Presentation of AFF and our services

Our reputation

Since 2008 Financial Times has annually rated AFF and our partner NHH, among the top open-enrollment program providers in the world. Delivering value for money, high skills and learning, excellent course design and outstanding program facilities are considered to be our trademark among our customers. Approximately 5.000 participants have completed our executive management and mentoring programs. 

 

 

Over the last twenty years AFF has completed a number of large-scale tailored programs for multinational companies. Intensive training sessions have been organized in most European countries, as well as in Asia and the Americas. Telecommunications, petroleum, manufacturing, shipping, aquaculture, finance and construction are among the industries we specialize in.

Our consultants, locations and & facilities

Our highly qualified consultants integrate state of the art principles and the latest research results with practical, hands-on business experience. Most of our staff have leadership experience. With our benchmarking capacities, consultants team up with customers to support company goals and strategies. Most of us have worked with global participants and have international training and work experience. Our offices are located in Bergen and Oslo.

 

AFF has been cooperating with the Solstrand Hotel and Spa outside Bergen for more than 60 years. Together we have shaped an outstanding centre for leadership development activities. Today this unique venue is used for most of our open-enrolment programs  and several other AFF activities.

Our partners

To meet the needs of our international clients we work with consultants and specialists across organizational and cultural borders. AFF has an extensive network and has in particular worked with consultants and specialists from Ashridge Business School, London Business School, ETH in Zürich, Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), University of Bergen and Norwegian Business School (BI).

 

Through our NHH relationship we are also linked to the Community of European Business Schools (CEMS) and Partnership in International Management (PIM)
