A Few Kind Words By Our Students

Tatyana Der Agopain

Taking the Organizational Happiness MBA was an excellent investment! The relevant content in the course is very interesting, and relevant. It stands out for the practical classes followed by theory. The teachers are great and master the subjects that really got me into a state of flow during classes. The class was also amazing and the support given by ISEC and Happiness Business School to students is also a 10! I strongly recommend it.

Liliana Conde

I can only recommend this training: For the program and contents chosen; due to the extreme quality of professors, all linked to the business reality and therefore with lived experience and accumulated know-how; for the course organization and coordination, always attentive and available to the teachers under any circumstances; by the group and colleagues from the most diverse areas and with different experiences that add enormous value for the interventions that are always so pertinent.

João Sá Pinho
Vice-Presidente @ Cerzir Afetos

If there is one investment that changed my life, it was this MBA. A training grounded in a purpose, which allows the implementation of efficient practices in a diverse world of organizational contexts. The mindset of teachers at HBS is incredible, due to their experience in the market, their availability and above all the empathy and passion placed in the learning environments. I am grateful for the personal development they have given me, I am grateful for the training I have acquired to make organizations happier.

Fernanda Magri
Senior Training Manager @ Pine Cliffs

Taking the Organisational Happiness MBA was an excellent decision and I recommend it to anyone looking for a new look at people management. The content of classes is very interesting and current, the concepts we have access to are revealing and we have the support of wonderful teachers. Being part of the first class is an honor, we were students from different parts of the world who shared experiences, new ideas. I learned a lot. I couldn't be happier with this choice!

Luís Rebola
Coach, Marketeer & Entrepreneur

The HAPPINESS subject captured the world's attention when it surpassed the average enrollment of others at Harvard Business School. It also captured mine because HAPPINESS is an essential theme in coaching. And since we spend about 80,000 hours of our lives working, I decided to learn more about happiness in organizations. Being part of the 1st Organizational Happiness MBA is a source of pride and a differentiating factor that will allow me to help my coachees and also organizations to bring more happiness to the job market.

Patrícia Gameiro
Sustainable Happiness Researcher

Excellent MBA, which gives us a 360º view of happiness at work. Faculty with organizational experience, with great capacity, and concern to prepare us for the application of theory to practice. Sharing experiences was very enriching. I loved this very practical and real aspect of working on happiness, and with such a great impact on the development of workers and companies. All this in a fantastic group environment, as it could not be without people who seek and work for happiness.

Rui Ventura
Occupational Health and Safety Technician @ Jerónimo Martins

The decision to undertake this MBA was without a doubt one of the best decisions of my life. It has been a path of learning and personal enrichment and a unique experience. In addition to self-knowledge, sharing is fundamental and the work carried out is always focused on Happiness.

Carla Resende
Coach, Trainer, Guest Lecturer

Classes have a lot of content and are mostly characterized by conversations and high-interest sharing, where learning is constant. The works that we do after each topic help a lot to consolidate the lessons learned. With this I want to say that both the structure and the methodology are very well organized and the themes end up interlinking, always with an attentive and curious “wonder team” behind it, ensuring that everything works.This program is guaranteed to exceed my expectations and I am very grateful for the choice I made.

Joana Malho
Clinical Psychology Intern

Attending this MBA has been a very rewarding experience. In my case, I reviewed content that I had previously taught, reminding me that it is possible to start over. On the other hand, I found totally new content with which I identify 100%, leading again to the restructuring of beliefs allowing to absorb reality with other lenses, giving the opportunity to act with another mindset! It's been amazing. We were very lucky with the group that joined us because we felt validated and supported in these themes that are proliferating today.

Got very excited but not sure if it is the right move? Ask questions!
