There is a shocking shortage of competent employees in many fields in Finland, so employers compete for university students not only once their graduate but also during their studies. The Aalto University School of Business attracts talented foreign students who are looking to get in touch with the world of work in Finland and who, on the other hand, offer a solution to the labour shortage.

Act now and hire an international student from the Aalto University School of Business for an internship!

Hiring an international student as an intern offers an easy and risk-free way for your company to try out international recruitment. It does not require all processes to be translated into English but provides an opportunity to see how a multilingual work community would work. Several small and medium-sized companies have already hired our international students for internships.

Why hire an international School of Business student for an internship?

  1. By hiring an international student, your company becomes more diverse and gains new, innovative perspectives that, according to research, promote the competitiveness and success of companies both in the foreign market and in an increasingly international Finland. According to a study conducted by Business Finland, increasing the share of international employees also increases the company's turnover.

  2. An international student will not only bring their competence to the company table but also knowledge of their country of origin, which can promote the development of business in new market areas, as studies have shown.

  3. In addition, small and medium-sized enterprises, non-profit organisations and state organisations can receive a subsidy from the Aalto University School of Business for the salary costs of an international student, if necessary.

How to recruit an international student from Aalto University

Aalto University has its own job portal, Aalto JobTeaser, where employers can advertise jobs, internships and thesis assignments suitable for Aalto students. We publish adverts that match the level of the university degree and the content of the study field. An internship must also be a paid position for it to the published, and the salary for a full-time internship must at least meet the work requirement of Kela (the Social Insurance Institution of Finland) (including a monthly salary of at least EUR 1 331 in 2023).

School of Business financial internship support

Small and medium-sized enterprises (fewer than 250 employees), non-profit organisations and state organisations in Finland can apply for a subsidy from the School of Business for the salary costs of an international student if necessary.

We provide subsidies only for paid internships in the fields of business and economics in Finland. The salary for a full-time internship must at least meet the work requirement of Kela (the Social Insurance Institution of Finland) (including a monthly salary of at least EUR 1 331 in 2023). The employer pays the student's salary for all internship months and invoices the School of Business for the internship subsidy after the internship period.
