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!
