The Economist: BI ranks #1 in the Nordic region.

The newspaper has ranked the 40 best ‘Masters in Management’ programmes in the world.

BI Norwegian Business School is at the 17th place.

In The Economist –  Masters in Management (MiM) 2017 rankings, BI is ranked with its Master of Science in Business programme. BI is well placed ahead of the Norwegian School of Economics –  NHH (26th place) and Copenhagen Business School –  CBS (31st place).

I talked this morning with Debbie Harrison, Associate Dean for this program. Check out what she said about the importance of this ranking!

The participating schools are ranked based on various criteria related to faculty, students, alumni and statistics from BI, which includes job offerings within three months of graduation, salary, and how students and alumni rank the school facilities and other services.

This ranking motivates us to continue working in a targeted way to further strengthen our international position in the years to come. This is of great importance to BI’s appeal to the best national and international professors, students and businesses.

Some Facts:

  • This is the first time The Economist ranks MiM programmes, i.e. generalist master programmes. The Economist has since 2011 had a ranking of the world’s best MBA programmes.
  • The data for the rankings is collected from 2-year students in the MSc in Business programme, and graduated alumni from the previous year.
  • The number of Faculty with Ph.D who teach in the MSc programme is important for the rankings.
