Welcome from the Program Director

You are now considering joining the PhD program in Management at Nova SBE, one of the top 30 Business Schools in Europe (Financial Times) and the only Portuguese school to be awarded with 5 Palmes by Eduniversal, thus receiving the title of ‘Universal Business School’.

By becoming a part of our school you will have the opportunity to be a part of a research center that has always been evaluated as excellent by external review committees. You will be able to share your ideas and insights with scholars from 25 nationalities that have published in the past years more than 82 papers in international journals, of which 37 were published in top journals, and whose research has captured the attention of several media outlets, such as Harvard Business Review or The Wall Street Journal.

The goal of our PhD program is not only to give you a solid theoretical and methodological basis to develop your own research, but also to provide opportunities to participate in other activities and develop your own professional network. Beyond the classes and the three seminar streams (international guests, Nova SBE’s professors, and Nova SBE’s PhD students) that our program offers, we also invite you to spend a semester abroad and to present your research at the main conferences in the different fields of management research. It is expected that by the end of the PhD students have already published a part of their research.

The quality of our research environment and our commitment to shaping powerful minds is only surpassed by the beauty, history and hospitality you will find in Lisbon, making it the perfect place to do your research with a smile.

We look forward to welcoming you at Nova SBE!

Pedro Neves
Director, PhD in Managment
