Study contents

Students learn basic skills relevant for work in business, such as marketing, financial management, law, business communication and project planning. Their knowledge deepens in innovative, responsible business projects while they work together with local businesses. During their studies students learn to recognise the challenges particularly of small companies operating in the northern regions and to find new approaches to business development. Students learn about the possibilities of establishing their own business. Students can improve their international skills by studying or completing practical training abroad. 

 The IB programme provides students with extensive and balanced professional skills in the field of responsible business services and cross-border and cross-cultural communication in the region defined as the Northern Dimension. Students obtain skills for understanding the functions and processes of enterprises operating in the region and the special characteristics of the peripheral environment. The focus of professional specialisation is not only on new business opportunities, but also on observing the needs of existing enterprises in subcontracting or outsourcing specific services that support their core business. 

Learning also takes place in diverse, changing environments consisting of laboratories, virtual surroundings, environments offered by international partners, working life and research, development and innovation projects. Coaching is a key pedagogical philosophy applied in the programme to promote innovative learning. The aim is to focus teaching to meet the diverse needs of the students. Multiform learning: A form of learning in which studies are comprised of contact teaching hours, distance studies and independent studies. Students’ independent work often forms the bulk of studies and is supported by distance and contact teaching and guidance. Multiform studies make diverse use of information and communication technology (e.g. audio teaching, working online, e-mail, and guidance by means of learning exercises). Multiform teaching also uses distance teaching tools to bring studies to areas outside of university localities (e-primer). Contact teaching is the conventional face-to-face form of teaching (e-primer). 

Learning by working together with real business life is one of the main aims of the programme. It is implemented by means of various course assignments as well as practical training and joint projects with working life.
