One of the many reasons I love my job is because I get to live vicariously through my students as they find out about all kinds of opportunities that are out there in the world. For example, did you know that you can go to study in English at one of Europe’s top business schools for about the same tuition cost as earning a business degree at a Canadian university (and it’s even less than at some of our business schools)? Even for international students, tuition is only about $11,000 per year, and it’s only three years. Now, the cost of living in Norway is reportedly a bit higher than in Canada, not to mention the cost of flying to and from Oslo, but think of the Scandinavian adventures you could have while getting a degree!
BI Norweigan Business School holds the “triple crown” of international accreditation for business schools, something few universities can say, and it is a three year Bachelor of Business Administration offered entirely in English. The three specializations offered are Finance, Shipping Management, and International Business but everyone does a common set of courses in the first two years and works on their specialization in the third year. They admitted 118 students to the program last year from 57 different nationalities; internationalism and connections to industry are areas of focus for the Faculty and the program. BC high school graduates are evaluated on the strength of their grade 12 academic courses but there are no specific pre-requisites.
And you get to live in Norway where you would actually have a reason to wear a laplander toque.
