Business and Alumni


Our specialised BI Corporate department offers executive programmes ranging from one-day sessions to full in-house Master’s degrees. Our aim is to bridge the gap between research and business practice, and to provide academic insight and practical methods for crafting and executing strategies.

BI is the largest provider of tailor-made education for businesses and organisations in Norway, in both the public and private sectors. Our tailor-made programmes are based on three ground principles:

  • Link the manager's competence to the firm's organizational challenges and strategic direction.
  • Strive that the programmes lead to change of behavior and results in the firm.
  • Design the programmes in interaction with the individual firms.

Education should fit the client, not the other way around. This is a core value for us. We don’t believe in ready-made, one-size-fits-all courses, or that our models fit every challenge. Instead, we tailor-make a programme that combines current research and pedagogic expertise with the client’s unique needs, assembling a team that is specially suited for the task at hand.

BI fields of expertise

An important part of designing a tailor-made programme, is finding the academic resources that will best suit your needs. Fortunately, we are able to cover most needs, as BI hosts Norway’s largest and one of Europe’s most productive academic environments in the area of business economics, management and marketing.

Tailor-made programmes are run by highly skilled academics from our eight research departments:
