Engage Modules

Together with our partners in the Engage.EU alliance, NHH will start to offer one Engage Module for master's students in the autumn semester 2022. The module will consist of four courses during the autumn semester 2022 and the spring semester 2023. Students may take two courses within the Module to obtain a total of 15 ECTS. Students from any Engage alliance university can apply for the complete module or any of the four courses individually.

If you are an outgoing student from NHH, you will find information on how to apply on this website.

Application deadline: 1 July 2022

Academic Programme

This module combines courses that will help shed light on some of the main challenges in modern economies. How can the corporate sector redesign their business models to encompass sustainability challenges?  What is the role of the financial sector in achieving this? How must established companies change their business model? Which roles can new and innovative companies play?  And how can we develop business models that help achieve both sustainability and profitability goals?

Through the four courses in this module, these questions are illuminated in various ways and with different emphases.  By taking two out of these four courses, students will gain broad insights and skills about these questions. Students are free to take three or more courses. Module certificate will be awarded to students who successfully complete at least two courses.

If you - at a later point - wish to take the full Module, you can incorporate courses taken as OEI courses, as long as they are also module courses. Please apply only to the Module if you already know you wish to take all module courses.
