Still on the top 50 list

6 October 2009

Every year the Financial Times ranks the fifty best Masters in Management programmes. These programmes are full-time and do not require work experience. The ranking primarily includes programmes in Europe, but this year several other continents entered the competition.

President Tom ColbjørnsenBI’s entry, the MSc in Business and Economics, reached the 48th place this year, just as it did last year. Tom Colbjørnsen, President of BI Norwegian School of Management, is very satisfied with the result.  

”I am pleased that we have consolidated our position among the fifty best programmes in Europe. This is particularly gratifying when we take into account the expansion of the competition since last year, and the fact that several reputable schools have made the list,” says President Colbjørnsen.
