Double Masters with NHH

This double Masters degree with NHH in Bergen, one of Norway's leading business schools, gives students on two of our Masters the chance to enhance their CV by adding a second degree to the one they acquire from LUMS.

The expertise within NHH makes this an especially attractive opportunity for those interested in environmental management or the oil and gas industries, although there are plenty of other specialisms that you can follow.

The programme is open to high-achieving students from the following programmes:

International Business & Strategy MSc

Management MSc

Double-degree students begin their study at NHH immediately after completing their Lancaster degree, and take a second MSc in Economics and Business Administration in one of six areas of specialisation:

  • Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment
  • Finance
  • Strategy and Management
  • International Business
  • Economics
  • Marketing and Brand Management

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 more than 3,000 students.

Timings and practical details

As a double-degree student you take four modules in your first semester at NHH (mid-August to December) from those available in your chosen specialisation, and a further module in the second semester (January to June). You also complete an NHH dissertation.

There are no additional fees for taking this second Masters, although you must be able to demonstrate that you can cover your living costs during your time in Norway.

The academic year at NHH runs from mid-August to the following June. You are therefore expected to complete your dissertation at LUMS before starting the first semester at NHH.

Those wanting to apply for this scheme do so in the second term at LUMS. Selection for places on this double Masters is highly competitive, and anyone interested in applying will need to have achieved an average of at least 65% in their first-term modules at Lancaster. You will also need to write a personal statement outlining why you would be a good candidate, and supply a supportive letter of recommendation from the programme team for your LUMS Masters.
