The Postgraduate Program in Statistical Systems, with a specialization in Central Bank Statistics, was developed in close collaboration with Banco de Portugal, in order to provide managers and technical staff that work in central bank statistics, either as producers, as analysts or users of statistical information, the fundamental knowledge, and skills to the development of their activity.
This program, accredited by European Statistical System (ESS) with the EMOS (European Master of Official Statistics) seal, recognized by the European Central Bank and the Irving Fisher Committee on Central Banks’ Statistics, places special emphasis on the collection and compilation of monetary, financial, foreign exchange and balance of payments statistics, including those arising directly from the participation of Banco de Portugal in the European System of Central Banks (ESCB).
The Postgraduate Program lasts 2 semesters. However, students may attend the program in part-time and complete it within a stipulated period of 2 academic years. The classes are held in the classroom or through videoconference.
