Together for our students

Nova SBE and the corporate world

Nova SBE works hand in hand with the most demanding companies, listening to their needs and understanding their ambitions. Together, we create a unique learning platform that blends academic knowledge with business experience.

This approach guarantees that all programs respond to the challenges of working life and that our students are able to progress rapidly in the business world.

The Alumni & Corporate Relations Office is the point of contact for companies and institutions that want to be part of this community — being recruiters of Nova students, participating in school life, supporting the school and its students or being part of their development.


At HSBC we consider Nova SBE one of the top business schools to recruit from, and I am extremely proud to be an alumnus.

António Simões,
BSc Economics '83, CEO HSBC Europe


The most important skills of these students are: the learning agility that our rapid-pace businesses demand, and the intellectual curiosity and passion for innovation that will drive us into the future.

Pedro Soares dos Santos,
CEO of Jerónimo Martins Group.


At Google we consider Nova SBE one of the finest sources of talent.

Bernardo Correia,
BSc Economics '95.
