NOVA Information Management School (NOVA IMS) is part of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. It was founded in 1989 in order to provide a solution to the growing need for information technologies and the shortage of senior management specialists in information management. The School offers degrees accredited by different professional bodies such as AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), EMOS (European Master in Official Statistics) and others.Show more
I’ve studied at NOVA IMS for a year and I got completely surprised by how bad this university works, regardless of all the good marketing and supposedly “great rankings”.
However, the truth is that as soon as you start, you’ll understand there are lots of problems regarding the planning of the courses, institutional procedures and specially, you’ll soon confirm by yourself there is no effort at all on helping students, even with problems caused by their lack of organization and bad planning.View more
It is a good university to combine two main areas, management and technology. It has international teachers and the conditions are being improved in last few years. The Campus is also very well located.View more
Nova IMS have very good teachers, that have a good relationship with the students, feedback about the master is asked to improve in the level of education of the students. All my classes had individual PCs to make easier for us to learn in classes.View more
The Information Management School is a smaller faculty of NOVA University of Lisbon. It is really well equipped and has a nice campus. I took Bachelor courses there on my Erasmus semester. To be honest for me the classes weren’t that interesting, mostly because I already studied most of the material at my home university, being a Master’s student. Their policy to not let Erasmus students take master courses is not really fair. I didn’t need the Master’s classes fortunately, but others might have problems because of this.
And as far as I saw the school focuses much more on it’s Master’s Program. Most of the interesting courses and specializations were there.
The students’ community was nice, the Student’s Union helped us if we had any problems. My only problem was with the integration of the foreign students with the local ones.
