The Economist’s 2019 international ranking elected NOVA’s School of Business and Economics (NOVA SBE) Master in Management the world’s 34th best.
The ranking “evaluates the performance of the Masters in Management in different business schools around the world, according to criteria of excellence in teaching, employability, reach and diversity of recruiters, among many others.” NOVA SBE explains in an official statement.
This is not the first time that the world speaks highly of NOVA SBE. Recall that the Business School had been 34th in the same ranking in 2017 with its “Master in International Management”, standing “once again [as] the only Portuguese business school to be featured.”
“Nova SBE and, I am sure, the whole community is proud of this result. The position we occupy shows that we are on the right track in the consolidation of our internationalization strategy”, Professor Daniel Traça, NOVA SBE’s Dean was quoted in the communique.
For Rita Campos e Cunha, Associate Dean for pre-experience studies of NOVA SBE, this master’s programme aims at preparing “the leaders of the future with the motivation to learn, with ethical qualities, and with care for people and real problems”.
The course was established in 2010, targetting both national and international students from any academic background who want to pursue their studies in management. “That is why the Master’s has core courses, areas of expertise, electives, and professional development modules, where students can choose specific subjects that best suit their academic and professional goals”, SBE adds.
