TESTIMONIALS

  • "The BEST Inside Day was a very enriching experience, which allowed me to have a greater and better idea of working in a company in my area. It was a day in an environment that is close to what I will live in the future, which only shows the importance of taking advantage of such an opportunity. I recommend it and I will definitely repeat it if I have the opportunity!"

    André Xavier, Architecture - 10th Edition Participant
  • "On my Inside Day, I discovered a whole new world resulting from the area of programming in the service of agriculture. This helped me to understand that the computer engineering course is much more than just being at a desk at work, and thanks to Consulai and BEST Lisbon I opened my horizons in what will be my future. "

    Bernardo Nunes, Computer Science and Engineering - 10th Edition Participant
  • "We are two 3rd year architecture students and we had the opportunity to visit JLL Tétris. Although the experiences during this day were different, we both agreed that they opened our horizons and that they were enriching. I, Inês, was the first to spend a day in this company, starting by visiting the company's headquarters building and ending up attending a work meeting, managing to discover a little more about the world of work and the various paths that can be taken after completing the course. As for me, Mónica, I had a visit a little more practical, where I visited several works that were taking place at the time and also discovered a possibility of future work."

    Inês Marques and Mónica Leonardo, Architecture - 10th Edition Participant
  • "I joined BEST 2 years ago and was soon familiarized with BEST Inside View! I was responsible for all the logistics of the Opening Ceremony and the Networking Session, which was truly enriching. The best part about this event is that it is genuinely dedicated to students and their needs as successful future professionals. It was fantastic to contribute and have some impact on the academic life of students."

    Catarina Carinhas, BEST Lisboa - Logistics Responsible 5th Edition
  • "Being Main Organizer of BEST Inside View 2020/2021 was an amazing experience.
