Program Description:

The objective of this study course is to provide students with an insight into Norwegian culture and business environment. In particular, it will focus on the challenges faced by Norwegian businesses due to the petroleum sector's dominance of its economy (Dutch disease), and the governmental policies enacted to alleviate these. In addition, we will be interested in learning how businesses deal with the generous social welfare benefits, high taxes, and strict environmental policies.
