LEARN A LANGUAGE - BE GLOBALLY COMPETITIVE!
Language skills give you the edge in the global competition for the best candidates.
“Future value creation requires global competitiveness. This requires relevant education of high quality, and it requires citizens and employees with international knowledge and experience.” (Norwegian government white paper on the internationalisation of education).
There is a great demand within Norwegian industry for economists with good language skills and cultural understanding. Norway’s main trading partners use the languages taught at NHH and our language modules are tailored especially for students of Business Economy.
They provide the opportunity to acquire both foreign language skills as well as a good working knowledge of the various cultural areas. An NHH degree with proven language skills will give you a solid competitive advantage if you want an exciting career and to perform well in international environments.
Knowledge acquired by taking one or more language electives will give you the opportunity to travel on exchange programmes and/or take a CEMS master degree.
To achieve approved language electives you must take a minimum of two modules within one language. There are also advanced modules which allow for further study beyond the two compulsory modules.
