Welcome to another monthly coverage!
3AMK’s fall has started very well with new employees and a lot of new exciting ideas for the future. In the beginning of August a new development manager Katja Kuuramaa started and at the end of August a new communications intern Iina Salomäki stated.
Studies for this fall have already started as well, tough there are still a couple of intensive courses that are open for enrollment. At the moment we are doing preparations for the spring studies, for which the enrollment period starts 28.11.
Summer School got excellent feedback from students
The Master’s degree intensive course Leadership Skills for a Changing World was highly successful and got a lot of praises from the students. This year some of the main topics of the course were leading a cultural change and inclusive management. The course had students from all over Europe.
”This course has been one of the best I have attended. A lot of practical knowledge and easy to understand concepts.”
“Practical course that gives real tools to work with and at the same time enjoyable atmosphere within the group work. Also the possibility for networking is really great!”
In August there was also a successful course for the personnel about Business Finland funding. The course brought together almost 30 participants and different local businesses to discuss applying for a Business Finland funding. In the course the participants were taught about different funding models of Business Finland as well as how the application processes work.
New changes in the studies
3AMK’s Moodle-page has been taken down, and in the future 3AMK studies will use the universities own platforms. With this change we can utilize the ever developing platforms of the universities efficiently and make the students’ life a bit easier.
During this fall the studies open for open UAS students will be developed further. In August a sequel for Junes open UAS vision workshop was held, and there were a lot of new great ideas that can be used in the future. In this fall one learning lane was open for open UAS students. It had so many enrolled students from open UAS, that all of them couldn’t be fitted to all three courses in the learning lane. Fortunately all of them got to attend at least some courses from the learning lane. Hopefully in the future more places can be opened for the open UAS students.
Educational export to China
EduExcellence and Chinese AIEI have worked together for a long time in order to offer a Finnish eMBA continuing education program in China. In August an official opening ceremony for the co-operation was held in Shenzhen China. Haaga-Helia’s eMBA in Service Excellence is the first eMBA program in China offered by a Finnish university. EMBA is internationally a high standing degree that many universities around the world offer.
