The study of strategy is fundamentally about understanding why some businesses succeed while others do not.
With this as a basis, the Strategy and Management (STR) major focuses on two sets of fundamental questions that illuminate this overarching theme in different ways:
- What creates differences in performance between businesses and industries and why do such differences persist over time, and how can firms use this knowledge to create effective strategies?
- How can firms—through leading and developing individuals, groups, and organisations—implement strategies or carry out complex change processes?
The STR major comprises two different areas of expertise/themes, “Strategic Analysis” and “Organisation and Leadership”.
- The Strategic Analysis theme examines theories, mechanisms, and practical frameworks that can be used to understand why differences in performance both between and within markets can arise, how and why such differences can persist over time, and how this affects strategic decisions in companies.
- The Organisation and Leadership theme examines the business itself, with a focus on the challenges business leaders meet when they plan to implement or deploy strategies, how one should lead and develop the business’s human resources, and how one can carry out complex organisational changes.

Please refer to NOKUT (The Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education) for information about the minimum educational requirements for your country.90 ECTS must be within economics and business administration. This may include methodological subjects like statistics or mathematics, but not exclusively. 30 ECTS must be within business administration (e.g. finance, accounting, strategy, marketing, statistics, mathematics, etc.). Economics courses such as micro- or macroeconomics may not count toward the business administration requirement. This requirement is absolute and cannot be compensated by work experience, test results or other criteria.Applicants are ranked according to their grade average. Your GPA should correspond approximately to a B on the ECTS grading scale. Admission is highly competitive with only one in eight applicants being offered admission. If you are to complete your degree in the spring semester of the admission year, admission will be assessed on results up to and including the penultimate semester. If offered conditional admission based on ongoing education and final transcripts result in an unacceptable decrease in grade point average, you will be refused unconditional admission.
