“One of the singularities of the Porto Business School PBS, the fact that it is a school created by and for companies, endows the school with a set of essential features to put into practice a new paradigm: moving from an answer-based model to a question-based model and developing a learning scenario that allows looking at the world through new “lenses” and stimulating curious minds. Here, we don’t teach recipes. Instead of providing the answers, we teach how to ask questions. Find out why.”
Three times considered Best European Destination, Porto is a vibrant and eclectic city, which is as historical as it is contemporary. The future and entrepreneurship are on the agenda here.
“People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.”
