New in town

Welcome to the Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics 180 Degrees branch!

The Lisbon branch of 180 Degrees Consulting was created in the beginning of 2016. We want to bring top university talent to non-profit organisations, transforming good organizations into great ones via high-quality and uniquely affordable consulting services. Through the recruitment of students with different backgrounds, nationalities and study paths we aim at creating teams that are tailored for our projects.

After our first season, we were rewarded with one of the Best New Branch Award for Europe/Middle-East/Africa in 2016, recognizing the effort the executive team and the consultants put in the first round of projects being successfully completed.

For the future it is our hope to keep achieving new goals as we grow as well as broaden our horizon, always delivering high quality services to our partner organizations.
