“The work developed by the 5 teams of The Lisbon MBA astonished us by its quality, motivation and ability to find innovative solutions in unknown territories. Many of the proposals that were presented to us will definitely be applied, but, regardless, these 2 days were really worthwhile for the opportunity to critically observe our intervention, find new approaches and gather feedback. It was an exercise of humility and development from our part and it was an exercise of creativity for The Lisbon MBA students. These experiences are crucial to any organization to test its ability to act and cope with change” PAULA GUIMARÃES Director FUNDAÇÃO MONTEPIO about the Case Competition
