Research

Expertise that impacts the world

For over 40 years, we’ve been creating a positive international impact. Our investment in research has created solutions that people can use in their daily lives, contributing to a closer relationship with society and our stakeholders. Our research wants to push the boundaries of knowledge and strive to find exceptional solutions for societal challenges.

Research at Nova SBE focuses on three primary disciplinary areas – Economics, Finance, and Management – across Nova SBE Knowledge Centers (KCs), and several Nova SBE Labs and Hubs. We want to transform the world and dare to aim higher and higher. We will strengthen our community with scholars who don’t settle for the status quo and want to make a difference.

The Nova SBE Knowledge Centers’ main activities focus on developing research, help cross-fertilize applied and fundamental research, academic programs, and executive education. Our research Labs support faculty in their research and enhance knowledge co-production. Nova SBE Hubs are our gateway to engage and collaborate with society.

Nova SBE Knowledge Centers

We believe that creating and spreading knowledge is an important tool to evolve into a more enlightened society, and that’s why we count on eight Knowledge Centers. Each one with its specific approach, their goal is to answer important questions, both for today’s and tomorrow’s society.
