We are very proud that every single one of Oxy Capital’s 12 Nova SBE alumni decided to contribute

Gonçalo Lucas Mendes, BSc Economics ‘97, is Partner at Oxy Capital. Oxy Capital, and Gonçalo individually, are donors of Fundação Alfredo de Sousa.

 

The enthusiasm among Nova SBE alumni with the vision that the University has for the future and the way the new campus contributes to that vision lead us, the partners of Oxy Capital, to create a matching contribution program to participate in a project that is boldly innovative in Portugal.

The Bologna education reform is changing radically the college education system with an exponential increase in mobility among students across Europe. There are Universities that will be the major recipients of that mobility and Nova SBE is showing the leadership, the focus and the ambition to be one of those and consolidate its position as one of the top schools in Europe.

It is impressive the support that the project is receiving from private donors and alumni, showing that even in a public University good projects do not have to be always financed by taxpayers.

We are very proud that every single one of Oxy Capital’s 12 Nova SBE alumni decided to contribute and will have their names engraved in the new campus for all future generations to sense the pride of belonging to an ambitious project and the responsibility to perform and share part of their success.

All of us benefited greatly by attending Nova SBE and therefore are happy to give back by participating in this ambitious campaign.
