The practically oriented Bachelor’s Degree Programmes offered by JAMK are International Business, Business Information Technology, Nursing, Purchasing and Logistics Engineering, Tourism Management and Information and Communication Technology. The latest is a new degree programme, which is answering the high demand for ICT engineers with software, IT and teamwork skills. Students in this programme can specialise in either Software Engineering or Cyber Security.

– Students have access to Finland's most modern and versatile laboratory environments, such as RGCE and Wimma Lab. RGCE is a key part of JAMK's cyber security training, research and development centre. The RGCE environment is used in many national and international cyber security exercises organized by JAMK. The Wimma Lab is an excellent example of what studying in a degree programme can be at its best: A unique learning environment where students form teams and virtual companies to solve a real problem presented by a real company, says Jari Hautamäki, Principal Lecturer at JAMK.

The six English Master’s Degree Programmes offered by JAMK are Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics, Cyber Security, International Business Management, Sport Business Management, Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy and completely new Professional Project Management.

The new Professional Project Management degree programme can be applied for in a wide range of engineering degrees, such as mechanical, energy, construction and community, information technology and communications, environmental, logistics, electrical / automation technology, and industrial engineering and management, as well as various degrees in rescue and fire engineering. The degree programme is implemented completely as online training.

– Students can utilise the skills and knowledge from their work as well as real projects related to their work. This way, the studies can be effectively integrated into one's own career development. The studies also provide a solid foundation when applying internationally recognized project management certificates, says Senior Lecturer Matti Siistonen from JAMK.

Finnish legislation on tuition fees obligates higher education institutions to charge tuition fees for students who are not citizens of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country. The fee for Bachelor’s Degrees is 8000 € / academic year and 9000 € / academic year for Master’s Degrees. However, in the first academic year JAMK offers a scholarship that covers 50% of the tuition fee at JAMK. In the following academic years the scholarship covers 50% of the tuition fee if a student earns at least 60 credits per academic year in Bachelor's degrees (30 credits per academic year in Master's degrees). For EU and EEA citizens, tuition fees do not apply.

The application period ends in January 20 at 3PM (UTC +2:00). Further information about all the Degree Programmes and how to apply can be found at:
