BI Norwegian Business School

BI Norwegian Business School is an internationally recognized not-for-profit private institution, located in Norway. Established in 1943, BI has one of Europe’s largest and most productive academic environments. Today, BI finds itself among the very few international business schools with triple crown accreditation. In 1985, BI established a network of national schools, and from the end of the 1980s, the three-year Bachelor of Management programme was available at ten BI schools. In the 1990s, BI’s relevance to business and industry was strengthened by partnerships with several large Norwegian companies as well as establishing the Master of Management for continuing education.

BI merged with a number of schools and adopted new subject fields in this way. The Norwegian School of Management – School of Marketing, Oslo Business School and Norges Varehandelshøyskole (Distributive Trades College) (2000) are some of the schools BI merged with. BI’s vision is to build the knowledge economy by empowering people and improving business. BI’s project management courses play an important role in achieving that vision.
