About

With this as a basis, the profile of the Strategy and Management offered by the NHH Norwegian School of Economics focuses on two sets of fundamental questions that illuminate this overarching theme in different ways:   

What creates differences in performance between businesses and industries and why do such differences persist over time, and how can firms use this knowledge to create effective strategies?

How can firms—through leading and developing individuals, groups, and organisations—implement strategies or carry out complex change processes?

Subject areas

    The Strategy and Management programme comprises two different areas of expertise/themes, "Strategic Analysis" and "Organisation and Leadership".

  • The Strategic Analysis theme examines theories, mechanisms, and practical frameworks that can be used to understand why differences in performance both between and within markets can arise, how and why such differences can persist over time, and how this affects strategic decisions in companies.
  • The Organisation and Leadership theme examines the business itself, with a focus on the challenges business leaders meet when they plan to implement or deploy strategies, how one should lead and develop the business’s human resources, and how one can carry out complex organisational changes.
