Nova School of Business and Economics

1. International Mobility

Internationalization is an important goal at Nova School of Business and Economics. The Faculty has exchange agreements with more than 200 internationally acknowledged universities worldwide and receives an increasing number of students and teachers every year.

The Faculty participates in several European programs, namely Erasmus+, Erasmus-Mundus and Santander Universities Scholarships and hosts several partnerships with international higher education institutions for the mobility of students, by means of bilateral agreements.

Nova SBE was the first Portuguese institution to be distinguished with international accreditations in the area of the Management education, obtaining the EQUIS and AMBA accreditations in 2004 and 2005 respectively. The third accreditation was granted in 2009, allowing the School to complete the so called 'Triple Crown', the renowned International Management Schools’ accreditation.

Among the 15,000 business schools worldwide only about 500 are accredited by AACSB. Among those less than 80 are distinguished by the 'Triple Crown'. Only 10 of those are members of the CEMS’ selective network constituted by 30 Schools from 30 different countries, each one being chosen as the top School in their country. This network offers the unique pre-experience Masters in International Management present in four different continents. In Portugal, this program is exclusively offered by Nova SBE.

The results obtained by Nova SBE in the various rankings confirm that the School is on the right track and are a recognition of the quality and effort of Nova SBE: of its faculty, staff and students.

With the rising internationalization and reputation of its programs, the School is on the path to take a place among the top, in the years to come.
