Key learning outcomes of the Programme
The Degree Programme for Multilingual Management Assistants prepares students for a range of roles in business administration. Multi-skilled administrative professionals who are able to operate flexibly in international contexts and have an interest in professional development are always in demand.
The competencies of management assistant graduates are divided into three subsets as follows:
1. Business competence
2. Communication, information retrieval and analysis competence
3. Organisational skills and service competence
In addition to offering relevant business knowledge and skills required of management assistants, the programme equips students to design and deliver different types of events and projects.
Language skills as well as communication and interpersonal skills are given particular emphasis in this programme.
On completion of the programme, students are equipped to perform their roles with initiative and a proactive approach, supporting and contributing to the workplace community. Ongoing professional growth throughout the programme helps students become innovative developers and problem-solvers in their chosen work environment.
The programme prepares students for roles such as management assistants and coordinators, HR coordinators, project assistants, marketing assistants and office managers.
Combined with administrative work experience, the degree offers excellent career prospects in a range of different organisations.
Students work on developing their competence in their chosen path of expertise, choosing from the following options:
- Leadership and HR
- Marketing, Sales and Service
- Meetings Industry
- Organisational Communication
The daily work of the students is all about operating in multicultural teams. They are supervised by staff representing several nationalities. The commissions they get from companies familiarize them with various markets and ways of doing business. They can also go an exchange, do work placement abroad or participate in international development projects. The most appropriate time for the exchange is the 4th semester.
From the beginning of the studies learning takes place in real-life projects closely related to the needs of business and working life. Students work on a variety of assignments commissioned by business companies. Learning is work and work is learning.
Learning with business life opens up doors for the students and helps them develop their networks already during the studies. This makes it easier for graduates to find jobs both in Finland and abroad.
