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.
In 2017 NHH took part in four of these sub-rankings, and was ranked as number 35 out of 95 participants in the main ranking, climbing three places from the previous year while the total number of participating schools went up from 90.
The FT ranking shows that NHH’s flagship, the Master’s in Management programme, is the highest rated master’s programme of this kind in Norway.
NHH is also Norway’s only CEMS member. FT has ranked the CEMS Master’s in International Management among the best in the world several times.
