9 Robert Stenmark Catolica Lisbon School of Business & Economics Lisbon, Portugal, Autumn 2011 – Spring 2012 MSc in Business and Economics, minor in Finance “I applied to the double degree program to challenge myself and to gain personal as well as professional development – exactly what I got. I was one of the first students to attend the double degree program at Católica Lisbon, a highly ranked business school in Europe and considered the best in Portugal. The university has a very practical approach to teaching, and group work has an important role in all courses. However, it is not all work and no fun. As the university has almost 50% international students at the master’s level, I socialized with people from all over the world and gained many new friends. Moreover, other important ways to experience Portugal includes the beautiful beaches, the amazing surfing opportunities, the energetic night life and the great opportunities to travel. So I ask you, what could be more exciting than going a whole year abroad and experiencing life from a new perspective, breaking personal boundaries and creating unforgettable memories? Seize this opportunity and apply for the double degree – double the action, double the fun – I promise that it is a decision you will never regret!”
