Comments:
1. The Oslo campus of BI is famous for nurturing economic and management talents. It was an international programme with students from all over the world.

2. In the first two weeks, we learned Scandinavian management model and comparison with the different cultures’ style. During the class, I found that foreign students are more active in asking questions than Chinese students.

3.In the first weekend, I went to Sjoa rafting tour for two days with classmates. It was an extra activity for the program. Although we needed to pay extra money, we enjoyed the activities a lot. BI supplied us snacks, arranged transportation and accommodation for us.

Other Comments:
1. During summer, the temperature at day time is between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. The temperature can be higher than 30 degrees at noon, but the temperature difference between day and night is large. Rainy days are much cooler. It is suggested to bring a thick sweater or jacket in addition to normal summer clothing.

2. It is convenient to purchase a transportation card to take the subway, bus and trams in Oslo. But remember to activate it before the first use. In addition, pay attention to the schedule as there are only a few trains at night time. Taking taxi is expensive.
