Summer Schools - Séjours courts

Les "Summer Schools" sont des séjours courts organisés par nos universités partenaires en juin, juillet et août. Ils sont ouverts aux étudiants de la L1 jusqu'au M2, la langue d'enseignement est principalement l'anglais. 
Une Summer School est une excellente façon d'approfondir vos connaissances dans un domaine particulier ou de découvrir un sujet qui vous intéresse, une opportunité de recevoir les enseignements de professeurs internationaux, de découvrir des pédagogies différentes, dans des petits groupes ou l'interculturalité est de mise.

Les Summer Schools représentent une chance unique de faire partie d'une classe internationale et tout en étudiant dans un nouveau pays et au sein d'une nouvelle culture. En plus de vos études, les Summer Schools vous proposent des activités sociales et culturelles en dehors des cours, où vous pouvez rencontrer d'autres étudiants et profiter de la vie culturelle de la ville que vous choisirez.

Nova SBE, the leading Portuguese business school, is uniquely placed to offer a summer school that mixes state-of-the-art short courses on International Management and related subjects with unique knowledge of how internationally-minded Portuguese firms exploit business opportunities. In sum, rigorous academic knowledge blended with an in situ introduction to successful Portuguese firms is what we wish to offer our foreign students. Welcome to Nova SBE!
The structure of the course: four academic courses each involving eight hours in-class teaching offered in the morning; international business, contemporary history, strategy and corss-cultural management. Four visits to corporations held in the afternoon and one day per week for cultural sight-seeing.
