Corporate Collaboration

Companies, faculty and students — together

Nova SBE has a team fully committed to the development of research projects with our corporate partners.

We combine the knowledge from our faculty and research groups with school talent – master students, consultants and our alumni network – to address challenges ahead.

The projects offer relevant experience to students, while bringing specialized technical support to clients.

CEMS Partnership

Forming global citizens

Nova SBE is a member of CEMS, a global alliance of academic and corporate institutions dedicated to educating and preparing future generations of international business leaders.

CEMS’ academic and corporate members work collectively to develop knowledge and provide education considered essential in today’s multilingual, multicultural and interconnected business world. The joint CEMS Master’s in International Management is the main vehicle for achieving this goal.

What global citizenship means to CEMS

Pursuing excellence
High standards of performance and ethical conduct

Cultural diversity
Understanding differences with respect and empathy

Professional responsibility
Accountability in relation to society as a whole.

Consulting Labs

Our consulting labs work like a real consulting firm: a team of 3 to 6 master students, supervised by a professor, address a problem proposed by a corporate client. Typically the project lasts 3 months and involves a close interaction with the clients that contributes to reach the best results.
