“My decision of studying at Haaga Campus is probably one of the best I have made in my life. As a foreign student in Finland, the study environment and the internationalism in the study scope were something I particularly treasured. The degree programme excelled me in presentation, project management and team working skills. Being an entrepreneur, I realised that the education and support I received provided me a steady foundation to start my career. I would recommend without hesitation anyone to pursue this degree programme and receive a Bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management.”
"I have maintained a close relationship with Haaga-Helia even after graduation. I also got the primary introduction with my current employer via Haaga while still working in Finland.
My recommendation for the students aiming for an international career is to take each and every opportunity to go abroad during the studies: internships, exchange programme, competitions all help in building the network which will help you find and land a position abroad. Hospitality is growing on a global scale and continues to offer possibilities to experience different cultures and destinations, whereas many other industries suffer and must undergo drastic changes.
I have never regretted my choice to work in this field and Haaga-Helia offers the best possible education for it in Finland!"
