NOVA School of Business & Economics
Spring Semester Program
NOVA is location in Lisbon (Portuguese: Lisboa), the capital of Portugal. Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, with a contemporary culture that is alive and thriving and making its mark in today's Europe. Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is one of the rare Western European cities that face the ocean and uses water as an element that defines the city.
Due to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon has a pleasant climate throughout the year. The agreeable temperatures in the summer months are an open invitation for a walk by the river, or to spend an afternoon in one of the many street cafés to be found all over the city. Temperatures may fall somewhat in the autumn and winter months, but sunshine is almost always a constant feature.
Lisbon enchants travelers with its white bleached limestone buildings, intimate alleyways, and an easy going charm. The city lies more or less in the center of the country and offers a wide variety of options to the visitor, including beaches, countryside, mountains and areas of historical interest only a few miles away from the city center.
Students will directly enroll at the NOVA School of Business & Economics. Founded in 1978, the NOVA leads Portugal in the teaching and research of Economics and Business Administration disciplines.
All courses available to exchange students are taught in English.
Check out all of the courses offered at NOVA. Some of these courses already have USD course equivalencies establishes which you can see here : Portugal: NOVA Pre-Approved Course Listings . If there are courses you are interested in taking which do not have a USD equivalency listed, please contact Ali Droster with the course information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students may also elect to enroll in a Portuguese-language and culture course for exchange students.
Students will live in apartments off-campus. The Student Exchange Office will assist students by providing you a list of contacts upon arrival.
EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES
Orientation and Buddy Program: The Students Exchange Office organizes a Welcome Meeting for incoming exchange students before the beginning of each semester.
In the Welcome Meeting, students receive some general information on the school, on the location of the support services and classrooms, and you will know the relevant people, including your "buddy" (a current student from Portugal), whom you may call for advice and help as needed.
