  • “The environment that we live at Nova SBE is amazing for our education, academically and personally speaking. The possibility of meeting people from different cultures on a daily basis, to be assisted by such a friendly team of coordinators, and at the same time learn with the best professors is something that few universities can offer. Overall, I can say that Nova SBE is not only my university, but also my home away from home, and to see it grow makes me really happy.” (Enrico Oliveira, BSc in Management)
  • “Coming in from Brazil was a challenge! But at Nova SBE I found great colleagues who were key to my integration and with whom it is easy to talk, work, and learn. The program is demanding, so the peer tutoring really helped me improve my performance and meet other students. And then there is Lisbon, the most welcoming and beautiful city… my favorite spots include the many panoramic views – I recommend the Miradouro de São Pedro!” (Renan Velho, BSc in Management)
