BI Norwegian Business School was first established as a night school by Finn Øien in 1943. Over the next decade, BI came to offer a two-year daytime programme approved by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund.


BI has a strong connection to the business world. In fact, one in four Norwegian business leaders graduated from BI. That is more than any other school in Norway. So if you are planning a career in Norway, chances are high that someone who understands your education will interview you.


Each researcher and student has an independent responsibility for conducting research activities within the current ethical framework.

BI as an institution is responsible for the organization of ethical research choices, i.e. the research ethical infrastructure. 

BI sets the same requirements for research ethics and scientific methodology in the examination questions at the Executive level as in our other courses. Executive students often retrieve data from their own business and / or own use. 


BI’s Career Portal gives you the opportunity to post vacant positions and promote career events in your company/organisation.


Housing services

Our three partners, SiO, Diakonhjemmet and BSN, offer affordable single rooms in student housing units across the city.

Student housing is generally the most affordable accommodation you will find in Oslo and also one of the best ways to meet new people. You can quickly build your social network and make new friends by living exactly where so many other students choose to live.

International students at BI will not receive student accommodation in Oslo if they do not submit the Pre-Application for Housing.

Library services

The library services available at BI Norwegian Business School include the main library in Oslo, the libraries at Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger campuses, as well as the digital library, which is always open!

Medical services

Our nurses can help answer any questions you have about physical or mental health - you can ask them anything. This option is usually faster and more affordable than a doctor.

Student Life

Campus life

Natural light and open spaces give the BI campus the sensation of a small village; a place where everybody can feel at home. However you prefer to study, there is a place for you.

The building is covered by a glass ceiling and comprises four blocks on seven levels. The open and transparent campus building exposes the activities in the building to the surrounding streets and public spaces. The open terraces, galleries, small nooks and quiet areas thave been created as special meeting places and to add life to the building.

Sports facilities

The Athletica Nydalen gym is located right in our campus building. This gym, operated by SiO, has a wide range of facilities and services, including personal train and group sessions.

Student clubs

InSA arranges various social activities for BI students. Join their excursions, movie nights, parties, sightseeing in Oslo and other events to get to know your fellow students.
