The scholarships are subject to Norwegian taxes and benefits, including health care provision and membership of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.

  1. I am glad to have the info above in respect to pursuing a PhD in Business Administration. It's quite uneasy to pursue a PhD in Africa and yet we would like to develop our nations here but funds do not permit us, i wonder if i can have an opportunity to study a PhD in Business in Norway. Are there opportunities for a scholarship and what are the charges for doing it when not sponsored?

    I am completing my degree of Master of Business Administration in Management at Ndejje University in Uganda.

    I will be grateful for your positive response.

    Kind regards,

    1. Dear Manish,

      This scholarship is awarded annually, with two deadlines, the 1st November 2011 (which is expired) and 1st February 2012. That means you still have time to apply for it. For more information please visit the official website, and contact The Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration.

      Kind regards

    1. Dear Stephen,

      I am not sure what you mean by "can I apply this year after i have completed the MBA this April 2012". Do you mean can you apply for the 1 February deadline, even thou you haven't completed your MBA yet? I don think you can, seeing as one of the requirements is for candidates to already have a Master's degree. But, you will still be eligible to apply for the 1 November deadline.
      To make sure I would advise you to contact the PhD admission office at NHH: [email protected] They are best suited to answer your question.

      Kind regards
