Record percentage of women for 2023 EMBA class

9 March 2023

BI’s Executive Master of Business Administration has 44 percent women for the class of 2023-2024. This is the highest proportion in the history of the programme.

President of BI Karen Spens earlier this week welcomed a new EMBA class to BI Norwegian Business School. BI’s Executive MBA is aimed at ambitious professionals who want to develop their leadership skills and take the next step in their careers.

“Women remain underrepresented in business and leadership positions. Business schools play a crucial role in closing the gender gap, and we must do everything we can to give women the skills, confidence, and opportunity to rise to the top. At BI we have around 45 percent women on our fulltime programmes. This shows we are making great progress also when it comes to our Executive MBA,” says Spens.

Over the past years the proportion of women taking the programme has steadily increased from around 30 percent in 2019 and is now approaching 50 percent.

The programme is ranked number 46 in the world by the Financial Times. It lasts 18 months, and students can choose to specialize in either global leadership, digitalization, or sustainability.
