The Master in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment is one of the specialisations within the two-year Master of Science (MSc) programme in Economics and Business Administration at NHH. After finishing the programme you will be awarded the title MSc in Economics and Business Administration.
The Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment programme consists of twelve courses and a thesis. Students select six courses that relate directly to the Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment specialisation, and the remaining six are elective courses. Four of these elective courses can be combined to make a minor specialisation. The programme is wholly taught in English.
All MSc students at NHH are encouraged to take at least one semester on exchange at another leading business school elsewhere in the world. Through membership of CEMS (Community of European Management Schools) and PIM (Partnership in International Management) and through bilateral agreements, NHH has exchange partnerships with some of the leading institutions for economics and business administration in the world.
MSc students at NHH can also combine their studies with the CEMS Master's in International Management programme, and qualify with two internationally recognised qualifications. Similarly, NHH offers a Double Degree programme with selected partner schools.
NHH graduates are highly sought after in the labour market. In addition to their own efforts, students are supported by the students welfare association (SiB), the student organisation (NHHS) and the school when preparing and searching for career opportunities.
Our most recent surveys indicate that the unemployment rate for NHH graduates in 2009 was less than 5% six months after graduation, and average graduate salary ranks amongst the best for masters programmes in Europe. Furthermore, these surveys show particular success among NHH’s international students with respondents obtaining an average annual salary in excess of €50,000 (excluding bonuses).
In Norway the best education is free. The core Norwegian cultural values of fairness and equality combined with the benefit of the wealth provided by North Sea oil has led to the state in Norway funding a high quality higher education sector. A result of this distinctly Norwegian funding arrangement is that demand for places is high. As resources are not limitless, high admission standards ensure that although the best is free in Norway, only the best students get in.
Competition for admission to NHH is extremely tough, with only 1 in 5 applicants being offered a place to study Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment at NHH, and the students who are admitted must have excellent academic qualifications.
