What is the BBA degree all about?

The degree programme in International Business, or DIB as we call it, is intended for both Finnish and international students wishing to seek interesting career paths in innovative international business, sales and marketing, management or entrepreneurship. The programme emphasises interaction within a multicultural learning environment and encourages initiative, interaction and innovation.

The programme develops the students’ skills to assess the differences between national, organisational and occupational cultures. You learn by participating lectures and discussions, doing group works, keeping presentations, taking part in different projects and case studies and visiting companies. Many of the courses are delivered in co-operation with visiting lecturers from foreign partner universities. The close co-operation with work life makes it possible for students to put theory into practice. Studies include practical training, which enables students to network with work life in Finland and abroad.

Content of studies – The skills that will help you to achieve your dream

The programme focuses on developing various skills required in the field of innovative international business. You will learn to draft international sales and marketing plans and how to implement, co-ordinate and control them. You will learn how to create, develop and maintain profitable customer relationships. The programme also includes international marketing management, which enables you to conduct analyses, international market surveys and formulate market-entry strategies. Studies also include courses in IT, HRM, management and accounting. The graduates adopt an approach that is based on demand and user- oriented innovativeness, which make it possible or them to work in project duties with innovative, initiative-oriented and developmental approach.

Learn by doing

A big part of international business studies are real life-projects that students conduct to local and international companies as part of their course studies. Go-to market plans for companies such as Dorent Ltd, Oikian Ltd or Uros Ltd have allowed students to show their skills to company representatives. To enhance their knowledge of organizing an international conference our students have actively helped local company Printocent in organizing international seminars. At Oamk you will be able to use your skills and knowledge already during the studies.

Internationalism

Students are encouraged to participate in a student exchange period in one of the partner institutions and also to carry out a practical training period abroad.
Students will also have an opportunity to apply to a Double Degree programme at partner university. In Double Degree programme students spend part of their studies in partner institution and will receive a degree diploma from both higher education institutions once they graduate from Oamk.

Versatile study possibilities to make your degree unique

Once accepted as a degree student, it is pretty much up to you what your BBA diploma will look like. Of course there are compulsory courses you must take, but there are also many possibilities for you to choose something extra into your degree that will make you and your expertise stand out from other job seekers once you graduate.

One of these great opportunities is Business Kitchen. Business Kitchen is the universities' entrepreneurship hub - a community and co-working space to boost action and discover new opportunities in business and life. In Business Kitchen students get to solve real world challenges and put theories in practice as well as various activities, programmes and events to support new business creation.

These are just the tip of the iceberg of what we at Oamk have to offer to for our students.
