High ranking for NHH study programme

The international master's programme CEMS, which NHH offers together with 28 other leading business schools, comes in fourth place in the new Financial Times ranking of the world's best master's programmes.

That is one place up from last year. Deputy Rector Sunniva Whittaker is delighted with the result.

"NHH is very proud to be part of this unique master's programme, which targets students who want to pursue an international career", she says. 

Among other things, the students must complete an internship with a foreign company and take one semester at one of the other CEMS schools.

"We now see increasing interest in taking this programme, also among Norwegian students. The programme's international focus, close links with the business community and the global CEMS network make it extremely attractive", says Whittaker.

The CEMS programme has been developed in collaboration with big multinational companies such as ABB, Google, HSBC, Statoil and Statkraft.

"This ensures that the programme content matches the competence needs of business and industry as closely as possible," says Whittaker, who would like to see more Norwegian companies on the list of CEMS partners.

The master's programme in economics and business administration came in 64th place in this year's ranking. That is down four places from last year.

A small, exclusive master's programme at one of NHH's CEMS partners, the University of St. Gallen, tops the list. The programme has been ranked in first place several years running.
