President of BI, Inge Jan Henjesand, is pleased that BI continues to improve its standing on the list of Europe’s best business schools.
- This is a result that demonstrates BI´s growing reputation and success on the international arena. In this ranking we compete with the most prestigious educational institutes in Europe. The results are important because they determine our ability to attract the best professional resources and the best students, which in turn makes us an attractive partner for cooperation in the industry and with other educational institutions, says Henjesand.
Third place in the Nordic region
BI moves up six places since last year, and is this year ranked as number three in the Nordic region, together with The Norwegian School of Economics (NHH).
- It is gratifying to share this position with our friends in Bergen. Educational institutions in Norway compete not only with each other but also with other countries. The fact that both NHH and BI climbs the list shows that Norway is becoming more attractive as a nation in terms of higher education, concludes Henjesand.
BI is ranked in three of the four FT categories this year. This includes the Executive MBA, Masters in Management and Executive Education - including customised programmes and executive education - open enrollment programmes.
FT measures business schools according to a variety of criteria, among these; alumni average salary after three years and their career progress, internationalisation of programmes, faculty and students, and customer satisfaction.
