What you need to know before enrolling

To apply for an Exchange Program at Nova SBE you first need to check whether your Home University is a Nova SBE partner - you can find the list of partner universities below. Then, you will have to go through the selection process at your Home University. After formal nomination our Exchange Team will contact you with further details - filling out the Data Form and preparing the Learning Agreement. 


In order to enroll in second-cycle courses, incoming students must have completed at least 180 ECTS at their home university.

Applicants to the Masters’ programs in Economics, in Finance, and in Management are required to hold an undergraduate degree.


The Programs demand the use of quantitative techniques, so applicants should have had exposure to adequate quantitative subjects in their previous academic studies.

Students are expected to be fluent in oral and written English as the courses are offered in English.

Presenting a B2 English level certificate is mandatory for non-English natives.
