One-Year Education

We empower young creators to be the change they want to see in the world. One project at a time. We are looking for dedicated impact agents, leaders, problem solvers, change makers, dreamers, thinkers and most off all doers. Join team 17!


Emergence School of Leadership is one of Norway’s smallest and most unique schools. Every year we enroll 28 students, to form multidisciplinary teams. The average age is 27, and a complete team include all kinds of backgrounds, educations, work-experiences, network and personalities. All students are selected through our application- and interview process, where we identify the right mix of motivated and talented people for our next team.


As a student at Emergence you have to be prepared to dedicate yourself to: A year full of long days, close relationships, multidisciplinary teamwork, deep conversations, constant reflection, active experimentation, practical methods, learning through real projects, dealing with demanding, but exciting clients and diving into complex problems. And perhaps most important, you have to be ready to participate in a culture where fellow students, instructors, coaches, clients and specialists want to challenge, provoke, support and inspire each other.

We help you unleash your uniqueness as a person and leader + scan the world around you = so you can solve the right problems and create projects with true impact.


Our aim is to provide our students with an education relevant to the rapidly developing complexity of the professional life they aim to be a part of and challenge.

Improve the world – one project at a time

A new generation of project leaders is really needed out there. Things are changing – faster and faster – and most people or organizations are not ready to deal with this without help. We guess that´s some of the reason why our students do so well. They really work. Work as hell. Or heaven. Or whatever you call it. And which company doesn´t love that? You tell us.

Our Career Oppurtunities

How far can we take you? Well, where do you want to go? So far we have educated over 300 talents. They work for (or sometimes start) companies like United Screens, Angst Bar, PR-operatørene, Alle Gutta, Anti, Neue Design Studio, Tidal, Design House, Expo Nova, Norwegian Icons, Design Container, Grid, Diesel, Geelmuyden Kiese, MESH, Spaces, JCP, Superblaise, Zink, Grafill, Apt, Hyper, Playroom, Pivot, 657 Oslo, Tidal and Good Morning. Plus a bunch more, of course. From UD, Røde Kors, Kreftforeningen, Fredskorpset, Amnesty and NAV to VG.


Everything is possible. But more importantly, our students grow immensely and do
things they actually want to do. Good things. Things that matter. Because they can. And dare.
