University of Stirling Management School has partnered with Porto Business School to offer students the chance to study at both institutions and graduate with two degrees.

From September 2021, students who complete the Executive Masters in International Business at Porto can transfer to the University of Stirling with 60 credits towards an MSc Business and Management or an MSc International Business, and vice versa.

This allows students to complete the two degrees in a semester less than usual, and to experience different styles of business teaching, as well as life in Scotland and in Portugal.

Lecturers can teach across both institutions, boosting teaching and research collaboration.

Associate Dean of Global Engagement and Recruitment at University of Stirling Management School, Professor Robert Webb, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for students to study in two locations and increase their future career prospects, while expanding their horizons and networks.

“In partnership with the prestigious Porto Business School, the course allows students to take various business pathways and benefit from a truly international experience, different academic approaches to the discipline and form cross-cultural business practices in both Portugal and the UK.”

Professor Kevin Grant, Dean of University of Stirling Management School, welcomed the new partnership.

Dean of University of Stirling Management School, Professor Kevin Grant, said: “Demand for higher education is growing globally and trends are shifting, generating a need to forge and strengthen international partnerships between higher education institutions.  

“Partnership with the Porto Business School, a top-ranked European university, provides a powerful vehicle for promoting civic engagement, cultivating international economic development and fostering teaching and research exchanges for staff and students, as we advance our common interests.”

If based in Stirling, it will also be possible to study for the two degrees simultaneously.
