“It’s really useful to be able to compare our programmes again to global peers on such a comprehensive and recognized master ranking after a year with incomplete results due to the pandemic. I’m happy to see that BI’s MSc in Business is still considered among the 100 best international master programmes, at the same time as this year’s result gives motivation to the organization to continue the important task of being able to offer students the best possible education,” says Inge Jan Henjesand, President at BI Norwegian Business School.BI’s MSc in Business ranks as number 92 in 2021, down from 88 in 2019 and 87 in 2018. The Financial Times first ranked BI’s master program in Business in 2008.

Salary remains the most important criteria in this year’s ranking with a total weight of 30 percent. The current average salary of alumni has the highest weighting, at 20 per cent while salary increase is the second most important with a weighting of 10 per cent.
