Profile, targets and structure

The Degree Programme for Business Service Solutions and Languages prepares students for a wide range of commercial and administrative roles. We grow multi-skilled business-savvy professionals who are able to adjust easily in multicultural and international contexts and have strong skills in communication, operational orchestration and business understanding.

With English as the teaching language, our students learn also Finnish and one or more other languages within our student body of 20+ nationalities. In addition to language skills and cultural capabilities, the programme offers students both theoretical and practical know-how for navigating through strategic missions, complex tasks and transformational turbulences throughout their careers. This programme also equips students to design and deliver different types of events and projects.

During the studies, our students participate in multiple company commissions gaining hands-on professional insight and helping them become resourceful problem-solvers in their chosen field. After completion of this programme, our students deliver dependably and creatively solutions to multiple business and organizational challenges in the modern digitalized world. Our graduates contribute proactively and collaboratively to results within their company networks and workplace communities.

Key learning outcomes

The programme provides students with a broad set of skills, enabling them to function in roles requiring initiative and a proactive approach. The competencies of the graduates are divided into subsets as follows: business understanding, intercultural communication, information management (practical ICT-skills), organisational skills and business operations know-how.

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 alternatives:
- Leadership and HR
- Marketing, Sales and Services
- Meetings Industry
- Organisational Communication
- Entrepreneurship

Internationalisation

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 for an exchange, do work placement abroad or participate in international business development projects.

Work placement and cooperation with the business community

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 enterprises. The students will do a work placement of one semester during their studies.

Career opportunities

Active collaboration with companies 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. The programme prepares students for roles such as office managers, business managers, marketing coordinators, communication specialists, project coordinators, PR and event managers, HR specialists as well as management, executive and legal assistants.
