To give students a greater opportunity to become familiar with research and earn a recognition for this, NHH has instituted a Research Distinction Track within the MSc programme.

Fulfilling the requirements will not only provide you with a particularly strong academic base for PhD-studies, but may also be useful for analytical occupations.

The Research Distinction Track is not a programme in which a "degree" (e.g. MSc) is granted. Recognition of completion of the research distinction requirements will be noted within the student's Dean's Letter and transcript, and special acknowledgement during the graduation ceremony.
