What is an Income Share Agreement (ISA) by Fundação José Neves (FJN)?
This is an innovative financing model, different from a traditional credit.
ISA aims to support Portuguese students in accessing learning programs that enable them to acquire the right skills for the future.
Fundação José Neves (FJN) will make the master’s tuition fee full payment directly to Nova SBE.  Students do not need to provide guarantees to benefit from the program.
They will only reimburse the payment when one starts working and if one reaches the professional goals that were defined with FJN at the time of the ISA subscription.

Who can apply for ISA FJN?
ISA FJN addresses all Portuguese candidates accepted and enrolled in a master's program at Nova SBE (except for the CEMS MIM program).

How to apply for an ISA FJN?
Students must enrol first in one of the Nova SBE master's programs and then they will be eligible to apply for an ISA FJN.
Application takes place on José Neves Foundation's website, on the "apply" button, and it's a digital and straightforward process, in which the use of the digital mobile key is required.
