The School of Economics and Management of the University of Porto (FEP) stands out in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) world ranking with its Master’s in Marketing (81-90th), its Master’s in Management (96th), its Master’s in Data Analytics (101+th) and its Master’s in Finance (111-120th).

The ranking is based on five main criteria: employability, positions held by alumni, diversity of students and teaching staff, thought leadership (academic reputation, scientific productivity, among others), value for money (cost of the master’s degree, salary of graduates, among others).

“FEP remains attentive to ongoing transformations and constantly adjusts its training offer to the needs of the market. The fact that we have achieved an outstanding position in the QS rankings in recent years is testimony to our commitment to excellence. We are determined to continue moulding and preparing the leading economists and managers of tomorrow,” says FEP’s Dean Óscar Afonso.
