Social Responsibility


Can we help?_

We want to give back to society and we do so through practices and behaviours that emphasize human and social dimensions. Thus, by social responsibility we mean internal and external voluntary practices and behaviours that promote well-being, especially when linked to our areas of intervention: training, education, skill-building, preparation for the world of work and organisational life.

Our participants are proud of taking the matter of Social Responsibility into their own hands and said that this will be "the first of many" volunteering actions they will be involved in. 

Christmas Fundraising 2022_

The Executive MBA 21/23 class joined to challenge our community to help raise funds to renovate Casa do Infantado, one of Associação CrescerSer's apartments in Lisbon, an organization that strives to support and promote children and young people's rights and help them achieve their life goals. In order to provide a safe environment for the 12 children that currently live in this apartment, we need to renovate the bathrooms, kitchen and flooring.

We are very proud to experience and support these initiatives that our students have - it is very fulfilling to see their need to give back to society, to feel that our mission is shared by our community.

Donations to Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro

We celebrated our students' achievements for the past two years in our 2021 final Graduation event. It was a night full of celebration and surprises, a night where we were able to meet again and greet each other with a smile. Before the event started, everyone took a Covid-19 test and the amount reverted in donations to Liga Portuguesa Contra o Cancro, a portuguese association fighting cancer.
We thank everyone for being there and contributing to this relevant cause, which also helped making this event safe and Covid-19 free.

Associação WU | We Help Ukraine

In the 21st century, we cannot tolerate that wars and human rights' violations continue to emerge. 
Unfortunately, our world is very far from peace. All wars matter and we want to do our parte for every human being that are thrown between these conflicts against their will and see their fundamental rights being destroyed. 
We introduce We Help Ukraine, an organization that started in Portugal on february 26th 2022. It has already gathered a lot of people and organizations to manage the platform, which will work as an "Airbnb" to find and allocate housing, medicine and job offers to the refugees seeking help. 

This platform has the potential to be an important piece in these difficult times for all of the Ucrainian people. From Portugal to the world, we count on you to help making the difference in the life of people who are just like us. 


Would you like to help us grow?

You can donate to Iscte Executive Education: we thank you for your help.
