NHH NOT LISTED ON ONE PART OF THE FINANCIAL TIMES RANKING

Norwegian School of Economics is one of the prestigious educational institutions that is not listed on the Masters in Management ranking by Financial Times. The reason is too low response rate in the alumni survey. Will work strategically to increase response rate, says Rector.

Monday 28 September the Financial Times announced its annual ranking of the 90 best master degrees in business and administration worldwide. NHH is not among the schools listed this year.

The reason why NHH was not listed in this year’s part ranking, is low response rate on the survey that have been sent to the NHH alumns that graduated three years ago. The response rate was only 13 percent and FT requires a minimum response rate at 20 percent.

The Masters in Management ranking is based on two underlying surveys. One survey requires information from the institution itself and the other is directed towards alumni with questions about career- and salary development.

NHH HAS HIGH AMBITIONS

NHH has been part of the prestigious Financial Times ranking since 2005. The NHH Master has always been ranked as the best programme in Norway, last time in 2019.

‘We will work strategically to increase the response rate among our alumni. The FT rankings are very important for NHH, and naturally we are sorry that NHH was not listed on the Masters in Management ranking. Our target, as it always has been, is to climb and be recognized among the top educational institutions in the world,’ says Rector Øystein Thøgersen.

NHH has Norway’s best master's degree according to FT ranking

The master's degree programme at NHH is the best in Norway and ranks as number 70 in the world, according to a new ranking. Master's degree student Lisa Naustdal, who has specialised in finance, has already secured a job at McKinsey.
