NHH STUDENTS ARE SATISFIED WITH THEIR STUDIES
The latest study Barometer survey shows that NHH scores particularly well when it comes to relevance to working life. ‘Our students are among the most satisfied in Norway,’ says Vice Rector Stig Tenold.
On Thursday 16 February, NOKUT released the results of the national Studiebarometeret 2022 survey, commissioned by the Ministry of Education and Research. The survey, which was conducted last autumn, measures how satisfied Norwegian students are with their study programmes and social life.
The master’s degree students in the Economics and Business Administration programme give their overall satisfaction a score of 4.1 points. That is 0.3 points higher than the national average.
In answer to the same question, the bachelor's students gave a score of 3.9 points. Overall satisfaction measures how satisfied students are with their study programme in general.
‘At NHH, we endeavour to ensure that our students are attractive to the labour market, so I’m pleased to see that we achieve such a high score when it comes to relevance to working life. At the same time, the survey shows that our students are among the most satisfied and hard-working in Norway,’ says Stig Tenold, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs.
INVESTING A LOT OF EFFORT
NHH students are generally satisfied with their own efforts. To the question about whether they work hard, the master's students give a score of 4.2 points. They award a score of 4.1 points when asked if they are motivated in their studies. That is 0.4 points higher than the national average. In answer to the same question, the bachelor’s degree students give a score of 3.9 points.
Bachelor’s degree student Hermine Øye-Forbregd (20) has the following to say about the results:
‘It’s not surprising. We put in a lot of effort in order to succeed and having interested fellow students motivates me to work hard.’
MEETING THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY
As in previous years, NHH excels in several questions about relevance to working life. The master's students give 4.2 points when asked whether they feel that representatives from the business community contribute to teaching.
In answer to the same question, the bachelor's students gave a score of 4 points. These scores are 1.2 points and 1 point higher than the national average, respectively. Both the bachelor’s and master’s degree students feel that they are given good information about which occupations/sectors are relevant to them, and give a higher score than the rest of the country. The master’s degree students give a score of 3.9 points, while the bachelor’s degree students give 4 points.
SATISFIED WITH THE SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT
The study barometer also shows that NHH students are satisfied with the social environment among students. In answer to this question, the bachelor's and master's students gave a score of 3.9 points, which is 0.3 points higher than the national average.
The survey also shows that students would like more feedback on their work from the academic staff, more academic discussions with and counselling from staff, and to participate more actively in learning activities.
‘We are well aware of the areas in which we score relatively low and we are making active efforts to improve. This is a key topic in our action plans for both bachelor’s and master’s programmes,’ says Vice Rector Stig Tenold.
