Nova SBE, a new choice for a new future.

Nova School of Business & Economics is the leading business school in Portugal in the areas of Economics, Finance, and Management through its undergraduate, Master’s, Ph.D., MBA, and Executive Education programs, which are top-ranked by the Financial Times. But Nova SBE is so much more than a school of Business and Economics, it is a Nova way of being a school, based in Portugal, and open to the world.

Its collaborative teaching encourages each student to grow boldly, and its impactful research contributes to transforming the world in responsible and inclusive ways. The school is located in Carcavelos, Portugal, a safe, welcoming, and exciting place with more than 70 % sunny days a year. And Portugal is one of a kind. Its people, culture, and weather make it a welcoming place for people from all over the world.

Its idyllic campus portraits Portugal’s rich culture and diversity and embodies the archetype of Portuguese reality: it is near the metropolis, yet close to the sea, while also being close to places where history and culture live with its undulating streets and landmarks, both ancient  and futuristic.
