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. Learn more about the programme:

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:

The Infor­ma­tion and Commu­ni­ca­tion Tech­nol­ogy programme includes studies support­ing machine learn­ing, soft­ware robot­ics, data analyt­ics, the Inter­net of Things, lean think­ing, project manage­ment and entre­pre­neur­ship. The students are trained for inter­na­tional work duties. The students can special­ize in intel­li­gent automa­tion or soft­ware produc­tion in their studies. Learn more about the programme:
