Kristiania University College (founded 1914) is an educational foundation with campuses in Oslo and Bergen, and online. We are an accredited college with 10,000 students, 500 employees, and currently eight academic departments offering more than 100 programmes. We have had a formidable growth in recent years, and we will continue to expand. Our ambition is to become Norway’s first private university.
WE ARE HIRING 4 NEW DEANS
As part of our strategic ambitions of growth, and to seek accreditation as a full university, we are reorganising into four schools:
School of Health Sciences
School of Arts, Design, and Media
School of Economics, Innovation, and Technology
School of Communication, Leadership, and Marketing
The School of Arts, Design and Media will offer talent development programmes within performing arts, design, film and media. The School of Communication, Leadership, and Marketing will offer social sciences programmes within leadership, organization, marketing, PR, politics and journalism. The School of Economics, Innovation and, Technology will offer programmes within industrial economics, innovation, business data analytics, information systems, human computer interaction and applied computer science. The School of Health Sciences will offer programmes within preventive and promotional health care.
Each school will be led by a Dean. Reporting to the Rector (President) of Kristiania University College, the Deans will be the chief academic and administrative officers for our new schools. The Deans will be responsible for all educational, research and outreach activities at their respective schools. This includes higher education in all three cycles (Bachelor, Master, Ph.D.), as well as ensuring that the academic staff produce scientific and academic research at a high international level and are successful in obtaining funding for research projects. In line with current national educational policy, Kristiania University College has established continued education as a priority. The Deans will be expected to contribute actively to furthering this priority.
