The object of this doctoral degree program is the world in a dynamic process of globalisation. The nature, intensity and speed of the interconnections between peoples, economies, cultures and the environment create opportunities but also problems and risks to our coexistence, requiring new cognitive and operational instruments. An area of study that is still emerging in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking countries is promoted, with reference to "global studies", according to the recommendations of global entities, namely UNESCO. This program targets all those who aim to develop advanced research in the area of globalisation, professionals linked to the third and public sectors, executives from companies and international organisations, as well as community leaders and consultants and those from associations and non-profit organisations that intend to implement inclusion at a global level.

O ciclo de estudos está acreditado pela Agência de Avaliação e Acreditação do Ensino Superior (A3ES).
