Seventy-five percent of the students at the Norwegian school of economics (NHH) have landed a job before they have completed their studies. Starting salaries are also increasing, according to a new survey.
"I am pleased that there is a stable and good labour market for business graduates from NHH. The number of graduates has increased significantly in recent years, without this affecting their chances of landing good and relevant jobs," says Rector Frøystein Gjesdal.
The Labour Market Survey is an annual survey of how NHH graduates are received in the labour market. This year's survey shows that just over 92 percent of the students who graduated in spring 2013 have landed a job after six months. Just over 86 percent of the respondents said that they had a job for which their education was relevant.
The starting salaries achieved by new NHH graduates is also increasing steadily. The average salary has now reached NOK 445,000, compared with NOK 431,000 the year before. With bonuses, overtime pay and additional benefits, their average pay is NOK 507,000.
