The School is backed by strong cooperation with the business world: new knowledge created through research is used to reform Finnish industry and promote new forms of business. The school's corporate relations are unique even by international standards: New knowledge generated as the result of the research is being utilised in industrial reform, as well as for new businesses. Our graduates have excellent employment opportunities in a wide variety of business positions. Our research staff act as experts in a wide range of different fields.

We provide companies with contacts, networking events and opportunities for research and educational co-operation. Opportunities for cooperation in the research field extend from research projects and programmes to large scale infrastructure cooperation. In the field of education, there are opportunities to host course visits, instruct theses creation and student projects and much more.
