- A result like this gives us strategic room to manouvre, and enables us to strengthen our academic staff, among other things. We need competent, international professionals for our new priority areas, says president of BI Norwegian Business School, Tom Colbjørnsen.
The fund will attract international MSc and PhD students by offering scholarships, among other things.
- We are very pleased with the result. Since BI is a private foundation, and doesn’t have any owners, no profit is taken out. It is all used to improve our learning environment, says Colbjørnsen.
