Den globale koronapandemien gjorde 2020 til et krevende og helt spesielt år for studenter og ansatte ved Handelshøyskolen BI.
A word from the President
The global corona pandemic made 2020 a demanding and very special year for students and staff at BI Norwegian Business School.
By being a research-based, learning-oriented and connected business school, BI shall shape individuals and business for an international, digital and sustainable future.
The pandemic led to less mobility to and from BI in the past year. BI’s ambition, nevertheless, is to take a global approach to teaching, research and business, and we place strong emphasis on providing the students with international perspectives…
BI has worked purposefully on digitalisation for several years, both with respect to our work processes and the way teaching is organised. In 2020, both had to become fully digital.
BI wants to contribute to a more sustainable development and responsible business operations in society and business both in Norway and abroad.
Board of Trustees Report
2020 turned out to be the year of the pandemic, lock-down, home office, and digital teaching.
The annual accounts have been prepared in accordance with the Norwegian Accounting Act and generally accepted accounting principles in Norway.
Research and Academic Activities
BI has a strategic goal of creating a world-class academic environment with a substantial impact on international research through publishing in recognized journals.
Programmes and students
Our students deserve excellent teaching. BI emphasizes this through a continuous focus on increased student involvement and insight, innovation of the programme portfolio and systematic pedagogical training and support.
Accreditations and rankings
BI is again ranked as the best business school in Norway, but the brand is not equally strong internationally.
Partnerships, society and business
BI is focused on strengthening, professionalising and digitalising our interaction with business, public administration and our alumni.
Organisation and employees
At the end of 2020, BI had a total of 923 employees. The total figures include 483 administrative staff and 440 faculty members.
