Professor and Academic Director of the Masters in Economics at Católica-Lisbon
"The CATÓLICA-LISBON Economics Club plays a fundamental role connecting economics faculty and students. They promote numerous events and initiatives where all the community comes together to discuss current economics issues. In particular, they have regular opinion articles, faculty profiles, debates, and conferences. They are always willing to collaborate with new initiatives and they are a true pleasure to work with."

"The most remarkable aspect of the «CATÓLICA-LISBON Economics Club» is its heroicity. Just having a club is a daring prospect nowadays, in a time where immediate and profitable activities dominate everything. Being together just to reflect, analyze, talk and debate reality is a great achievement. This is even more amazing if the topic is Economics, where ideology and interest usually trump most discussions. Having an Economics Club, even in an university, is thus a great endeavor, and all its members should be vividly congratulated from keeping alive the so valuable and neglected art of thinking."
Professor at Católica-Lisbon
"Over the years, and more so in recent times, the CATÓLICA-LISBON Economics Club has been responsible for a remarkable set of initiatives highlighting important themes in Economics, Public Policy and in the developments of the European and Portuguese economies. These initiatives have made the club a valuable "social citizen" and an excellent way for motivated students to participate in spirited and informed discussions of current affairs. I sincerely hope that the Club continues these initiatives and keeps on establishing itself as a relevant forum for the academic community. Last, behind any Club or group there are always individuals that make a difference. We are all indebted to them: their efforts deserve recognition and appreciation."

"I accompanied the very birth of the Catolica Lisbon Economics Club. Incentivized by the Faculty, colleagues and the Career Development Office, three students of MSc in Economics, who were new at Catolica, made that happen in 2012. Since then, there has been high enthusiasm among students, who soon started to organize several activities as, for instance, the edition of a quarterly newsletter, the annual Christmas Dinner with a small conference on a relevant economic topic, a competition between groups in favour and against austerity measures, the development of a project with a national newspaper of great reputation. Nowadays, the club has been renovated, in order to increase its visibility and projection, and it is managed by a team more dynamic than ever! Since the last year they already launched the Weekly Outlook on relevant economic events, the opinion column ‘The Economic Choice’ and the monthly Professor’s Profile. They have also been organizing several events or conferences as ‘The Portuguese Government Budget, ‘Challenges for the European Union’, or the events on ‘Economics Career’, and on ‘European Central Bank with us’. The Catolica Lisbon Economics Club promotes, among students, critical thinking about current events, helps them to become proactive, and to organize activities that are of interest for everybody. No doubt, we are really proud of Catolica students’ achievements. Many Congratulations!"
