The bachelor's program focuses on economics, digitalisation and business development from a technological, business economics, market, security and innovation perspective.

This is a full-time campus-based programme with regular lectures. All courses have their own online learning platforms. Learning and work forms will be based on research and praxis-orientation. There is natural progression in the different courses throughout the programme, and each semester builds on knowledge acquired in the previous semester. It is therefore generally required that the students pass all courses before moving on to the next study year. In order to commence the third year of study, the first year of study as well as at least 30 ECTS credits from the second year of study must be passed. For individual adjustments of the education plan, please contact the Business School administration. Specific recommendations and conditions about pre-existing knowledge are described in the individual course descriptions.

The programme is aimed at persons who want a broad and versatile education in deconomics, digitalisation and business development, an education that also provides a foundation for further studies on master degree level at universities and university colleges in Norway as well as abroad.
