Welcome to

Nova School of Business and Economics

Who doesn’t remember felling terrified on their first day of school?
But who doesn’t remember feeling excited at the same time?

Welcome! The adventure starts now!



Applications for the beNova scholarships 17/18 are now open!

Created in 2012 by three Nova SBE Alumni – Virgínia Lopes, Eduardo Marques and José Portela – in collaboration with Nova SBE, the beNova Scholarships Program aims to guarantee that students with financial difficulties will continue with their studies. The beNova Scholarships are awarded to those with excellent academic results and those who show a big commitment and involvement with the school (volunteering activities, club participation, tutoring, etc.), thus prompting them to invest in their talent.
