Confidentiality of assignments

‚ÄčAs a rule, examination papers at BI Norwegian Business School cannot be marked as confidential. However, for the final thesis in various courses it is possible to apply for confidentiality.

The application must be submitted to the specific course administration, which will process this in cooperation with the academic supervisor.

Reasons for the application must be given, and it must be supported by documentation. 

  

Submitting your final Thesis

Bachelor Thesis:

When you submit your Thesis in DigiEx, you tick off whether you need your Thesis to be confidential or not. 
The Thesis will be confidential for 1 - one - year. 

Master Thesis

When you submit your Thesis in DigiEx, you tick off whether you need your Thesis to be confidential or not.
You choose confidentiality for 1 or 2 year. 

Master of Management
When you submit your project paper in DigiEx, you tick off whether you need your paper to be confidential or not. 
The Thesis will be confidential forever.

Submitting your thesis on hard-copy paper?
This applies to just a small group of student / courses. 
If your final thesis / project paper is to be submitted on hard-copy paper; fill in this form to apply for confidentiality. A
 confirmation of extended confidentiality must accompany all copies of the thesis, and this will also be submitted to the examiners. 

Submit the answer paper as usual, and mark it clearly with CONFIDENTIAL on the front page of the paper.  
 

After the period of confidentiality

A Master's thesis that has been granted confidentiality for one or two years, will be made accessible in the library once the period of confidentiality has expired.

This does not apply to a Bachelor's thesis.

Master of Management project papers granted confidentiality, will never be made accessible in the library, but be confidential indefinitely. 
 

Application for confidentiality in other kinds of assignments   

Generally confidentiality is not granted for other kinds of assignments.

The answer papers are normally copyrighted, and all use of these, e.g. in teaching (lecturers or on itslearning), require consent from the student. 

This applies even if the answer paper is anonymised.

These answer papers will not be made accessible in the library.
