5 MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN 5 IF YOU THINK IT OVER, YOU LL REALISE THAT MARKETS ONLY WANT THE BEST. Hi! It is with great honour and satisfaction that I address myself to you in my role as the Dean of ISEG, a school which, above all, has pride in its students, in those who have had the audacity to make a difference, to think and to make decisions that make the world a better place. For this reason, every year ISEG prepares not only a curriculum which conforms with the highest of international standards so that you can grow academically, but also programmes that help you mature as a person and develop your skills of teamwork, leadership, communication and an awareness of social responsibility. At ISEG we provide the best university environment, in order that you can feel comfortable and focus on what is really important: constructing your future. At ISEG we believe that thinking is a faculty which will help you overcome the challenges that await you in the future. If you think it over, you ll realise that markets only want the best. João Duque Dean and Professor of Finance at ISEG
6 6 WHY ISEG? THINKING IS A FACULTY. Knowing how to think isn t for all of us. Because those who know how to think, know that the best option is to prepare our own future. Those who know how to think, don t look to the left or the right, but just move on forward. Don t believe in what s right or wrong. Believe in yourself and respect teamwork, which brings together the best of each of us and transforms the weak into the strong, problems into solutions and thus changes the world. Those who know how to think, ask for nothing less than the impossible and do all possible to turn this into a reality. Because knowing how to think is more than a quality, is more than a vocation: it is a faculty. All you have to do is choose yours well.

The main objective of the Master in Actuarial Science is to train students for the actuarial profession, in its multiple components: life, non-life, financial and pension funds. The programme offers a solid academic foundation in actuarial science, statistics and finance. The Master was conceived according to the international requirements for the actuarial profession. It is meant to cover most of the course materials indispensable for the accreditation of an actuary in the European Union, in accordance with The Actuarial Association of Europe, as well as the course materials of exams FM, C, MFE and MLC of the Society of Actuaries in North America.

Since 1911, ISEG has accompanied the evolution of markets, the economy, and scientific knowledge in the field of Finance.

16 16 MASTERS IN MONETARY AND FINANCIAL ECONOMICS MONETARY AND FINANCIAL ECONOMICS SCIENTIFIC AND PEDAGOGICAL COMMITTEE António Afonso (programme director) Miguel St. Aubyn Maria Rosa Borges SCIENTIFIC ADVISOR Prof. Victor Constâncio (programme director from 1992 to 2010) The MSc in Monetary and Financial Economics (MEMF) is intended to complement and to deepen first cycle education provided by a degree in Economics, Finance, Quantitative Methods, or Management. The MEMF is an international-level programme that follows the best European practices in the area. As such, the selection criteria of applicants are demanding and this exigency level is kept along the course. Thus, the MEMF is not compatible with a weak background and with a low-effort profile, as we expect students to be prepared to spend a minimum of 3200 effort hours in 2 years. The effort required from MEMF students is strongly valued in the labour market. The aims of the MSc are: (i) providing advanced knowledge in the monetary and financial fields, based upon the most relevant results achieved by the scientific community; (ii) initiating its students in scientific research, by practicing the appropriate techniques and methodologies; and (iii) preparing the senior staff in monetary and financial institutions linked to financing the economy and the monetary policy issues. This MSc gives direct access to the doctoral programme in Economics at ISEG. Employers especially recognize to MEMF graduates a strong background in econometrics and quantitative methods, competence in macroeconomics and monetary economics, and a large capacity to face new challenges. All the compulsory and elective option course units with origin in this MSc use English as their work language. Course units originated in other MSc will use the work language chosen for that particular programme. The Training Positions MEMF Bank of Portugal programme provides the opportunity to work as a trainee in the Economic Research Bank of Portugal to the best students in the MSc. Its main goal is to produce a dissertation supervised by a doctor in the department. DETAILS Schedule: All the course units with origin in this MSc are taught after 6 p.m. Starting Date: september, 22 nd 2014 Places Available: 25 Fees: 5000

19 LIVING AT ISEG 19 ALUMNI Alumni Económicas is the Association of ex-students from ISEG, and is the largest network of ex- students of all the Economics and Management schools in Portugal. Alumni Económicas currently has more than 1,000 associate members and organises the following activities during the year: The annual award for the most distinguished ex-student Conferences and seminars solely for ex-students Alumni Day Anniversary reunions for degrees Alumni Económicas is more than just body that organises events for ex-students, it is also an organisation that is deeply concerned about, and dedicated to, the present ISEG student population. For this reason it launched the following two programmes over the last couple of years: In the Mentoring programme of Alumni Económicas final year students are given continual support by a mentor - an ex-student with at least 5 years of professional experience during their process of entering the job market, in order that they can prepare themselves better for their future and widen their learning process, whilst acquiring and perfecting skills. This programme aims to support students enrolled in the 1st Cycle of studies with proven financial difficulties, through grants for paying fees, food and transport. Started in January of 2012, the ALUMNI ECONÓMICAS SOLIDÁRIO PROGRAMME has enabled grant support for 24 students, 6 of whom have already completed their undergraduate degree. The programme thus tries to guarantee that everyone has the right to an opportunity to learn and strives to ensure that no talent at ISEG is lost!
20 20 LIVING AT ISEG ACADEMIC STAFF Our academic staff has the highest percentage of PhD doctors in the country, most of whom earned their PhD at prestigious internationally acclaimed universities.

21 CAREERS 21 MENTORING In the Mentoring programme of Alumni Económicas, final year students are given continual support by a mentor - an ex-student with at least 5 years of professional experience during their process of entering the job market, in order that they can prepare themselves better for their future and widen their learning process, whilst acquiring and perfecting skills. MENTOR For me, as a professional, it is important to get to know the expectations and ideas of these young people, as they are the future professionals/leaders of our companies/organisations. The Mentoring programme is a means of maintaining contact with younger generations. The contribution that I tried to give to the Mentees was sharing my professional experiences, including not only the successful ones, but also the errors that affect those who take actions and make decisions. I tried to transmit what happens in the real world of business and within professional relationships, as a way of helping the Mentee opt for the best decisions during their professional career. ELISABETE ALVES PIRES Associate Partner Function Risk Leader, Deloitte MENTEE Looking back, over these last two years of Mentoring, I ve become a more balanced professional, better prepared to make decisions and to face problems, and, principally, with the security that I always have a friendly hand to whom I can fall back on in time of need. An experienced voice guides me. My two mentors from the previous years are now two good friends, whom I know I can always rely on. Mentoring isn t a stationary process, not having a mentor at the end of the year doesn t mean that it ceases to exist. The human bonds remain. Friendship remains after Mentoring and also a strong feeling of loyalty and mutual help between both the mentor and the mentee. CÉLIA SARAIVA Graduate in Management
