The School of Business Administration (ESCE) of the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal (IPS) is known for the quality of its degrees and the great employability of its students. With more than 3000 students, we have one of the best campus and an excellent teacher-student relationship culture as well as an intense academic life with many different cultural and sports activities.

Our School has established itself as a School of Education with high quality standards, whose training programs are adequate, continuously adjusted and with a highly qualified teaching staff, as recognized by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES) in the accreditation of curriculum submitted for evaluation.

Founded in 1994, this School is prominent in its area of study, being respected by the business community, which allows ESCE/IPS to connect with the surrounding community, especially in the Setubal region where it is located. This region with its varied landscape composed of sea and mountains, including a large protected area, is a tourist destination for Portuguese and foreigners, having thus a great diversity of structures and economic activities, increasing the challenges of competitiveness and promote the modernization of companies.

To be our student means combining academic with personal and social development, taking part in projects, attending conferences and sharing a healthy relationship with others, whilst enjoying what our city offers.
