The MSc program in business administration ranks among the most recognized studies in the country, and offers broad-ranging career opportunities both in Norway and abroad.
Students at the MSc program in Business Administration apply for the specialization profile (major) that includes four courses and the master thesis. To establish a common point of departure in terms of mindset and methodology, the first semester is devoted to three common courses offered to all students on the program.
Semester two continues with specialization courses for each of the profiles: Economics, Applied Finance, Strategic Innovation Management, and Strategic Marketing and Analysis, and Leadership in a Digital Economy. Flexibility is introduced in semester three, when all students are free to pursue elective courses or international exchange, and a minimum of one course has to be outside of the major. In the fourth and final semester, students are expected to devote themselves to research and writing for their MSc thesis.
The MSc program in business administration offers wide-ranging career opportunities in business, industry, government, and professional organisations, with prospects in terms of both leadership and professional expert careers. Examples of job content include economic research, fund management, investment analysis, corporate finance, energy and environmental analyses, system design for incentivized motivation, brand building and strategic marketing, innovation strategy and policy formation.
