Meet the professors, researchers, doctoral students and staff of International Business.
The unit of International Business focuses on developing strategic and managerial capabilities needed to succeed in an increasingly complex and culturally diverse global environment.
We strive to be the leading International Business unit in Europe.
Our Past and Present
Since 1989 our faculty has pioneered business education in Finland by offering a full-fledged M.Sc. programme taught entirely in English with real life teaching cases and engagement of international business professionals.
We continue this pioneering spirit by developing cutting-edge teaching and research in International Business. Combining strong research with the multicultural background of our faculty and students enables us to educate professionals with competences and skills needed to anticipate and respond to global challenges in a creative and responsible manner.
