"Shaping the future of corporate communication in Norway"

The BI Centre for Corporate Communication (BICCC) was established in 2007 as part of BI Norwegian Business School, the leading institution for corporate communication research and education in Norway.

We focus on corporate communication as the total of communication activities of both public and private sector organizations to achieve their goals. This includes interrelated subject areas such as public relations, marketing communications, internal communication or management communication. Herein we focus on key questions such as:

  • How does corporate communication help to create value for organizations in the public and private sector?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges of new, digital, and social media for corporate communication?
  • How do corporate communication practices work in and for society?

Together with our partners, our team of researchers facilitates innovative and creative processes of discovery and understanding to shape the future of corporate communication in Norway. BICCC helps to develop innovative ideas by supporting research that matters to the profession, and by creating a national knowledge platform with access to the latest international debates.

Follow BICCC on Twitter and Linkedin and join the conversation at Corporate Communication Norway.

We thank our partners BI, DNVGL, Gassnova, and Orkla for their generous support.
