Eveli­ina Miikku­lainen is the alumnus of the year 2023 at Karelia UAS

Eveli­ina Miikku­lainen, a year 2018 grad­u­ate from Karelia UAS Degree Programme in Busi­ness Econom­ics, has been selected as the alumnus of the year 2023. 

She has been actively coop­er­at­ing with Karelia UAS after her graduation.

The alumnus of the year has been selected since 2017. The word alumnus (plural alumni) refers to all students grad­u­ated from Karelia UAS and the previ­ous North Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences/North Karelia Poly­tech­nic as well as our inter­na­tional exchange students.

The aim of alumni activ­i­ties is to promote the connec­tion between Karelia UAS and working life and to support the emer­gence of coop­er­a­tion between students and local busi­nesses. Karelia UAS alumni can, for example, work as expert lectur­ers in study units, invite student groups for study excur­sions at their work­places, provide students with intern­ships, projects and thesis topics, and act as mentors prepar­ing students for working life.
