You are approaching a moment in your life of increasing and more complex choices. The world of work has become global. You have plenty to choose but that makes your life only but more challenging.

Did you ever wonder about what a job in a large multi-national corporation entails? Or maybe in a global strategy consulting firm? What about working for an NGO or in the public sector? What if you would just start your own high-tech business or social enterprise Do you think that would suit you? Based on these choices, how should your educational path look like? And how will work look like in the future anyway? Should work be more than just a pay check? What is the meaning of work for you?

The Nova SBE “Future of (Your) Work” Summer School aims to support you in finding answers to these and other pressing questions. It is a journey to discover what motivates you and where you think you can make a meaningful impact.


During 2 intense weeks in cosmopolitan Lisbon and exquisite Cascais, you will understand and experience how different organizations in various sectors operate and the career paths they offer. You will work closely with the executives and senior professionals of these organizations to explore scenarios for the future of (your) work. You will build an international network and learn from the best about careers and making meaningful choices. You will develop your own career compass to support you in your work and educational choices. All this while having fun in one of the hottest spots in Europe at the moment!

Lisbon is a great city and you can enjoy it the full extent during this program. The surf lesson was awesome!
