Popularity of JAMK Summer School is increasing

160 students round the world will be attending the Summer School of JAMK University of Applied Sciences in the summer of 2015. The number of international students, both Bachelor and Master level, has increased considerably from over a hundred participants in 2014.

The first group of students has already begun their studies on Industrial Business, the rest will arrive at the beginning of June. The participants coming from JAMK’s partner institutions both in the EU and outside study together with JAMK’s degree and exchange students. The biggest numbers come from the Americas (USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico), an increasing interest from Asia brings students from China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Nepal.

Creativity and Communication in Business offers studies on the various aspects of business: ethics, branding, global business cultures, communication and teamwork, creativity and innovation.  As in previous years, the courses on Latino, Russian and Nordic business culture together with sport and tourism business have raised interest among students.
