It is expected around fifty students to attend the course that starts on the 27th of June and lasts for three weeks.
19 nationalities are represented amongst the students that have accepted their offer on the course. This year the programme has been promoted as a part of the BI Student Exchange Programme. Nominated students from partner universities can in this way attend the course free of charge. In return BI get to send more of its students on semester exchange. This has led to an increase in students from European and American universities compared to previous years when the majority of the group has been made up of Asian students. There is however also an increase in students applying from non-partner institutions.
Scandinavian management seems to be a topic international students are eager to learn more about. Scandinavian management is famous for its flat structure, exceptional strength in ethics, social responsibility, environment, health, and accounting.
Included in the course is also a company visit to a major Norwegian corporation and a couple of other guest lectures. This puts the academic theory of the course into practice through real life scenarios.
The BI Summer Programme students also have the option of taking the Norwegian Life and Society course at the University of Oslo’s International Summer School.
An extensive social agenda is offered to the participants – including sightseeing, BBQ, hiking, Norwegian film programme and more.
