Nova SBE's Executive Education has once again reinforced its national leadership in the new edition of the Financial Times Executive Education 2024 ranking.

In the ranking of Customized Programs - programs developed to respond specifically to the needs of each client company - where it reached 13th place worldwide, Nova SBE's Executive Education reached 7th place in the Applicability and Career Opportunities (Future Use) indicator, which shows the close connection between the school and the organizations, a fundamental pillar in Nova SBE's Executive Education programs. 

In the ranking of Open Programs, where it also maintained its national leadership, the school came in 26th place at European level with special emphasis on the Multinationality of Participants (International Participants), which gave it 11th place in this indicator, reinforcing the global positioning of Nova SBE's Executive Education. 

Pedro Oliveira, Dean of Nova SBE, reinforces that "Our customized programs being the 13th best in the world is a source of immense pride for us and we should all be congratulated. As the Financial Times Executive Education rankings reaffirm Portugal's position on the global educational stage, it's clear that Nova SBE remains steadfast in its commitment to excellence. These results not only validate our dedication but also highlight Portugal as a beacon for first-rate education." 

Pedro Brito, Associate Director and CEO of Executive Education at Nova SBE, considers that "The consistent rise of several Portuguese business schools in the Financial Times rankings is a clear indicator of the quality of management education in Portugal. At Nova SBE Executive Education, we believe that our prominence comes not only from our ability to adapt and be flexible in the face of market needs, but also from the way we continue to innovate and adapt our educational offer, always maintaining a spirit of partnership with other local and international educational institutions. This recognition is a celebration of the collective excellence that enriches our country."

For the first time without aggregated global results (which resulted from the combined calculation of the rankings obtained in the open programs and customized programs), the Financial Times Executive Education 2024 ranking once again distinguishes Nova SBE's Executive Education as the national leader.
