"NHH gave me a great opportunity to pursue a PhD"

NHH's financial support allowed me to fully focus on my research. It also allowed me to visit academic departments abroad which made me a better researcher.

NHH gave me a great opportunity to pursue a PhD in economics. Its financial support allowed me to concentrate fully on my research. The department is very research-focused and is very well resourced.

Graduate students are generously supported and are encouraged to play a full role in Department activities. The Department has a very international orientation, with many foreign visitors.

Students are actively encouraged to spend time at foreign institutions. In my own case this allowed me to spend time at UCL as part of my NHH program, which led in particular to a joint paper with my supervisors at NHH and UCL.
