CATÓLICA-LISBON is excited to publish its Impact Report in the year we celebrate 50 years of history, having pioneered management higher education in Portugal since 1972. This Report covers the academic years of 2019/2020, 2020/2021 and 2021/2022.
Affirming CATÓLICA-LISBON’s Leadership as a SCHOOL FOR IMPACT for its students and society at large, the school uses the universal language of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to report all its activities. Therefore, CATÓLICA-LISBON announces in a clear and objective way its contribution to the Global Agenda for Sustainable Development.
This report was developed by the Center for Responsible Business & Leadership team, in close coordination with the Dean’s Office of the School and the Rectory of Universidade Católica Portuguesa. A deep research was conducted to map all of CATÓLICA-LISBON’s initiatives, academic offers, events and activities for and with Students, Alumni, Staff and Faculty, as well as projects with the larger society and research initiatives.
CATÓLICA-LISBON’s activities are organised into 6 main areas:
Leaders of Tomorrow: initiatives aimed to impact the personal and professional development of our students.
Knowledge Dissemination: initiatives of knowledge communication and dissemination, including conferences, events, and summits.
Leaders of Today: initiatives targeting Executives and Alumni.
Inside Católica: initiatives involving staff and faculty.
Knowledge Creation: scientific research, as well as applied research and consulting projects developed by the School faculty.
Community Outreach: initiatives aiming to impact society as a key stakeholder.
Our activities were thoroughly analysed and mapped according to the SDGs and the targets they are contributing to.
For Undergraduate, Masters, and Executive Education academic offers, we analyzed the contribution of every course to SDG targets, as explained in the respective sections of the Report.
This Report includes 6 main sections. The first one “CATÓLICA-LISBON in numbers”, defines a brief profile of the School as of September 1st , 2022. Then, “CATÓLICA-LISBON identity” presents the School and its alignment with the Sustainable Development Agenda.
