School of Business provided tools for entrepreneurship
When Satu Rämö was a student in the early 2000s, there was barely any talk about entrepreneurship at the School of Business, and the start-up culture had also not emerged yet. Rämö regrets that she missed the emergence of the start-up culture but is happy that it took wind the way it did.
And even though her Master’s degree in Economics did not directly teach her to become an entrepreneur, it nevertheless taught her to think about different scenarios and consider all the aspects to think about when signing an agreement, for instance.
‘When I became an author, I realised that I’m going to need the help of experts well-versed in contract law as I needed my contracts to be in order for all kinds of scenarios. After all, it was possible that my books wouldn’t sell, but it could also be that things would go well and my books would be popular. I wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t put my earnings at risk by acting too hastily.’
For anyone thinking about their future place of study, Satu Rämö highly recommends studies at the School of Business. She points out that the School of Business is an excellent choice for those who want to have a say in things and do something brand-new that may not even exist just yet.
‘When I graduated, there was no social media and Instagram yet, but now that’s where I make a big part of my revenue. The School of Business provided me with tools that have allowed me to make use of this new channel,’ she says.
‘I also made great friends and created wide networks that have supported me in my career. And thanks to working in communications at KY for a year and editing the Kylteri paper, I was also a nearly qualified journalist when graduating.’
