“Future students expect more from schools than just assistance with their education. They also expect schools to help with their career, provide them with a network, and offer continuing education,” says President of BI Norwegian Business School, Tom Colbjørnsen.
“Foreign schools have come much further than Norway in this area, but BI is now setting the standard in Norway as regards international alumni focus.”
BI Norwegian Business School was one of the first Norwegian schools to form an alumni network. Currently, more than 22 000 former students are active in the network which has members in as many as 80 countries.
