The forces of globalisation and internationalisation have brought people, businesses and markets across the world closer together than ever before.

International Business at NHH is a specialised programme designed to equip students with the right mix of analytical and practical skills for a career within multinational companies, international organisations or smaller firms whose activities involve a substantial degree of international business. The programme provides you with the right balance between theoretical education and praxis-oriented case studies and interactions with the business community.
