The Nova Skills Association is one of the first clubs from Nova SBE, founded on the belief that soft skills are the most powerful catalyzers of talent and drivers of success. NSA is committed to offering students an annual Soft Skills Training Program, providing their members with real management experience. Their training program has over 3000 participants in attendance at several workshops, whose aim is the development of the students' soft skills.
Some of the workshops include oral communication, interview preparation, personal branding, emotional intelligence, and creativity. NSA hosts "Meet the Alumni" and "Creating Awareness." At the Meet the Alumni event, Nova SBE Alumni share their insights on the importance of soft skills in their own careers and lives. At "Creating Awareness", there is an individual speaker who discusses their career and how soft skills drove their success.
Some of the speakers have been Dr. Horta Osório (CEO of Lloyds Bank), Dr. Alexandre Soares dos Santos (former CEO of Jerónimo Martins), and Dr. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa (current President of the Portuguese Republic).
One important aspect about NSA is that they help develop their own members' soft skills.
As a small group of students, they are able to have personalized soft skills development for each of their members.
The program has proven success for the members, as the NSA network is growing all over Europe and in different industries – from finance, tech and consulting, to international institutions.
