The Financial Times European Business Schools ranking confirmed Nova School of Business and Economics as one of the top 30 schools in Europe and the best school in Portugal, thus reinforcing the results obtained recently with the Eduniversal ranking.
The year of 2012 has been excellent for Nova SBE, with major accomplishments as a consequence of a reinforced presence in several rankings:
- # 47 in Executive Education
- # 21 in the Masters in Finance, distinguished further by being the world's most international program and the only Portuguese program in the ranking
- # 3 for the Masters in International Management, under the CEMS alliance
- # 50 for the Masters in Management
Nova SBE has risen 10 significant places in the European Business Schools ranking, and has been the 3rd school that most improved among the 80 schools ranked.
The rise in the rankings reflects two important features of Nova SBE: internationalization and the placement and success of our graduates in the job market.
This year stands out as a record year in terms of masters’ applications from international students. Applications rose 50%, and accounted for half of the total of masters’ applications, representing 55 different nationalities.
As far as placement of students is concerned, Nova SBE’s graduates register an employment rate of 100%, six months after completion of the course, with 40% of students to pursue international careers.
In the words of the Dean, Professor José Ferreira Machado: "We have always believed in the quality of our school and worked hard in recent years to have that translated into this international recognition. It gives us increased motivation and assures us that we can continue to attract the best talent to our school – both national and international."
