Our mission

We fulfil our mission to shape people and business for an international, digital and sustainable future by striving for top academic quality and shaping attractive careers and companies through internationally recognised research, outstanding education and in interaction with business and society.

A culture for quality

All activity related to quality in programme development and management must be characterised by openness, commitment, inclusion and documentation, aiming to increase quality standards and ensure actual participation and co-production of quality.

Our core values

We are unconditionally committed to our student’s success
Our teaching must be centred around the students' learning to deliver excellent education. The students are involved in developing our research, programmes, teaching and learning environment.

We honour and promote academic values
We promote academic values, integrity and freedom, and responsible research evaluation. We advance international research through international recruitment, cooperation, publications in prestigious journals and relevant externally funded research.

We cultivate a culture of innovation
We collaborate for academic excellence and cultivate a culture of innovation and improvement. We add value for students, businesses, and society.

We act responsibly
We act with responsibility, respect and ethical awareness. We contribute to sustainable development in alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). We integrate these goals and principles into our research, teaching, operations and collaboration.

We act with collegiality
We contribute to an inclusive, transparent, honest and friendly working environment where curiosity and interest in each other are valued. We respect our colleagues' time, contribution and opinions. There should be room for both cooperation and autonomy.

Strategic priorities

Attractive programmes and talented candidates
At BI, we build attractiveness throughout the entire educational process, from admission to post-graduation. We are committed to creating flexible learning paths adapted to students' needs and ambitions through different life stages and for lifelong learning. Our study programmes aim to shape our students' development of the necessary social, ethical and sustainable awareness to become valuable citizens.

Outstanding research and teaching
BI will develop cutting-edge research that can be channelled into our study programmes and impact society. We will continue to recruit and retain excellent faculty who promote international research that addresses key challenges facing our society through top publications and relevant externally funded research. We will also implement teaching practices that strengthen our students' learning outcomes and provide inspiring learning experiences.

Being connected to society and business (connectedness)
BI recognise the role organisations and businesses from the academic, private and public spheres have in research, education and value creation. To further develop and institutionalise connectedness across BI, we will involve and collaborate with academics, students, investors, authorities, and companies to support, create and develop entrepreneurial initiatives and our teaching offer.

Operational excellence
BI will promote a culture of innovation and excellence in performance by focusing on diversity, inclusion, cooperation and supportive leadership practices. We will offer high-quality services and increase operational efficiency through digitisation and enhanced interaction. Development of our campuses and activities will support our ambitions linked to international climate and environmental goals.
