Internatiol Business students working in a group

Future Talents partnership programme

Karelia UAS’s Future Talents -partnership programme has been set up to intensify co-operation between the English-taught programmes and the area’s employers. It increases the employment networks of inter­na­tional students and gives oppor­tu­nities to complete intern­ships in North Karelia. The programme also promotes inter­na­tion­al­i­sation of employers in the region.

Partic­i­pation in the programme is free of charge for partnership organ­i­sa­tions. Employers who already have inter­na­tional staff members are welcome to join the programme. On the other hand, this programme is a great oppor­tunity to take the first step towards inter­na­tion­al­i­sation. It is a great oppor­tunity to inter­na­tion­alize the organi­zation and the work community by getting new kinds of compe­tencies (f.e. cultural & language competenses).

You can do this by offering intern­ships for students from our English-taught programmes ‘Inter­na­tional Business’ and ‘Indus­trial Management’. The Indus­trial Management studies (Bachelor of Engineering) combine technology, business and management skills. The four-year degree provides strong expertise in intel­ligent production (automation, Lean, Robotics, Quality, Data Analysis), sales, product and service life cycle management, and in team and project leadership.

The Inter­na­tional Business studies provide a compre­hensive picture of inter­na­tional business. The students will get quali­fi­cation to tasks in inter­na­tional marketing and business, especially in inter­na­tional marketing and customer compe­tence. The inter­na­tional BBA degree also includes studies in commu­ni­cation, finance, sales and management. Learn more about the programme:
