For staff and invited

International staff week

BI Norwegian Business School is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2018 and we would like to include our international partners in the celebration.

For this occasion, The International Office will be organizing an International Staff Week from April 17th to 20th.

Take this as an opportunity to see Oslo, network with colleagues from other schools and perhaps bring home new ideas and inspiration.

The International Staff Week will be packed with presentations, discussions and a social programme. We will have presentations from faculty members for professional input and share our experiences and best practices.

The three-day programme is suitable for professionals who work in International Offices/ departments dealing with international affairs and mobility.

The programme will also provide an opportunity to see BI Norwegian Business School and meet its staff. In addition, it gives you the opportunity to share best practices and ideas with likeminded colleagues from all over the world.

Please note that participants cover travel and accommodation costs themselves, as well as a fee of 180 Euro. The fee covers lunches and social activities.
