Hi! My name is Nina Niskala, born and raised here in Rovaniemi. At the moment I'm studying my third year in International Business and I got to say I have been really happy with my choice for place to study!
I recommend Degree Programme in International Business for everyone who are not afraid to challenge themselves. During the first year you will get a good knowledge base about working in international team, project work and accounting. After that during the second and third year you will adapt your skills into practice through several case studies in multicultural environment.
Another great way to develop yourself and get valuable working experience is by joining our student union InnoBarentsLab
. My journey in IBL started back in fall semester 2015 with Give Back to Finland
-project, which is a social entrepreneurship project aiming to encourage people to give back to the society, and also break the ice between foreigners and local older generation in this area. During that time I gained lot of new friends, and got to do things which I will always remember. Since then, I worked in various roles within IBL, and gained lot of practical experience through different projects. So I guess in my case, joining IBL really changes everything for me, because now when I look back at my study time (which is still not finished though) all my best experiences are somehow related to InnoBarentsLab.
So, if you choose to apply to study in Lapland UAS, you will also have the chance to join IBL and see for yourself how much you can accomplish already as a student. Not to mention the Lappish environment and great hospitable people are certainly the features you will notice if you move here. What I like the most about International Business is that even though I get to study in my home town, I have met lot of new friends from all over the world. Rovaniemi is becoming more and more international all the time, so student life here and possibly your future career will give you lifelong memories.
So take up on a new challenge and come to study in Lapland - unique environment with a lot of potential. Nähdään siellä!
