prepares the degree in Management for the field of fundamental legal frameworks and instruments and to consider the interdisciplinary nature of the challenges facing organizations, promoting an integrated vision of reality.
