Has the most popular study programme in Norway
‘Our applicants know that we offer a future-oriented education,’ says NHH Rector Øystein Thøgersen. He is looking forward to the start of the semester in August.
Norwegian School of Economics attracts many well qualified students every year. Last year the school obtained another top listing when 2 221 applicants had the Siviløkonom programme (Bachelor and Master) at NHH as their number one priority. NHH had thus yet again the most popular education in Norway.
Last year the required score in the ordinary application quota also continued to rise. The required score rose from 57,8 in 2020 to 58,3. For applicants coming directly from high school the required score was 54,5 points.
Rector Øystein Thøgersen is looking forward to welcoming new students in the autumn. He believes that the number of applicants will remain high also this year.
‘It has always been a fierce competition for being admitted to NHH, and the interest in business studies has increased in recent years. Our applicants know that we offer a future-oriented education, and that our candidates are popular in several industries both in Norway and abroad,’ says Thøgersen.
