Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence

A small number of gifted individuals can have a great impact on society. The Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence identifies the most talented students in the school and empowers them to change the world.

The program includes exclusive networking opportunities, social impact experiences, a leadership program with business leaders as keynote speakers, and tuition fees support. This merit-based program is offered to students with demonstrated academic excellence, outstanding performance in sports, and culture and social engagement. The award is sponsored by benefactors and corporations who want to empower high-achievement students with energy and aspiration.

The Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence prepares individuals to achieve their full potential as students, no doubt, but also as citizens and human beings. In other words, it gives the Fellows the opportunity to go out into the world and leave their mark; whatever that mark might be; it is an ecosystem where energy and creativity turn into deeds - where aspirations and dreams become day-to-day life. It sees individual accomplishment as the foundation of social progress, which is to say it believes the Fellows will become the next generation of business and society leaders. We invite organizations to become part of the future and support this outstanding talent by:

  • Strategic involvement
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Learning opportunities
  • Financial contribution

The future of our world depends on the skills, the values, and the attitude we develop in the following generations.

Daniel Traça, Nova SBE Dean

The Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence is a two-way street. We want to celebrate, reward, and invest in great talent. And we expect exceptional talent to give back to the school and society.

Our students


This Fellowship for Excellence scholarship program rewards our Master’s students’ excellence and dedication and prepares them to reach their full potential as students and world citizens.

My biggest achievement has to be securing the Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence Scholarship. (…) when you realize that you're in a place that sees your potential and recognizes what you are capable of, you know that you are exactly where you need to be. (…) I am confident that this is only the beginning and only a small example of the kind of potential that the Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence scholarship program will help me unlock (…).”

Dipta Chopra

One of my biggest achievements that I am most proud of is getting accepted to Nova SBE. This accomplishment is a result of my dedication over the past few years, whether it be in terms of my academic or professional performance. (…) Now having the opportunity to experience this high level of education at Nova SBE in the course of my Master's in Management and being part of the Nova SBE Fellowship for Excellence is a huge honor to me.

Hannah Mooslechner

(…) I have just achieved a personal milestone because I got accepted into my dream Master's program – the International Master's in Finance at Nova SBE with a double degree at Bocconi University (…). When I heard the news, I felt extremely excited to have the chance to grow and learn even more at such prestigious universities. I was extremely proud of myself because I worked so hard for this, and I feel like I really deserve it and that all my hard work paid off.
