Nova SBE Leadership for Impact Knowledge Center

Empower for Progress

As the world grows afflicted by challenges such as inequality, climate change, human trafficking, poverty, deforestation and food waste, we feel the urge to make a stop to this and challenge the way to do things. Steer leadership to social innovation, so we can gradually make the world safer, more social and eco-friendly, and create a positive impact in the way people live.

Leadership for Impact (LFI) is Nova SBE's Knowledge Center dedicated to make a change in societal grand challenges: an ambitious objective that is worth taking. That's why we focus on positive leadership research, knowledge and insights that drive society towards progress and join forces with key partners. How? By conducting social innovation projects and spreading the word that we need to take action for a better and more sustainable world.  

Nova SBE has come a long way in the social scope

Since 2010, Nova SBE is pushing towards social impact, from new Master’s courses to the creation of Data Science For Social Good Europe, among many other social achievements along the way.
