INTERCULTURAL STUDIES FOR BUSINESS

The MA program in Intercultural Studies for Business opens up new international horizons for students. The course has been approved unconditionally for 6 years by the national agency for accreditation A3Es.

With a highly specialized faculty, the MA offers innovative courses such as: Chinese (Mandarin) and Arabic Languages and Cultures for Business, Culture and Development, Intercultural Economic Relations, Entrepreneurship in Culture, Intercultural Communication Technologies, as well as English, French, Spanish, and German Cultures for Business.

The master's course is fully taught in English, thus allowing greater collaboration and international mobility. Students can opt for a double diploma, in combination either with the Masters in Languages and Intercultural Management at the Université d'Artois, France, or with the Masters in Intercultural Management of ISIT – Institut de Management et de Communication Interculturels, in Paris. The master's course has a specific ERASMUS mobility protocol with the University of Applied Sciences, RheinAhrCampus, Germany, and five specific protocols for PhDs at the Universities of Vigo, Santiago de Compostela and Salamanca, in Spain.

The course offers internships with Incubitz Business Consulting & Entrepreneurship, the Portuguese High Commissioner for Migrations, the National Association of Women Entrepreneurs, Vida Económica Publishing Group, EDUCOACH Education and Social Innovation, Sinerconsult, the London Eligent Club, and other European partners.

The course is likely to attract graduates from all the schools of P.PORTO, as well as graduates and professionals in the fields of heritage, arts, communication, social sciences, humanities, economics, cultural planning, languages, literatures, marketing, management, international trade, local and central administration, public and international relations, tourism, hotel management, publishing, project management, cultural mediation, NGOs, and education, among others.

Graduates are able to use interdisciplinary techniques and knowledge to facilitate the implementation of international projects, identify and respond to the needs of different cultural environments, improve communication between different business cultures and effectively deal with intercultural situations, supporting integration and growth. They are also qualified to develop sustainable and culturally aware business projects, and to develop scientific research with a solid practical, technical and theoretical basis.

Although English is the working language of the course, the linguistic component is NOT under assessment (except in Arabic/Chinese Language and Culture). French, Spanish and German will be used in the respective course units, with a level of proficiency to be negotiated with the group.
