Our programme in International Business provides our students with a strong base in business skills and tools to manage businesses in intercultural settings. The curriculum is designed to provide the skills and expertise in a large body of business fields.


Students can start, manage and maintain their firms
or develop their professions further in any local or international company, in Finland or abroad. They are also capable of adapting and managing ongoing changes in the working life environments, which keeps them in the top expertise level. Studies in this programme are based on blended learning, combining classroom studies, online classes and project work.

The degree awarded is a Bachelor of Business Administration. The extent of the degree is 210 ECTS and the duration is approx. 3,5 years. The degree consists of basic studies, professional studies, elective studies, work placement and thesis.

The basic studies include the basic business skills such as Basics of MS Office, Economics, Business Mathematics and project management skills. Included in the basics of business management are study periods such as Business Administration, Marketing, Accounting, Business Law, Management and Starting Up Foreign Trade. They also include language and communication skills.

In the professional studies the student studies three different modules within International Business to complete a total of 75 credits. These modules are about Creative Marketing, Global Business and Tourism and Event Management.

The elective studies support and complete the student's individual study plan and professional orientation. Work placement gives the student a possibility to strengthen their expertise in demanding duties corresponding to their line of degree programme. When writing the thesis the student applies and reinforces the skills and expertise acquired. The thesis is usually commissioned by a company or an organization and it includes a research or a development project.

The studies strengthen the student's knowledge of Business Management and business in general, the knowledge of the practices in business and the ability to apply this knowledge in working life. The studies focus on professional knowledge and skills and on versatile development, social and communication skills. A Bachelor of Business Administration masters various skills and expertise in business.

The overall objective of the program is to provide the students with professional, international, personal and social competences to operate in an international business environment. The program provides good possibilities to study in an international environment, as this is a group of multicultural students.
