DD University of Porto ENG
About the studies
In 2016 Kozminski University signed a double-degree agreement with the University of Porto. A group of KU students majoring in Corporate Finance will spend two semesters studying at KU and two – at the UP.
Studying in Portugal for a full Master's Program often coincides with huge costs. Thanks to the double degree program you will be able to attend and gain a diploma of a renowned Portuguese university by spending just a part of your studies there.
After completing all the required courses participants of the program will obtain graduate degrees of both partner universities:
- Master in Finance and Accounting of KU
- Master in Finance of the UP
Cooperation network is a very valuable asset for KU and we are proud to have the University of Porto among our partners. UP is one of the most prominent educational institutions in Portugal combining distinguished research work and advanced academic courses.
While preparing the program of the double-degree, we combine the most effective educational approaches and methods of both universities in order to find a perfect combination of academic excellence and relevance to practice. We truly believe that the double degree program will become a springboard to a successful career for the participan
This double degree is an amazing opportunity for both Kozminski and FEP students to engage in a truly international learning environment. The program enables a first-hand experience with different economic and business realities and the chance for students to get acquainted with the diversity of approaches that exist for dealing with relevant financial and accounting issues. The Faculty members of both schools is of the highest standard and typically combine academic excellence with a hands-on approach to tackle real business issues. Having taught at Kozminski a number of times I always feel a very special involvement and dedication on the part of students in class discussions and activities that makes teaching at KU always a very special and gratifying experience for me.
