Course type: compulsory
The work placements are completed in business-related tasks in a for-profit company or a non-profit organization/NGO in Finland or abroad, or as an entrepreneur in the student’s own company (an official business ID is required, that is to say, it must be a registered company).
The work placement module is typically divided into 15 ECTS Basic Work Placement and 15 ECTS Specialisation Work Placement, the latter relating to the chosen Major Specialisation. There is also the option to complete both work placements at once as a 30 ECTS Combination Work Placement. On the other hand, if the student wishes to complete the work placements in smaller components, the work placement module can be completed 5 ECTS at a time. The work can be full-time or part-time.
The work placement tasks need to be pre-approved by the Basic Work Placement Coordinator or the Specialisation/Combination Work Placement Coordinator.
