The Business programme from Nord University covers many fields within Business Administration. Few other programmes offer the equivalent qualifications and skills aimed at both the private and the public sector. Candidates are employed in the banking sector.
Successful completion of this Master degree programme qualifies graduates to apply for admission to the PhD doctoral programme at University of Nordland or at other universities in Norway or abroad.
The first year of study focuses on central subjects such as business and economic analysis, strategy, ethics and leadership, as well as methods. Teaching occurs in lectures and group work with both lesser and larger home assignments.
In the spring semester, students choose a major and minor. The major is comprised of one course in the spring semester and two courses in the autumn semester of the fifth year of study. The minor is comprised of one course in each of the same semesters.
The second year of study is comprised of courses within the major and minor areas of study. In the last semester, students work on their Master thesis.
Major and minor offers will vary from year to year in accordance with student interest and faculty resources. The language of instruction is Norwegian in the first three years of study, while the final two are primarily taught in English.
