NHH is located in the beautiful city of Bergen on the west coast of Norway. Norway differs slightly from its others counterparts as it was largely a country of farmers and fishermen until the early 20th century. Today Norway has one of the most developed economies in the world, a transformation that has left a deep imprint on Norwegian society. A strong tradition of equality and fairness has fostered a high degree of gender, economic and social equality. Founded in 1070, Bergen grew around its colourful harbour and has since been a hub of commerce, seafaring and craftmanship. Located between mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the city has always looked outwards towards overseas opportunities. Bergen's rich historical legacy is contrasted by a modern city filled with bars, cafés, restaurants and night clubs, and a very active music scene. At the same time piqturesque fjords, valleys and towering mountains create a magnificent backdrop to Western Norway.


Students who choose to study at NHH can look forward to a stimulating learning experience at a dynamic internationally oriented school with high quality staff and students.

Business challenges in a changing environment 

 

The Master in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) is one of the specialisations within the two-year Master of Science (MSc) programme in Economics and Business Administration at NHH.

 

The prosperity of both current and future societies is utterly dependent upon having secure access to reliable sources of energy and natural resources. Whilst there are often significant technical barriers to overcome in finding, extracting and transforming these resources into useful products for human consumption, the ability to do so effectively may ultimately be determined within economic and business constraints. To complicate matters, exploitation of resources for human consumption will always entail some impact on the environment. With concerns over ecosystems and the global climate becoming more pronounced, the balance between economic development and preserving the natural environment is increasingly a critical factor in a world defined by more than just the bottom line. With these thoughts in mind, and aiming to build on proven capacities in relevant fields, NHH established the MSc specialisation in Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment in 2008.... [-]
