NOVA IMS allowed me to make not just "one" choice. Today I see that no other course could have given me the tools to be able to move in the technological future. Thanks to the comprehensive training provided by NOVA IMS, I am able to talk about marketing, programming, and management, with professionals from other areas. To be a NOVA IMS student is to be a professional " technological polyglot." These are the characteristics, developed by the rigor and excellence with which we are taught, by which the business market opens the doors not only at the end but also during the course. Studying at NOVA IMS is to complete the course surrounded by great friends, intelligent and innovative knowledge, and a second home forever.
I feel constantly challenged and learning at NOVA IMS because it is a course in English and because of the demanding study plan, where we acquire many technological and entrepreneurial skills, promoting our personal and intellectual growth.
In the practical subjects, such as Computing, we don't need previous knowledge because the teachers provide us with all the necessary tools and bases to enhance our performance.
It's a university that invests in the integration of the student from the very first day, with several activities and initiatives, with the mentoring program or through the participation in the Students Association, of which I am a member.
NOVA IMS invests in the future of students, developing several workshops and projects in partnership with many companies, allowing direct contact with the world of work. It publishes several job proposals throughout the semesters, and students are always up to date with the opportunities.
It is a course of the future, and without a doubt, we feel it. It was the best decision I made.
During my undergraduate degree course, I managed to acquire skills that fit current business requirements, because, in addition to the excellence that NOVA IMS accustomed and instilled in us, we also developed strong technical and soft skills that place us in an excellent market position. Studying at NOVA IMS is to represent a faculty at the forefront of technological development, which challenges itself every day to provide its students with excellent teaching, focused on research and innovation. In addition to the academic component, the environment we live in is of great proximity between colleagues and teachers, so it is a familiar environment, which at the moment remains part of my daily life as I am attending the Master Degree Program in Information Management with a specialization in Marketing Intelligence.
After finishing high school, I chose to study at NOVA IMS because it is a renowned university that promotes academic excellence. Furthermore, it has a more family-like environment since there are only two undergraduate programs, which allowed me to better integrate in this new stage of my life.
For someone like me, who is passionate about programming and technology in general, my experience as a freshman in the Bachelor of Information Systems course has exceeded all my expectations. Although I entered in a pandemic situation, I never felt that it had a very high impact on an academic level, and I am fully aware that this happened due to all the care and solutions implemented by the university.
Thus, I have all the reasons to recommend NOVA IMS to all those looking for a university focused on a high-level education that is more family-oriented and with excellence through research.
The Postgraduate Program in Digital Enterprise Management at NOVA IMS helps business leaders to answer the challenges of the digital age by providing the tools to “orchestrate” the Why, What and How to deal with a business transformation. Also, the close connection of the professors between academia and the real world of business, the partnerships and the different backgrounds and industries of the colleagues, give us a great opportunity to learn and share knowledge activating our collective brain.
It was a great experience!
Attending the Postgraduate Program was decisive in consolidating my vision of the functioning of health systems. Understanding how technology supports and leverages data analysis and healthcare decisions made me proactive in contributing to the digital transformation of the sector for the benefit of citizens. At NOVA IMS I found a very captivating academic diversity associated with new and updated teaching, work and problem-solving methodologies that greatly contributed to my satisfaction with the postgraduate program.
NOVA IMS continues to be a reference in teaching excellence, which is why it was the school I chose not only for my bachelor’s degree, but also for my master's degree. The programs, whether undergraduate or post-graduate, are quite versatile, covering several areas, which allows us to have a curriculum with multidisciplinary skills with a strong focus on the practical part, offering great flexibility when choosing the market area where we want to work. NOVA IMS was the right decision as it provided me constant personal and professional growth as well as a set of crucial skills when integrating into the business world.
The specialization in Marketing Intelligence allows you to explore the incredible power of data science in optimizing communication strategies that make an impact and add value to multiple stakeholders.
