JAMK Summer School: Creativity and Communication May 29th - June 17th 2015

Intensive, three-week study tracks have been designed to challenge and inspire you in your business studies. JAMK Summer School includes lectures, workshops, get-togethers and interesting site visits. Each year JAMK Summer School gathers around 200 students and lecturers from e.g. Argentina, Canada, Singapore, the USA, plus students and experts from all around Europe.

Excellent combination of theory and practice

Studies at the School of Business are a practical-oriented alternative to traditional university education and give the students an excellent combination of hands-on skills along with a strong theoretical knowledge base. For the summer 2015 we have tailored a special Creativity and Communication Programme. We recommend choosing four courses from the topics listed below.

Intensive, three-week study tracks are based on our areas of expertise and they have been designed to challenge and inspire you in your business studies. Contact hours are between 9 am - 4 pm on weekdays. The Summer School is aimed at students from our partner institutions and JAMK students.

Both Bachelor's and Master's level courses available. Registration and payment takes place online.
