By working in close collaboration with our working life contacts both in Finland and abroad as well as utilizing our own authentic practical learning facilities, we educate skilled workers that the companies need to compete in a global setting. For our students, we offer crucial professional skills and life-long learning competences required in the working life of today’s ever-changing world.
