Norwegian School of Economics
The Norwegian School of Economics (Norwegian: Norges Handelshøyskole) or NHH is a business school situated in Bergen, Norway. Opened in 1936 by King Haakon VII, it is Norway’s oldest business school and has since its foundation been a leading Norwegian teaching and research institution in the fields of economics and business administration. The school celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2011.
NHH has a strong international orientation. The school participates in exchange programs with more than 130 foreign institutions in over 30 countries, and around 40 percent of the school’s students spend at least one semester on exchange. The school is member of CEMS (The Global Alliance for Management Education) and the Partnership in International Management (PIM) network, and is accredited by EQUIS.
Admission to NHH is the most selective in its field in Norway. For seven years in a row (2007–13), the NHH undergraduate programme received more applications than any other undergraduate study programme in Norway, and around 10,8% of applicants are admitted annually. In 2016, NHH received 4343 applications for 470 spots in its undergraduate program.
