Alumni stories

On video Maria Servandez shares her career story.


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. In addition, I managed to build a solid network along my studies, many of my schoolmates became my dearest colleagues and peers in the industry today.  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. One of the greatest assets I got from there was the introduction with my former employer which gave the expertise and network to become an entrepreneur, another decision that was a lot easier as we actually went through the process of founding a company during the courses.

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 and 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!
