Spring admission faqs
We offer a Spring intake for both the International Masters in Management and Masters in Management because it’s the only master’s program which curriculum comprises mandatory courses in both semesters, thus allowing students to start the program without any academic disadvantage.
No. The program is the same curriculum-wise. The difference between the programs lies on the additional requirements the International Masters requires, i.e. international mobility experience (only for those who completed a Bachelors program in Portugal) and proof of knowledge in a second foreign language at A2 level. If you are eligible to apply for the IMM, you can still do the exchange program.
You can request to change from the regular master program to the International master after you begin your studies at Nova SBE and as soon as you become eligible. You need to submit a request for change of degree before the Work Project semester and pay an administrative transfer fee. You can only transfer once.
No. You will follow the same curricular sequence and will have the same opportunities as other students.
No. Bridging courses are only available in August. If you come from a non-business related background and feel you would benefit from these introductory classes, we recommend that you consider applying in the Fall rather than in the Spring intake.
International tracks, such as Double Degree and CEMS MIM, aren’t available for the Spring intake due to calendar constraints. However, you can always apply for an exchange program once you begin your studies. Please note, you will be able to apply for the CEMS MIM in February, but you will only be able start the MIM year in September of the following year, leaving a gap semester, during which you can do the international internship.
Yes, you will be requested to pay a non-refundable enrolment fee of €1000.
Admitted students can defer for up to one semester without having to re-apply, provided they pay the non-refundable enrolment fee of €1000 by 27 October to guarantee their place and inform the school by 15 December. If you fail this deadline you will need to submit a new application.
The tuition fees are charged in identical instalments per semester, except for the first one because the enrolment fee will be deducted from the first instalment. The first instalment of €2 300 will be due on 15 December 2017. The remaining two instalments (€3 300 each) will be due on 15 September 2018 and 15 February 2019.
No. There will be a welcome session before classes start on January 31, but we recommended that you participate in the Discovery week of the following academic year.
Students beginning in Spring will defend their final thesis in June 2019. The official graduation ceremony takes place in January each year.
No. Scholarships are only available for the Fall intake, for those who apply in February-May.
