The Nova SBE Master's in Impact Entrepreneurship & Innovation is a practical learning experience with the right balance between theory and practice.
We nurture your human and professional skills so you can embrace your inner potential and leave your mark in the world.
We want you to stand out from the crowd with a hands-on approach and a real-world perspective, and a keen sense of contemporary and foundational issues, such as product innovation, entrepreneurship, globalization, sustainability, and digital business.
With the support and collaboration of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in the context of the Nova SBE - Gulbenkian Chair for the Impact Economy, the program brings together the technical and personal competencies of management and innovation with an entrepreneurial journey for impact.
To support different interests and talents among our students, students will be given the chance to focus either on Entrepreneurship or Innovation. The main differentiator will be the mandatory core course "Entrepreneurship Project" - where 2 sections will be offered one focusing on entrepreneurship, the other on innovation - and the Work Project.
Students will be able to choose their track at the end of the first semester, based on recommendations from their professors and advisors. These two tracks leverage Nova SBE's resources - the Haddad Entrepreneurship Institute and the Innovation Ecosystem and provide students opportunities to explore ways to create impact (social and/or environmental).
From bachelor's programs in the scientific areas of Science, Technology or Computer Science, Engineering, Economics, Finance or Management, or other scientific areas. The program requires background knowledge in mathematics at the level of a 1st cycle in Economics or Management. For those with limited quantitative skills, it will be recommended to attend bridging courses.
For those who wish to create their own social venture or develop solutions to social problems within the organization they work for.
Aspire at bringing together the technical and personal competencies of management and innovation with an entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial journey for societal impact.
That aim for a program with a hands-on approach structure to address real-world challenges for a more equitable, sustainable, and peaceful world.
