Nova SBE Executive Education joins UNICON
The global consortium of business schools, which is considered a global reference in Executive Education, will have Nova SBE as an associated member.
It was last April 24th 2018 that UNICON’s Board, which gathered at the BI Norwegian Business School, in Oslo, Norway, approved Nova SBE as an associate member of this prestigious global consortium of Executive Education schools.
Nova SBE is one of the only two Portuguese schools to be a part of this consortium, joining institutions such as Harvard, IMD, INSEAD, or Wharton – something that strengthens the school’s ambition and excellence.
“Being accepted by UNICON is an acknowledgment of Nova SBE’s best work and the quality it has been bolstering. Additionally, being among the very best allows us to learn from them, establish partnerships and access knowledge that we intend to provide our companies and boards in Portugal to their benefit”, underlines Luís Rodrigues, Nova SBE’s Executive Education CEO, who will serve as UNICON Primary Representative.
