Joint Leadership

At Nova Social Consulting we work together. What proves to be right for our members is also true for us, the Management Board. Our main objective is to be of best service to NSC members so they can excel in their projects! We organize workshops, invite our corporate partners and provide on-going guidance throughout the semester. We are aware of the need for constant development of a student association. For this reason, the Management Board works closely together with alumni, university professors and consultants to be the best and most professional student association in Portugal.

Mission

We strive for maximizing the social impact our clients have in society, while promoting the development of our members and leveraging on strong partnerships.
