Executive Education

Executive Short Programmes

Executive Short Programmes give you essential and business relevant knowledge that you need in order to face new challenges at work – in only a few days.

Executive Short Programmes provide you with an effective update in just a few days. Dynamic learning and exchange of experience in small groups headed by BI’s top academic resources is what you have in store, as well as inspiration for innovation and tools you can start using immediately. The courses last 2-5 days and there is no exam.

Dynamic and inspiring 

Through dialogues with our top academic resources, the courses provide room for discussing all of your questions. You will also learn about practical tools that you can start to use immediately in your job. You will participate in a dynamic and inspiring learning environment where we combine lectures, reflection time, group discussions and group assignments.

Much more than a short, intensive course 

We organise the course to maximise your benefit from every single day. You will receive relevant materials in advance so you have time to prepare. Sometimes we will ask you to submit a description of challenges in your workday, so our lecturers can prepare a discussion regarding this during the course.


As a participant, you will gain access to an environment that helps you make new contacts. Through good interaction in the classroom, group lunches and the network dinner on the first or second day of the course, you will have many opportunities to get to know the lecturers and other course participants.

Who can participate? 

Executive Short Programmes are open courses with no formal admission requirements. The primary target group is leaders and specialists in the private and public sectors. You are therefore expected to have a good combination of theoretical background and practical experience.

Practical information


Prices are listed under each course. The price includes course documentation and all food and drink served during the course, including the network dinner on the first or second day of the course.

Join forces 

We know that learning increases when colleagues participate together. You can discuss and debate with each other during the course with a basis in a shared frame of reference. You will also gain a unique opportunity to exploit new knowledge and build upon this when you return to work.

Please contact us in advance for an offer if three or more people from the same workplace are planning to participate together. 


Registration takes place continuously. Registration forms can be found on the individual course websites. The number of participants varies from 15 to 30 to ensure the best possible learning experience and interaction.

You must enter your personal education and work experience profile when you register for the courses. This is to ensure our academic resources are equipped for the best possible pedagogic facilitation in relation to the participants who register for the respective courses.

Where will the course take place?

Unless otherwise indicated, the programme will take place in our Executive area at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo. For those who are not familiar with how to get to BI in Nydalen in Oslo, we recommend visiting this website.
