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.
