The programme runs over 2 academic years and it is adjusted to local context to ensure students can balance their time between the programme and their academic curriculum.

The programme is structured to improve the students’ ability to take initiatives and develop an entrepreneurial spirit. Students will be required to manage projects and teams. They will have access to leadership modules (i.e. awareness of their strengths and weaknesses, build trust, create meaning) and will be trained by professional coaches.
ShARE students acquire top corporate skills through training, projects with start-up and real life projects. Students will be trained by former consultants from top consulting firms (ie McKinsey, BCG, etc.). In particular, they will be trained in the methods of "problem solving", "effective communication", "analytics", "project management".
Openness to the world
The program is completely taught in English and students are grouped into international teams. Students from University of Porto will work with Indian, American and European students who also follow the ShARE program.
Do well do good
Students collaborate on solving major societal issues such as poverty, inequalities, climate change and work on NGO projects.
Pedagogy is complementary to an academic curriculum. ShARE's pedagogy is based on 3 axes: learning by doing, emulation learning and learning by teaching.
Learning by doing
Students spend more than 60% of their time on real projects so they can sharpen their skills through practice.
Students are grouped into teams. Groups learn to work together and from each other.
Learning by teaching
2nd year students become teachers of the first year students. That’s the best way to ensure concept and skills have been fully acquired.
