More international students at BI

30 March 2011

More and more international students choose to do an Executive MBA at BI Norwegian Business School. On some programmes, almost 70 percent of students are international.

- We want more managers and companies to choose BI as their learning partner,” says president of BI Norwegian Business School, Tom Colbjørnsen.

- We especially want to create learning arenas where practical people and professors can achieve new insights through playing out their ideas in an international environment. The teaching is based on international research and practical experience, and we make the expertise available to students at different stages of life. The increase in international students at EMBA shows we’re on the right track.

Three EMBA programmes started on 21 March and will run for 18 months.

  • General Executive MBA in cooperation with Berkeley in San Fransisco, the Nanyang Business School in Singapore and the Instituto Empresa in Madrid
  • Executive MBA in Energy in cooperation with the French Institute of Petroleum (IFP) and the Nanyang Business School in Singapore
  • Executive MBA in Shipping, Offshore and Finance in cooperation with the Nanyang Business School in Singapore

All the programmes have a large percentage of international students. On the EMBA in Shipping, Offshore and Finance, 12 of 18 students are international, and on the EMBA in Energy, almost half the participants are foreign nationals. A total of 69 students are taking part in the programmes.

In addition, BI offers a part-time MBA in China in cooperation with Fudan University and an Executive Master of Management in Energy in cooperation with IFP in Paris.
