Curriculum of the Degree Programme in Business Management 2007 - 2008
The main aim of the Degree Programme in Business Management is to provide students with skills required in international business. The language of instruction is English and the teaching will intergrate lectures, seminars and workshops. Students are also offered an extensive programme of elective studies, as well as a five-month practical training period.
The studies are designed to focus on developing creativity and improving presentation skills - the skills which we regard as the most important requirements in working life today. Kemi-Tornio Polytechnic recognizes the importance of networking with industry and business as well as with the other polytechnic units, and attempts to incorporate these aspects into the degree programme. Furthermore, the school provides an environment in which students can familiarise themselves with today’s information technology.
An additional strength lies in the geographical proximity of the Russian and Swedish borders, and cooperation with our foreign partner institutions in those countries will play an important role in the implementation of the programme accordingly.
On completion of the degree programme the graduate will have acquired practical and theoretical skills to work in local and global business environments and will be capable of working independently as well as part of a team. Graduates will have developed their communication and crosscultural skills and competence in information technology and in more than one foreign language.
