Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Prepared within the scope of the frequency of the master's degree in Educational Sciences, specialization in Administration and School Organization, taught by the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences of the Portuguese Catholic University, this report presents a critical and reflective analysis of my professional career, namely as responsible for the ESEDJTMM Mobility and International Cooperation Office(GMCI), transmitted in june 2020 to CVP, now called ESECVP-Alto Tâmega. The GMCI is responsible for the internationalization strategy of the institution,namely, for the management of mobility programs for students, teachers and nonteachers, under the European programs PROAVL (Lifelong Learning Program) andErasmus +. Between 2013 and 2018 is the time period in which the mobilities targetedfor analysis and reflection were developed, especially based on data available in digitalfiles, at the Mobility Tool, of the European Commission. Bearing in mind the effort of theoretical conceptualization of part I of thereport, focusing on the school as an organization, the organizational models, the idea ofthe school emerged as an organization traditionally described as bureaucratic, but thatcannot escape other images such as the political arena, organized anarchy, perceptionsthat will support the decision-making process and leadership style, not only within thescope of the GMCI, but also as an adjunct to the Board of ESECV-Alto Tâmega, bylisting the advantages and limitations of each metaphor. With regard tointernationalization, approaches and motivations, the degree of internationalization ofESECVP-Alto Tâmega was perceived, the conceptual confusion of acceptances and, at the same time, the importance of an investment by IES in its competitiveness, as a response to the globalization process, presenting the mobility of students and staff,through the European programs PROAVL and Erasmus+ as one of its forms of operationalization.
