BI Norwegian Business School hosts Norway's largest academic milieu within the areas of business economics and administration, marketing and management. Exchange students can choose courses from the Bachelor's program in Business Administration. The student body of this program is international, and the program is conducted entirely in English. Each semester the International Relations Office offers a basic Norwegian language course to exchange students. Though not for academic credit, these courses are a great way to immerse yourself fully in your Norwegian exchange experience.
All business courses are taught in English.
Semester 1: Late August to Late December
Semester 2: Early January to Late June

website concerning course articulation.
Housing and Meals
BI Norwegian Business School has no dormitories on campus, but will assist all students in finding accommodation. Two SDSU students are eligible to receive a housing stipend each semester to help cover the cost of housing.
There are two student dormitory villages near campus that the school recommends, as private apartments are expensive and can be difficult to find. Both of these villages offer apartment-style living and a chance to live and socialize with both Norwegian and international students. Rent varies depending on accommodations, but usually ranges from $320-$650/month.
All SDSU students will be automatically enrolled in the appropriate international health insurance for their study abroad term. The insurance charge will appear on your student account services billing shortly before departure. Students will receive more detailed instructions regarding insurance before departure.
