PhD Programs

Welcome to ISCTE-IUL and to our Ph.D. Program!


The main goal of BRU-IUL is to promote research at the highest national and international standards in business and economics, providing a research-rich environment to achieve excellence.


BRU-IUL offers 3 PhD Programs in Economics, Finance and Management.

Students who take the PhD in Management can choose one of the following specializations:

I. Accounting,

II. Human Resources and Organizational Behavior,

III. Marketing,

IV. Operations Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management,

V. Quantitative Methods Applied to Management, 

VI. Strategy and Entrepreneurship.

Additionally, in association with Universidade Europeia, BRU-IUL runs a PhD Programme in Tourism Management.


In the past five academic years (2013/2014-2017/2018), our PhD Programmes have increasingly attracted more and more international students. It is our belief that our cultural diversity is very important for pursuing excellence and for being innovative in research.


To complete a PhD is a challenge and requires hard work but is also a journey that you should enjoy.


Remember that the BRU-IUL Direction and all the staff are here to help you.


As Director of the Business Research Unit (UNIDE-IUL), I welcome you and wish you a very successful journey.
