  • Apply Online: Complete the online application form.
  • Upload official university/college transcripts and diplomas: Submit official copies of transcripts and diplomas for studies outside of BI Norwegian Business School. This includes transcripts of grades for exchange or study abroad semesters. 

Grades and diplomas obtained at BI Norwegian Business School are available to the MSc Admission Team so you do not need to upload these. You do, however, have to upload transcripts from exchange semesters.

Explain your dreams and ambitions, and how they relate to your choice of MSc programme at BI Norwegian Business School. Why do you want to take this master’s programme, what have you done in your life that will prepare you for this master’s degree, and how will the MSc programme help you achieve your career and personal goals?

    The Admission Committee may also consider international experience (eg. semesters or study abroad), your experience outside the classroom (eg. extra-curricular and volunteer activities), or your motivation to learn and improve (eg. did you do better in your final year of studies than you did in your first year) in addition to your academic record. Use this opportunity to convince the committee you have the ability to succeed in a demanding master’s programme.

    The letter, written in English, should not exceed one page.
