Alumni Ambassador's story: Oskar Vahervuori

“In the 1980s, the studies and academic life were separate from the business world, which was a disappointment for me.

There are so many good things going on at the campus, and it seems to me like they have Slush every day”, says our alumnus Oskar Vahervuori.
