Program Description

The Double Degree in Law and Management program allows obtaining in two years two 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 reference schools of Católica Porto: the Faculty of Law and the Católica Porto Business School.

This Double Degree allows law graduates to acquire a business vision and sensitivity for the organizational world, enhancing their ability to work in multidisciplinary teams, in which the knowledge, sensitivity and articulation of the two areas are required.

Therefore, the Double Degree prepares the Management graduate to master the fundamental legal frameworks and instruments and to consider the interdisciplinary nature of the challenges facing organizations, promoting an integrated view of reality.

The predominant teaching language is Portuguese, with some curricular units taught in English. The English language has an increasing importance in the business world, being, today, an essential requirement for any professional in the areas of Law and Management.

On the other hand, one of the objectives of the Double Degree program in Law and Management is to train professionals qualified to work, not only in Portugal (or in Portuguese speaking countries), but also in any other part of the world and, in this sense, the investment that the Catholic University has made in teaching English is in line with the expectations of the labor market. Thus, each student is obliged, throughout the degree, to attend (and pass) three course units taught in English, namely: English for Law and Business, Public International Law and Organization Theory and Business Policy. In addition to these, other subjects may be taught in English.

These degrees were accredited by A3ES-Agency for Evaluation and Accreditation of Higher Education on January 15th, 2016 and on September 10th, 2015, with the references ACEF / 1213/16202 and NCE / 14/02231, respectively.
