Among Europe’s Best

Among Europe’s Best

International competition keeps us on our toes and helps us improve. NHH has been on the Financial Times’ list of Europe’s best business schools since 2005.

The Financial Times Ranking

The Financial Times (FT) conducts five annual sub-rankings of different study programmes offered at European business schools. At the end of the year, the sub-rankings are combined into a main ranking, the European Business Schools ranking. It is up to the institutions to choose which study programmes to submit.

Our Flagships

The FT ranking has consistently shown that NHH’s flagship, the Master’s in Management programme, is the highest rated master’s programme of this kind in Norway.
