CEFAGE - Center for Advanced Studies in Management and Economics

The Center for Advanced Studies in Management and Economics (CEFAGE-UE) is a Portuguese research unit created in 2006 by a group of researchers from the Universidade de Évora. Still hosted by this university, CEFAGE has currently also branches located at three other institutions: Universidade da Beira Interior, Universidade do Algarve and Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Faculty of Science and Technology).

The main priority of CEFAGE is to promote high-quality research in Economics and Management. In 2007, in its first evaluation by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), CEFAGE achieved the highest grade: Excellent. Since 2011, CEFAGE is also in charge of the Doctoral Program in Economics of the consortium Universidade de Évora / Universidade da Beira Interior and the Doctoral Program in Management of the Universidade de Évora.

The main research areas of CEFAGE-UE are: Corporate Finance, Econometrics, Environmental Resources Economics and Management, Financial Markets, Growth Economics, Labour Economics, Industrial Organization, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Operations Research and Tourism Economics. Reflecting the research interests of its members, CEFAGE-UE is divided into four research groups: "Industrial Economics and Business Strategy", "Econometrics, Statistics and Operations Research", "Finance and Accounting" and "Labour, Regional and Macroeeconomics".
