Student testimonials

Lectures from native English speakers, as well as communicating in English have definitely improved my language skills. Also, after Mikkeli, presentations are not as intimidating as they once were. I feel prepared for the job market."

Igor Rech L. Oliveira, Brazil

As an American student, it was great to be able to have the option to study Finland, but be taught in English. I can now say that thanks to our full degree seeking students, and our exchange students, I have friends all over the world.”

Oksana Mitchell, USA

Being exposed to completely different surroundings and people, really forces you to broaden your views and perspectives. My exchange fall in Tokyo taught me so much of not only Japan and the Japanese culture but of myself as well. Exchange gives you the opportunity to experience a new country and culture in an amazing way and make new friends from all around the world. Getting to live in Tokyo for five months is an experience I would not change for anything!”

Karoliina Raiski, Finland


Alumni testimonials

alumni1.jpgThe structure of the BScBA Program, puts a heavy emphasis on the cooperation between students, which builds a unique culture unlike any other in Finland and enables students to build lifelong friendships along the way. The program’s emphasis on international environment, group work and presentation skills have proved to be highly useful in my career. The networks and relationships built during my study abroad period in the US helped Smarp later to expand to the US market.  Aalto University was a great launchpad for Smarp and my studies in Mikkeli provided the skills needed to succeed in a global business environment.”

Roope Heinilä, CEO and co-founder of Smarp Ltd.


alumni2.jpgWe had a lot of presentations about different topics during the studies. We had to be able to react quickly to different situations and utilize the knowledge we had accumulated earlier in class on the spot. This can be a very useful skill in business. When customers demand solutions to sometimes very demanding situations or when the media asks for a statement, it is good to be able to react fast and explain things in the right order and in an understandable way.”

Vesa Sironen, Managing Director of Gapps Ltd.
