BI Norwegian Business School is one the largest business schools in Europe, ranked as number one in Norway and are among the top 1 % that have the three most important international accreditations: EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA.
Faculty and research
BI's researchers contribute with research at the top international level. This contributes to new knowledge that provides better decisions, smarter ways of doing things, as well as new products and services.
Research and teaching at BI Norwegian Business School is organised under nine departments covering the range of business school disciplines:
Department of Accounting and Operations Management
Department of Communication and Culture
Department of Data Science and Analytics
Department of Law and Governance
Department of Leadership and Organizational Behaviour
Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship
BI Norwegian Business School has also formed research centers for specific fields of expertise. These research centers gather groups of world-leading researchers to continuously deliver excellent research through the study of a clearly defined theory, phenomenon or context.
Three accreditations are especially important for a business school with international ambitions: the European EQUIS (European Quality Improvement Systems), the American AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and the British AMBA (The Association of MBAs). Schools that achieve all three of these accreditations are called Triple Crown Schools, and they are in a class of their own among international business schools. Less than 1 % of business schools worldwide have achieved triple accreditation. The accreditations are proof of BI's rigorous standards.
BI also achieves good results in the most reputable rankings of business schools, such as Financial Times Ranking and Eduniversals Top Business Schools Worldwide. The last five years BI have been among the twenty best in Europe. Ranking differs from accreditation in that the institution is measured against the other participant schools based on a set of criteria. These criteria are related to characteristics of the alumni, the programme and the institution.
