International Business Study Modes

8-16 and 18-100 Study Modes This theory is supported by practice which forms the basis of the University of Applied Sciences studies. The Degree Programme in International Business provides a flexible combination of theory and practice to prepare you for an international career. The main method used in teaching is learning-by-doing. A student centred focus is predominant in the degree programme, and to support this we offer the 8-16 (full-time) and 18-100 (part time) study modes: 8-16: The student will study each day between the hours of 8-16, and will accumulate credits on a weekly basis. The student will receive guidance and support throughout their study period, and will work together in teams/groups that will simulate the workplace environment.. 18-100: The student will have contact lessons approximately once a month in the Friday evenings and on Saturdays. Teaching method will be close to flipped class room so that the student is able to combine his daily work into given assignments. The study method requires independence as well as the capability of working in teams.

Double Degree Opportunities

International Business Degree Programme currently has five double degree partners in three countries and we are continually working to increase this. Studying for a double degree means that your third year of study will be conducted at the partner university, and after completion, you would receive two Bachelor Degrees; one from HAMK and one from the partner University. This is a marvellous opportunity to improve your international competences and it makes you so much more attractive to employers when job hunting.
