The Department of Management and Economics (DGE) was created in 1997 with the approval of the Statutes of the School of Technology and Management (ESTG), having its origins in the Commercial Management and Marketing course that has existed at ESTG since the 1989/1990 academic year (the beginning of its operation). The management of the department is led by the Department Coordinator, who, in articulation with the other governing structures, defines how the department’s training offer will be adapted to the surrounding environment and to the legislation in force at each moment in time, and is also responsible for coordinating the human and material resources that are the DGE’s responsibility. Over the years, the scope of the DGE’s intervention has broadened, trying to improve the response to the dynamic training needs.
