Joint Diplomas

Double Degrees for MSc

At Nova SBE, students have the opportunity to take part in “double-degree programs” with one of our top partner institutions. This suits especially students who want to further their career by obtaining a masters degree from two top institutions as well as students who would like to gain deep international learning experience during their Masters program.

A double degree is an approved combined study program leading to two degrees from two universities. After successful completion of all the program requirements from both universities, a student receives a masters degree from NOVA together with a masters degree from the partner university.

Nova SBE is very selective in the choice of partner universities, adding only high profile, research oriented universities to its list. All of our partners are the leading institutions in their country in the economics and/or business field, and offer great academic opportunities that represent additional benefits for students.
