Hi I'm considering going to b-school in Norway and I came across this: http://www.businessbecause.com/why-i-ch ... gement.htm

I've heard many great things about the school and that it has a killer set of Masters programs. Would be great to get your feedback about the school! Cheers

Having a good deal of experience in a Scandinavian Shipping firm, I know for a fact that BI delivers world class management education. But it makes it really hard to get a job there without knowing Norse/ Danish/ Swedish etc

Hi,

I'm Norwegian, and have actually taken a course at BI (Norwegian School of Management). They have not done well in rankings recently (placed 70 out of 75 total European business schools in the recent FT ranking), and have closed their full time MBA program. In Norway NHH (Norwegian School of Economics) in Bergen has the best reputation, but it is not world class either (ranked 44 in Europe). Both BI and NHH only have Executive MBA programs (in addition to the Master of Science).

I would advice to study outside of Norway if you are competitive. It's pretty easy to get a job in Norway if you are qualified without knowing Norwegian as everybody understands English.

Yeah I think BI had a Masters in management / Management in Entrepreneurship which was always more valued than their MBA.
