Every single one of Oxy Capital’s 12 Nova SBE Alumni is proud 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 that Nova SBE Alumni have towards the school’s ambitions for the future and the way the new campus will contribute to that have led us, 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 radically changing the college education system with an exponential increase in mobility among European students. Some schools 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 schools and consolidate its status as one of the top schools in Europe.

It is impressive to see the support that this project is receiving from private donors and Alumni, which demonstrates that even in a public university good projects do not have to be always financed by taxpayers. Every single one of Oxy Capital’s 12 Nova SBE Alumni is proud to contribute and have their names engraved in the new campus for all future generations to see and sense the pride of belonging to such an ambitious project.

All of us benefited greatly by being a part of Nova SBE and, therefore, we are happy to give back by participating in this ambitious campaign.
