NHH's Innovation School is a programme for master students who are curious about innovation. The programme combines a modern academic study programme with a study trip and an internship in Germany.

Application deadline: 15. October – You can apply via SøknadsWeb, starting 1. October


The programme educates students on how to facilitate innovation within an organization. That starts with the process of idea generation, extends to questions of organizing and financing innovation, and ends with different ways of profiting from it. The teaching portfolio is further strengthened with workshops developing soft skills, focusing on career and personal and professional development.
