NHH Earns AACSB International Accreditation

NHH Norwegian School of Economics has earned AACSB business accreditation. `We congratulate NHH and Rector Øystein Thøgersen on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire NHH team´, said Stephanie M. Bryant at AACSB.

Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators, and businesses worldwide. 

An endorsement

AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning.

`NHH Norwegian School of Economics’ commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole, said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB.

Rector Øystein Thøgersen is honored to be awarded accreditation from the most prestigious business school accrediting body:

NHH has accreditation from all three major accreditation bodies: AACSB in the USA, AMBA in the United Kingdom and EQUIS in the EU. `The AASCB accreditation complements the two international accreditations NHH has from before´, said Rector Øystein Thøgersen.
