Demand for new Nova SBE course soars
Lisbon’s Nova School of Business and Economics has launched a new Master’s degree in Impact Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
Created together with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Master’s which initially had 30 pupils signed up, now has 89 because of the demand from candidates, 82% of which are from overseas.
Starting this month, the pioneering management post-graduate degree was developed to meet today’s challenges and a growing demand in training in ecosystem impact.
The MA which initially foresaw 30 vacancies received a lot of applications and interest which called on the Nova SBE to create more vacancies, with classes for the new Master’s including 89 students from 17 nationalities.
The Master’s is designed for students who come from different backgrounds and wish to create their own social venture or develop solutions to social problems within the organiSation they work for. The program is structured with a hands-on approach to address real-world challenges for a more equitable, sustainable, and peaceful world.
Students must complete a Master’s Work Project, which is equivalent to a Master’s Thesis, supervised by a professor. This project will be based on the students’ ideas to tackle grand challenges, either their own social venture or an innovative solution to implement within an existing organisation.
