BI graduates quickly land jobs

The annual job market survey shows a promising outlook for recent BI graduates.

2020 Job Market Survey

Each year BI graduates are invited to complete the Job Market Survey upon finishing their education. The survey covers their progression into the job market and asks how they perceive their education at BI. 

The responses from our international students who graduated in 2019 show that a degree from BI can make you an attractive candidate in the job market both in Norway and abroad.

  • 80% of international graduates are satisfied with the job they secured

    We know that getting the job you aspire to have is the main reason for getting an education. That our alumni are happy with their jobs is the best confirmation we can get of that we are doing something right.

  • 72% of international graduates chose to work in Norway

    Many of our international students come for the adventure, but end up staying for the job possibilities, benefits and Scandinavian work-life balance. Did you know that Norway is the second happiest country in the world?

  • 84% of employed international graduates would recommend BI

    Nothing make us happier than when our students are happy. At BI, you will meet academics and professionals who go the extra mile for you to succeed. Career and student counselling are just some of the things we do better than the rest.

  • 85% of international graduates employed within 6 months of graduation

    Through initiatives such as internships, consultancy assignments and case competitions, our students gain early relevant experience that makes them attractive candidates.
