Program Overview

The Norwegian School of Economics, our partner in Norway, provides a program for economics students to learn from experts in their field.  The summer course will consist of guest lecturers from academic institutions and the business community.  The program has been developed and organized in partnership with a range of companies active in the major industries examined during the course.  Company visits and case studies form a major part of the course schedule.  Students can enroll in one of the following courses:
ELE428: Natural Resource Management: The Norwegian Model: The course gives an overview of analytical, empirical and institutional issues in modern economic natural resource management and policy, and the tools, experience and insights that economists and decision-makers have gained from the management of nature, broadly defined. The terms of reference of the course will, in particular, be an economic analysis and evaluation of the resource management and policy regimes developed by a natural resource-rich country like Norway.

Visiting the Fjords in NorwayStudent Spotlight: Josh Krahenbuhl
"The academic program provided by the host institution, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, offered a mix of elements that were great for the end of my one-year program in Applied Economics.  Norway in particular plays an important role in the world when it comes to natural resources.  The course featured distinguished professors from NHH that were experts in their field, and this provided a scope of economics that was only briefly touched upon in our courses at the University of Cincinnati.  The opportunity to study first-hand and to take excursions to some of the companies that are central to Norway’s economy, combined with my passion for nature and the outdoors, were the biggest reasons I chose this program."  Read more about Josh's experience in Norway here
