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 2016 we have tailored a special Creativity and Communication Programme. We recommend choosing four courses from the topics listed below.

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.

Courses 2016 | 3 ECTS each

We recommend the first five courses especially for Master’s level but they are also available for Bachelor’s level students.

Programme includes 4 courses of your own choice. Each course is 3 ECTS. After completing the courses of your choice you will receive a Transcript of Records on the credits you have earned.
