In recent years, the higher education policy in Portugal has focused, among other things, on improving the quality and relevance of the training the school offers, promoting mobility and internationalization, increasing partnerships with institutions, and structuring an internationally recognized quality assurance system.

These are also the goals that Nova SBE pursues, which reflect on its mission, vision, and strategy.

As one of NOVA University Lisbon’s organic units, Nova SBE has included specific objectives and indicators in its Strategic Plan to support the Quality Policy, namely through the development and implementation of NOVA SIMAQ - NOVA's Internal Quality Monitoring and Evaluation System.
