Our Master of Science in Business programme has been ranked among the 100 best master programmes in the world for 12 years consecutively, and our three prestigious accreditations guarantee you the highest academic quality, no matter what programme you should choose. Fewer than 1% of business schools worldwide have achieved triple accreditation, so we are in exclusive company.
BI has a long and proud history of internationalisation, and 20% of our master students are from other countries than Norway. 84% of employed international graduates would recommend BI to others. Please note that you do not need a bachelor from BI to pursue a master's degree here.
Are you still not convinced to go north and earn your degree at BI?
A master's degree can certainly accelerate your career. Master graduates’ annual earnings are on average $10,000 more than those who have a bachelor as their highest degree. However, master degrees do differ in terms of quality and so do graduates’ skills and knowledge. Here are a few more reasons why you should consider a master’s at BI:
Learn to solve real business challenges
Our connection to the business community ensures that our programmes are relevant so that our candidates become assets to their employers from day one. Through solving business cases, attending company presentations and listening to lectures by business practitioners, you will learn to apply your knowledge to real-life business situations.
This practical know-how is in high demand among employers. This is why BI candidates often get priority over those with a more purely theoretical background. In Norway, one out of four leaders are BI graduates, which proves the impact of our education. No matter which of our programmes you choose, you can rest assured that the return on the time invested will come in the form of practical skills that will help you excel in your career.
Build your academic esteem
In addition to practical skills, employers are looking for candidates with strong academic profiles. BI’s standing in the research and business community as a top institution ensures that your diploma is valued wherever you go. Our ability to balance relevant skills with research-based knowledge has set us apart from other business schools worldwide.
BI has one of Europe's most productive academic environments in Finance, Management and Marketing and many of our lecturers are at the forefront of their fields. Through introducing you to leading research and challenging you to think critically, we will help you develop a professional profile that comes with academic esteem and credibility.
