  • Nova SBE ForTuna


    The ForTuna of Nova School of Business and Economics was founded in 1993 by two students, with the goal of fostering the academic spirit, contributing to the musical training and personal development of its elements  and honoring the name of the School.
    These musical groups are part of the Portuguese universities' tradition.
    ForTuna has about 40 elements, bringing together a wide range of musical instruments: guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, bass, tambourines, among others. It has a wide repertoire consisting mostly of originals but also including adapted songs. Representing our school in both events in Lisbon and in other localities, we favor conviviality and music.

  • The Nova Case Team (NCT) wants to encourage the already existing Nova SBE work ethic among its members. Considering this, NCT aims to effectively qualify top students, training them to face the current market challenges. Furthermore, the NCT has a strong international focus, having as a goal for each semester/academic year to enroll students in an international Case Solving Competition, strengthening relationships between Nova SBE and other institutions. Alongside Nova SBE, the NCT aims to provide students, and Portugal, with international recognition. Additionally, the NCT intends to promote an inclusive and dynamic environment where its members feel valuable and motivated.

    All in all, the NCT believes that there is an emerging need to develop problem-solving skills, which are undoubtedly sought in the job market. Thus, considering not only soft but also hard skills directly related to this area, the NCT looks forward to promoting new areas of interest in the university so that students can be capable of accepting higher challenges, while carrying Nova SBE both national and internationally. Overall, the NCT looks forward to creating even stronger powerful minds.
