NORWAY'S LEADING BUSINESS SCHOOL
It makes a difference where you study. NHH is one of the best business schools in Europe and is a member of the exclusive CEMS network (www.cems.org) – the strategic alliance of 30 leading business schools, 65 multinational companies and five NGO partners. NHH aims to be an international leader in selected research areas, and our faculty are in high demand as experts in the business world, the media and society as a whole.
We welcome talented students from across the world to our master’s programmes and offer them a first-rate education – with no tuition fee.
NHH is a government-funded university and therefore charges no application or tuition fees. As a student at NHH, the only fee you are required to pay is a small semester registration fee to the Student Welfare Organization in Bergen (SiB), allowing you to benefit from their services. The amount is currently approximately NOK 800 per semester. Some applicants are obliged to document financial ability in order to be granted a residence permit to study in Norway (citizens outside the EU/EEA area and Switzerland).

STUDENT LIFE AT NHH – practical experience and lots of fun
NHH students are in general well satisfied with their studies and student life at NHH, and recent surveys show that 95 percent would recommend NHH to a friend.
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.
As an NHH student, you automatically become a member of NHHS, one of the most active student associations in Norway. Participating in one or more of the association’s activities give you a chance to make new friends, pursue your interests and gain new experiences. Taking part in the activities also gives you practical experiences and a way to develop your teamwork and leadership skills and test academic theories in real life. Relevant experiences while studying are highly valued by potential employers.
NHHS activities range from sports clubs for football, basketball and outdoor activities, to financial and entrepreneurial groups, school newspapers, a TV channel, a photography group, a dance group and several choirs.
Big student events:
The cultural festival UKEN is the largest student event in the western part of Norway. For three weeks, students organise stage shows, concerts and other events that attract thousands of visitors to the school. The NHH Symposium is Northern Europe’s largest student-run conference for the business community. Business leaders and top politicians attend the event, discussing current global issues.

Norway has a strong tradition of equality and fairness, something that has fostered a high degree of gender, economic and social equality. The United Nations ranks Norway as one of the countries with the highest quality of life.
The Norwegian system of higher education comprises all the institutions that are accredited. With the exception of some private university colleges, all higher education institutions are state-run.
Norway undoubtedly has one of the best welfare systems in the world, and as a student here you are ensured professional medical treatment no matter which part of the country you are living in.
The Norwegian economy is dominated by the development of and trade in energy and natural resources. Offshore oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, and power generation are important business areas for the country.
Bergen is a cosmopolitan city with a small-town charm and atmosphere. The city offers a wide variety of urban, culture and nature attractions. The combination of city life and nature is unique. Surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands, Bergen has an exceptional proximity to nature. It is only a short walk from the urban city life to a mountain hike up to Floyen or a boat trip to one of the islands.
