Develop yourself in several spheres
The degree of International Business is a unique combination of theory and practice, which consists of 3,5 years of study
It is a great opportunity to not only try your knowledge but also understand how to do something in practice as well as understand the reasons behind the processes that you are doing. As a future BBA, I think it is important to be both effective and flexible in different situations because the world of business never stops for anyone and you should be able to adapt to the changes quickly. That’s why the program of international Business is a good choice, because you always challenge yourself.
When I was applying for a study place, Lapland University of Applied Sciences wasn’t of my first choice; however, later I realized that Lapin AMK IS actually an excellent alternative.
As for the lectures, they are practical, that’s why 1,5 hour runs very quickly; when you are busy doing something, time flies by faster and you always have some progress. Besides, some of the courses are more understandable and fascinating than the others, because sometimes, it takes time to understand what is needed from you; like in Financial Management, for instance.
In the first semester of my studies, we had many lectures – it’s understandable, because we should learn the basics first in order to move forward. However, now there is lots of group work and projects. To my mind, working in a group is the best! If the team is good enough, together we can reach greater success than studies, free-choice electives and for your own hobbies. each individually. By the way, teachers here are always eager to help at any time of the day, and there is much time for self-studies, free-choice electives and for your own hobbies.
I would recommend The International Business degree to others, because it gives you an opportunity to develop yourself in several spheres such as Marketing, Project Management, Accounting or Business Law. Personally, I want to combine business and law in my future job.
