NHH launches new bachelor's program in technology and business
The Norwegian School of Economics is establishing the bachelor's programme BSc in Business, Economics and Data Science from the autumn of 2024.
The new bachelor's programme "Business, Economics and Data Science" (BEDS) was recently approved by NHH's board.
The program provides an economics education with a specialization in technology. Data analysis, programming, more advanced mathematics, applied statistics and artificial intelligence will be central subjects.
`This is a response to the need for specialist skills in working life and interest from existing and potential future students,´ says NHH's rector Øystein Thøgersen.
The programme provides admission to the Master's programme in Economics and Business Administration at NHH, like the existing Bachelor in Economics and Business Administration (BØA) does.
`The new bachelor's degree makes it possible for applicants with an additional interest in technology and mathematics to follow their professional interests and to build competence and skills related to these,´says Thøgersen.
• Teaching is given exclusively in English, and NHH will also recruit international students.
• The admission requirements for students with a Norwegian degree are the same as for the Bachelor in Economics and Business Administration, that is, a requirement for mathematics R1 or S1+S2.
• The new bachelor's programme will give admission to the Master's in Economics and Business administration. A Completed master's degree will give the title “siviløkonom”.
• Between 70 and 90 students will be admitted to the new programme.
