Change of Name in English

From Friday 1 July the official English name of the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration will be changed to the Norwegian School of Economics. Known most commonly as "NHH", the acronym of its Norwegian name, Norges Handelshyskole, that will continue to be the School's main identifier both in Norway and internationally. The official English name will only be used in situations where it is felt necessary to explain what NHH is in an international context.

NHH is Norway's oldest business school and has, since its foundation, been the leading Norwegian teaching and research institution in the fields of economics and business administration. See the entry under Norway in the partner list for the relevant links to the website.
