We educate responsible leaders and experts who seek to create a better world and solve the challenges faced by society. Our fields of research and education are business studies, technology, languages and communication, and administrative sciences.

Our beautiful campus is located close to the city centre. The buildings of the dense university campus surround a green park and the windows open up to the changing seasons of the sea with its birds, boats and ice fishers.

We offer diverse study options in English both for Finnish and international applicants on Master's degree and doctoral level. We also welcome approximately 200 exchange students from our partner universities to study at our university annually. In addition to the studies in English, we offer various degree programmes in Finnish for students.
