Mette-Marit goes back to school

The Palace reported today that Crown Princess Mette-Marit will be going back to school part time.

The Crown Princess will be taking the course “Management; power and opinion” which is part of a Master of Management degree at BI, the Norwegian School of Management (Or one of them at any rate… this is the private one). Commenting to VG, the Palace spokesman says that he has no comment to when this course was decided, or whether or not she will be taking the entire Master’s degree. She will receive 30 ECTS for her participation this year.

The course will consist of 5 gatherings of about 4 days each and go until June next year. It is not known how much this will play into the Crown Princess’ official schedule, only that it may mean that it will be diminished.

It seems to be following in Sonja's footsteps, who also did a degree while being the Crown Princess, and the course selected also seems to tie into what she was studying before, with Philosophy of Life and Ethics at the University of Oslo, and development studies in London.

Is it possible in Norway to obtain a Master's Degree without an Undergraduate Degree? As far as I know, she started many University programs but never finished anything.

It's the experience in a high position/management/+ former field of study, is my guess, in this case, which makes her eligible. She has about a year of study in London - it would make 60 pts, and she does have study points from various other things as well.

It is entirely possible to put together various courses and points into a bachelor's degree, from the uni where you've earned the most points, without following a formal programme, but I think that if she had done that, we would have had it announced.

But it is definitely not the standard.

I which her good luck with her studies. Family, kids, royal duties and studies. I wonder if/how she can manage to spare some leisure time for only herself.

Nooo, I don't think the lack of another child in the offing was the reason Mette-Marit opted to further her education. After all, many pregnant ladies go to school, too. They don't have to choose between going back to school and being in their condition, especially with the money the CP and her husband have.

Oh, dear ... I don't speak, nor read, a word of Norwegian.

Can you link us to where some translations might be found, perhaps?

Thank you

She might be pregnant in that time ... even if only to make the point to the country that women CAN do everything successfully.

Mette's first day at school
Første skoledag for Mette-Marit - Side2

She looks great. Glowing somehow.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit arrives her first day at the Oslo School of Economics in Oslo, Norway, November 24, 2008. Crown Princess is going to attend lectures at the school.

I have a question, please: What is the title of the dapper-looking fellow wearing the "necklace". Is he a Don / Professour?

Tell me more, please. I don't know about the Norwegian school system.

Using the Aftenposten article as a baseline, I looked up the name of the President of the School of Management, Tom Colbjørnsen on the their website

Academic homepage - BI

He is the one in the video and he is wearing the collar of the President of the School of Managment. Most major universities around the world have this type decoration for the president, chairman of the board of trustees, provosts, deans, etc. that they wear at commencement ceremonies or other formal occasions.

THANK YOU, princess may!

I notice that you live here in America. I don't recall seeing anyone associated with out Universities wearing such a decoration or "jewellry".
I do recall seeing people, in seniour university positions, wearing gowns with more hoods (& colours on them) but not jewellry which looks almost Lord Mayour-ish, in it garishness.

Again, thank you for this information.

I am so pleased to see that she is going back to school. She looks fantastic. I've never seen her with such an excited look on her face. I wish her the best of luck!
