BI Norwegian Business School is ranked number 35 out of 90 on the Financial Times European Business School Rankings 2016. Over the last five years BI has climbed 27 places on the list.

President of BI Norwegian Business School, Inge Jan Henjesand.

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 in 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 Copenhagen Business School (CBS).

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 alumni and school criteria.  

– Being placed as number 1 in Norway and third in the Nordic region gives the organisation extra motivation in our work in achieving our high ambitions. This ranking, together with the three most prestigious accreditations a business school can have, makes us better both internationally and nationally, Henjesand concludes.
