People & Culture

Nova SBE is more than a school: It’s a community open to the world where students, faculty, staff, companies and professionals from many different industries meet every day. Here, we embrace diversity and learn from it. We are a meeting point for curious and restless minds, with a common goal to do different, to do better. We usually say that here... we are all pioneers.

At Nova SBE, we learn to be the best version of ourselves, putting everything we are into everything we do. We are a community focused on entrepreneurship, dedicated to creating talent and solutions capable of transforming the world in a positive way. It's what we call the Nova Way of Life - a new way of living, doing, being and learning.

Here, we focus on our people and our culture, which is unique - we seek individual development, without ever forgetting the well-being of all.

Our purpose is clear: to impact the world in a positive way.  This is the mission that makes us wake up every day with the will and energy to do more and better. Here, we are all pioneers.

Working at Nova SBE is not being afraid to create, propose or dream with new projects. If we fail, we will fail better next time. But if we get it right, we know that we have just built a little piece of the future for all different parties (students, community, corporate world).

Working at Nova is, funny enough, like going back to school - a place where we learn every day. Here, we are challenged daily by innovative projects and disruptive approaches. At Nova SBE, we find an inexhaustible source of professionals with different origins, backgrounds and perspectives that cohabit and collaborate in the creation of an inspiring and unique ecosystem in Portugal. At Nova SBE, the only certainty is that any day will hardly look the same as another.

João Oliveira

I am impressed every day by the enormous will to change the world that moves everyone who works here, from the oldest to the most recent; we all feel that we have a mission that is bigger than ourselves. This is reflected in the creativity, the energy we put into the projects, the persistence, and the collaboration.

Joana Barba

Working at Nova SBE has allowed me to grow personally and professionally, in an environment with an excellent work-life balance, where I have been able to develop personally challenging and innovative projects with an impact on the organization and the community.

Frederico Pinto

Working at Nova SBE gives you a chance to “travel the world” without leaving our Carcavelos campus. You interact with students from all over the world and, hopefully, manage to have a positive impact on their current and future lives. More than a job, working at Nova SBE it is an opportunity to make the world a better place.

Carolina Sales

My work experience at Nova SBE can be described in three concepts: constant learning and development; participation in projects that aim to create impact in society, and immersion in a very dynamic and people-oriented culture.
