BI Norwegian Business School has retained its place among the world’s 65 best business schools in the Financial Times ranking of customised competence and management development programmes. This year, BI has been ranked as number 29 among European universities and business schools.

“BI Norwegian Business School is a Norwegian school with international ambitions. Our long-term goal is to rise higher on the Financial Times list,” says Tom Colbjørnsen, President of BI Norwegian Business School. ”We want to concentrate on being a business school. Our efforts to strengthen our academic resources will continue, and we shall focus even more on economic and management-oriented subjects. BI’s special profile will continue to be a combination of professional clout and relevance to business and industry.”

About the ranking – the Financial Times’ Custom Programme Education

The Financial Times ranking of customised company-internal programmes is partly based on what the assigning companies see as the benefit of the programmes for their own organisations (“value for money” and “future use”).  In addition, the Financial Times has assessed the course participants’ management level. The programmes for top managers are ranked higher than those for intermediate managers and discipline specialists. The Financial Times also emphasises the school’s international profile in the actual programme implementation.

A total of 65 educational institutions have succeeded in securing a place on the list of the world’s leading business schools.
