Charlotte Durieux, LSM/NHH 2015-2017: "The Double Degree allowed me to take classes that I would or could not necessarily have followed otherwise. I got to discovered a new culture and build a network abroad. It was a challenging experience but worth the knowledge and friends I have acquired!"
Louis, LSM/NHH 2018-2020: "The LSM Double Degree gave me the opportunity to spend one year in Norway. More than an excellent program, it is a life exerience. Studying two majors and discovering a new country are an enriching experience opening a lot of opportunities for the future. I left Belgium and came back 11 months later with skills and knowledge I shouldn't be able to get in staying in my Belgian bubble.
I built real friendship with Norwegians and international people, travelled across one of the most beautiful country of this planet,... It is way more than a 4-month exchange!"
Double Degree Structure
If you apply through LSM, your home university will be the LSM, you will therefore spend your first year at LSM and your second year at NHH as your host university.
Dedicated Double Degree
A DDD is a programme already defined which brings together the strengths and expertise of each university. It is designed to combine two clearly identified majors giving an added value and an expertise in a specific field on top of the Master’s degree in management. This DDD integrates the major in supply chain at LSM and the major in energy and renewable resources in NHH combining therefore a focus on environmental issues and supply chain management.
The DDD partnership has been designed for a specific specialization: Supply chain and Environment. The legal compatibility and the practical feasibility of the programme have been confirmed by both institutions. We therefore encourage you to follow the combination that is initially proposed in this DDD. Nevertheless, if you have any specific project in mind that would require a different combination of majors from each school, you are free to submit it to the Educational Advisor.
Students enrolled in a double degree LSM/NHH are required to write one single Master's thesis. Therefore the students will have to find two professors: one at LSM and one at NHH. One will be the main supervisor and the other one the reader.
Students usually start their work for the Master's thesis already during the first year. The Master's thesis will be written in English. A mandatory oral defense, by videoconference, will take place in front of at least the two professors.
