Faculty & Researchers

For over 40 years, Nova SBE has been at the forefront of creating a global positive impact through research. Our primary areas are Economics, Finance, and Management, developed mainly within our Knowledge Centers, Laboratories, and Hubs. We aim to go beyond the conventional, attracting academics to our school who seek to make a difference and challenge the current landscape. Our Knowledge Centers drive research, fostering collaboration between more practical and theoretical research, academic courses, and executive education. Additionally, our research laboratories support faculty, promoting collective knowledge creation, and our hubs serve as crucial spaces for connection and collaboration with society.

After seven months of joining Nova SBE, I am very happy with my career choice. The students are excellent, and care about their grades, but, more importantly, they care about each other and the world. Although I consider myself predominantly a researcher, Nova SBE students have restored my love of teaching.
