The Department of Strategy and Logistics aims to be an active, leading and innovative academic environment that develops and disseminates knowledge in the areas of strategy, logistics and business ethics.
Collaboration with business and industry on research and education
The Department of Strategy and Logistics works closely with national and international research communities, business and public administration. The Department also participates in several relevant research projects. Read more about the Department's research projects.
The Department of Strategy and Logistics conducts research and education in business school topics that are relevant in many of the key industries in Norway. The aim of the research on industrial competitiveness is to help highlight the various industries' impact on the Norwegian economy and the opportunities and challenges related to value creation in some of Norway's key industries.
The Department of Strategy and Logistics has two endowed professorships sponsored by the business community. Endowed professorships strengthen BI's contact with leading players in Norwegian business and industry, and have resulted in several relevant business programmes and research projects for the companies involved.
- Shipowner Tom Wilhelmsen's Foundation Chair – Professor Torger Reve.
The endowed professorship provides an opportunity to generate new knowledge about the maritime industry and is therefore an important inspiration for improving both research and teaching at BI in a field that is very important for Norway's future economic development.
- Telenor Chair of International Strategy and Management – Professor Øystein Fjeldstad.
The professorship's topic, culturally conditioned innovation, focuses on how technological advances can be translated into constructive community building in countries with different cultures.
