Student experiences from Business Summer School

Before you make a decision of your life, take a look at student experiences and watch videos published by previous Summer School students.

Jamk’s Summer School experience is nothing similar to anything I’ve done in other universities. It’s dynamic, fast-paced, and the perfect environment for ideas to flourish. Although it takes effort to be consistent during two and a half weeks, the results are worth every hour spent working.

... and what your unforgettable summer school experience could be! 

"This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening..."

Attending Jamk Summer School was an unforgettable experience. I decided to attend upon the recommendation of my professor, who became a passionate advocate of the program after teaching at the summer school for several years. After attending summer school, I can understand why he was so eager to share this experience with others.

As my first major trip abroad, I am happy I chose to visit Finland. I loved the quiet streets and the many parks in the cities, and the lakes and lush forests in the countryside were a comforting reminder of my home in the Canadian prairies. Even though I was not an experienced traveler, I felt safe and relaxed every time I went outside.

One of the best parts of summer school was making friends with both local and international students. Through those relationships, I would say I learned as much outside the classroom as I did inside of it. It is astonishing to know that I now have friends from across the globe, and it has made me eager to travel again soon to visit them.

My main lesson from this trip is that the best way to experience another country is through the people who live there. Thanks to the hospitality of the staff and students at Jamk, I was able to appreciate Finland in a way that I couldn’t have on my own.

A bit of business, a bit of fun

The summer school is a perfect balance of both!
