Our mission

The MEBA Council represents the interests of the international students in the six internationally focused Master of Science programs at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). The Council is responsible for over 150 international degree students in the realms of academic affairs, social events and corporate relations. In addition, the Council works on increasing the visibility of NHH internationally and is part of the International Student Union of Norway. 

NHH is a world-class business school that offers many unique, differentiated opportunities that we want to make more accessible to all. We believe that our dedication to the welfare of the current international students, as well as our plans to increase the visibility of NHH for prospective students will benefit the entire NHH community and solidify the institution as a leading international university in Norway.

MEBA/CEMS Cabin Trip

There are few things more Norwegian than spending the night at a cabin in the woods. Therefore we have organized a 2-day cabin trip to Kvamskogen in cooperation with GEP. First we played some introductory games to get to know each other, then we enjoyed a traditional Norwegian meal: tacos on Friday, took an ice-cold bath in the nearby lake and after shared a few drinks to warm our spirits.
