Lisbon week: May 6th > 10th 2024
Chicago week: May 26th > 31st 2024

The Advanced Management Program is a joint venture between CATÓLICA-LISBON (Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics) - Universidade Católica Portuguesa, and Kellogg School of Management - Northwestern University. This program provides senior managers a unique opportunity to benefit from the experience of two schools deeply committed to Executive Education at the highest level of excellence, while being exposed to socio- economic environments, business values and economic perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic.

CATÓLICA-LISBON is the leading school in Executive Education in Portugal. It is also the fastest riser in the Financial Times ranking for Executive Education, currently sitting as the 24th best School in the world. Kellogg School of Management is one of the most reputed North American Business Schools, with an exceptional track-record in its Executive Programs. Together, the two schools designed an elite program targeted at top-level executives, with sessions in Lisbon and Chicago. This program provides a 360-degree view of the art and science of management, with emphasis on critical areas for executives at the very top of their organizations.

The previous twelve editions of the program were highly evaluated by their participants, who emphasized that the program combined exposure to new ideas and challenges, teaching excellence, and high-quality discussion in an atmosphere conducive to interaction and collaboration.

The thirteenth edition of the Program will take place in 2024: 6 - 10 May (Lisbon) and 26 - 31 May (Chicago). Participants come from the highest levels of management, including executive members of the Board. Participants are expected to contribute intensely to classroom debates and should be willing to enrich the quality of the discussion by sharing their experiences, approaches and perspectives.
