Vanessa Mundim Alumnus in Accounting

ISEG is a very renowned university, with great professors and an amazing location in Lisbon. At my undergraduate degree I was very interested in Accounting, especially in the areas of Taxation and Audit. When I look into the master’s program, I really enjoy that its at international level. Also it’s possible to do a internship, and combine with others courses, which can give me the access to the CCC exam, so this master will help achieve my professional goals.
