UMB (Universitetet for miljø- og biovitenskap, Norwegian University of Life Sciences) is located in Ås near Oslo. UMB began in 1859 as the only Norwegian agricultural post-graduate college (Norges landbrukshøgskole). In 2005 the institution received the Norwegian university status, and is now one of the 8 accredited universities in Norway.

In 2009 we did a Strategic Assessment Study for fundraising and then helped UMB to implement our recommendations.
