Study Abroad

As an International Business Masters student you can spend an additional semester studying abroad at one of our many partner institutions. This is a great way to enhance your CV and to build upon your international experience.

Double Degree with Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), Bergen

MSc International Business students also have the opportunity to apply for the double Masters degree at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) in Bergen.

NHH is a top European Business School with EQUIS accreditation. It is also a member of CEMS (the Global Alliance in Management Education) and PIM (Partnership in International Management). NHH has a faculty of high standing in the international research community and over 3,000 students. MSc International Business students can progress to NHH after completing their degree and take a second MSc degree in Economics and Business Administration in one of eight areas of specialisation.

  • Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment
  • Financial Economics
  • Business Analysis and Performance Management
  • Strategy and Management
  • International Business
  • Economic Analysis
  • Economics
  • Marketing and Brand Management

Double degree students take four modules in their first semester at NHH (mid-August to December) from those available in their chosen major and a further module in the second semester (January to June) along with a complete NHH dissertation. There are no additional fees for taking the Double Degree although students must be able to demonstrate that they can cover their living costs during their time in Norway.

The academic year at NHH runs from mid-August to the following June. Double degree students are therefore expected to complete their MNGT575 dissertations in advance of the beginning of the first semester at NHH.

Selection for the Lancaster MSc International Business – NHH Double Degree is based upon achieving an average of at least 65 per cent for the Michaelmas Term modules at Lancaster, a personal statement and a supportive letter of recommendation from the MSc International Business Programme.
