Nova School of Business & Economics (Nova SBE) is among the TOP 25 best business schools in Europe, moving up three positions to 24th place in the Financial Times ranking. This achievement confirms Nova SBE's upward path in the international context and maintains its leadership in Portugal.

The results obtained consolidate the international positioning of Nova SBE, which this year became the first Portuguese school in the world TOP 15 with its two master's degrees in the Financial Times rankings - international master's in finance (11th position worldwide and 9th in Europe) and international master's in management (15th position worldwide, which represented an increase of eight positions). It is also important to highlight the classification obtained in the Financial Times International Executive Education ranking that, in May 2022, placed Nova SBE in 22nd place worldwide, climbing 20 positions and maintaining, once again, Nova SBE as a leader in Portugal.

This Financial Times ranking of European business schools not only strengthens the school's position in the European and international context, but also recognizes the excellence of Portuguese higher education. Since Nova SBE entered the Financial Times rankings in 2011, for the first time, five Portuguese schools have been included in the prestigious ranking, all of which have risen in the general classification.  

Daniel Tra├ža, Dean of Nova SBE, points out that "at Nova SBE we are very pleased with this result, which is the consolidation of the work we have been doing in the rankings. It is with great satisfaction that we are now five Portuguese schools in the ranking, which demonstrates the excellent quality of education in Portugal."

The Financial Times ranking of European business schools evaluates a total of 95 organizations and is based on the overall scores that each school achieved in each ranking in the following Financial Times rankings, i.e. Master of Business Administration, Executive Education, MBA and EMBA.

The school believes that these results are proof that its commitment to preparing professionals and future leaders with the skills to carry out transformations towards a more humane leadership capable of ensuring a more sustainable and harmonious world is achievable and well received in business and society.
