Key points

MIM programme at this school

The CEMS MIM at Nova SBE is a two-year Master’s program. On year 1, students follow the Master’s in Economics, Finance, Management or Business Analytics curriculum. On year 2, the CEMS MIM offers courses and projects developed in a synchronized way by the 33 business schools of the Alliance. 

The program is designed for bachelor graduates from around the world with an ambition to become a global responsible leader in any country and culture. Nova SBE is looking for students who are not only academically successful but also display a high standard of ethical conduct, who can draw upon cultural diversity with respect and empathy, and who show professional responsibility and accountability concerning society as a whole. 

This program is geared toward preparing students for leadership positions in the competitive international labour market.

Living in the city

Built on the values of diversity, tolerance and open-mindness, with a dynamic entrepreneurial environment, Lisbon is the place to live, learn and grow. Experience everything Lisbon has to offer: good food, vibrant nightlife, stunning architecture and a breath-taking environment. The city takes you to a cultural journey to one of Europe’s most soulful, captivating and picturesque capitals built on a series of hills with amazing sightseeing spots from every angle. 

Nova SBE is the home to the most innovative way of learning, sharing, and growing in Europe. As such, the 90.000 m² new campus of Nova School of Business and Economics stands out as an idyllic scenario, next to the ocean, for a learning experience like no other. Our campus is located in Cascais, the premier holiday destination of the Lisbon coastline. This is a traditional and charming Portuguese fishing town, which has responsibly developed into a fashionable summer resort.
Nova School of Business and Economics’ campus is very close to Lisbon (only 20 minutes from the city center). 

Students can enjoy an outstanding learning experience under everlasting sunlight. Portugal has about 290 sunny days per year and the temperatures rarely go below 10ºC (50ºF) in the winter. You may consider starting some surfing lessons!

CEMS Club Lisbon

The CEMS Club Lisbon is a networking platform between CEMS Students, CEMS Alumni, Corporate Partners and Academic Members. Its main goal is to combine the academic program with social and professional events, while improving student life and enhancing the relationships between all stakeholders.

The CEMS Club Lisbon represents all the CEMS students currently studying at NOVA SBE, home and incoming.
