Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell finished in a tie for fourth place on 13-under with Alexander Levy, Richard Bland, Peter Hanson and Tommy Fleetwood.
Shane Lowry finished on 5-under and former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley posted a score of 2-under.
Noren's victory continues his impressive form where he has know won three of his last eight events.
Speaking at the conclusion of his round, McDowell said: "it was a very pleasing week in general. I wish I felt as comfortable on the back nine as I did on the front nine all week but that's just one of those things. Sometimes a golf course fits your eye in places and doesn't fit it in others."
"The back nine wasn't flicking my switches this week and I didn't play it very well. Especially holes like 18."
Reflecting on his season so far, McDowell said: " 2015 wasn't my best year. 16 has been a lot more like it. I've been a bit inconsistent but I like the way it's been trending."
