The festive graduation ceremony for the newly graduated Bachelors of Science in Economics and Business Administration was held last Saturday at the Concert and Congress Center Mikaeli in Mikkeli. 91 students of the Bachelor’s Program in International Business graduated from the program during the academic year.

The School of Business has provided business education at the Mikkeli Campus already from 1989. Over the years, over 4000 students have studied in the program. From 2015 onwards, students have had an automatic study right to Master's Programs at the School of Business and most of the graduates will continue their studies at the Otaniemi Campus.

Program Director Joan Lofgren, the alumna of the program and Head of Communications of the city of Mikkeli Heidi Hänninen and a graduating student Aino Saarelainen gave speeches at the graduation ceremony. The first year students Ha Nguyen and Nhi Nguyen provided musical performances at the event. Our warm congratulations to all the graduates!
