WELCOME Week

To help make sure you get off to the best possible start, the student association (NHHS) and NHH organise a Welcome Week at the start of your first semester. During Welcome Week there are events night and day, giving you great opportunities to get to know your fellow students, the School and the wonderful city of Bergen. All new students are placed in groups with older students as mentors/hosts.

nhh's alumni network

After graduation you will be invited to join the NHH Alumni network – a social and academic network for all previous NHH students. It makes it easy to keep in touch with friends and fellow alumni, and keep up to date with relevant information about conferences, seminars and social events.
