The programme aims to provide training for specialist and management tasks in businesses that operate internationally. Some of the courses offered are related to tourism and event management. The Master’s degree is implemented on a two-year timescale. The second-cycle (Master’s) degree taken at a university of applied sciences is a second-cycle degree in the European higher education system and gives the same qualification for municipal and state officials as a Master’s degree taken at a university.

Who is the Degree Programme for?

You are eligible if you have a higher education degree completed in Finland or a higher education degree in the field of study completed outside Finland. You also need to have at least two years of work experience in business and administration and a command of English required for the studies.

What Are the Objectives of the Programme?

The programme aims to increase professional knowledge of international business management. Having completed the programme, the student has grown into a business management professional, capable of independent decision-making, working with management or demanding expert tasks in businesses that operate in international business directly or indirectly.

How are the Studies Organized?

Multimodal learning methods are used. Live lessons are offered at Kokkola Campus during the week. Additionally, lessons are offered online, including online studies (Abode Connect) once or twice per month on an average, normally on Friday afternoons or Saturdays. Furthermore, independent distance studies (on student’s own time) are required.

The learning process consist of lectures, exercises in class, independent work as well as distant learning assignments and development projects. The thesis as a development project is an essential part of the studies.

Occupational Profiles

Most of the graduates of the programme work in different specialist or management positions in business. Under the Finnish legislation, a person who has taken a Master's degree at a university of applied sciences is qualified for posts or positions in the public sector for which the qualification requirement is a first cycle/second cycle degree. In some cases, the qualification requirement also includes the completion of studies in certain specific fields of study.
