  1. Norwegian School of Economics

The Norwegian School of Economics or NHH, until 2011 known in English as the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration, is a business school situated in Bergen, Norway. it was founded in 1936 as Norway’s first business school and has since its establishment been a teaching and research institution primarily in the field of business administration. The School was founded to offer the first formal training in business studies in the form of a more vocational, two-year degree, called handelskandidat (“candidate of commerce”). In 1963, the handelskandidat degree was renamed siviløkonom and it later evolved into a four-year degree. The School today offers degrees at the master’s and doctoral levels. Although business administration remains the primary focus, it now also integrates economic perspectives in its research and teaching, with the emphasis on microeconomics.

NHH seeks to recruit highly qualified international students. The college wishes to attract outstanding students with an international background and give an incentive that encourages high-level academic performance. Students with an international background who have completed the first semester of a master’s degree can apply for the scholarship. in considering applications, importance will be attached to applicants’ grades, progression and motivation. The scholarship is paid out in portions after completion of the semester, and there is a presumption that the progression and grade levels are maintained as the program of study progresses.
