Business Management (MBA)

Master’s Degree in Business Administration (90 credits)

Seinäjoki University of Applied Scieces offers a Master programme in International Business Management in cooperation with Centria University of Applied Sciences.

Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences has strong co-operation with its international key partners: University of Appilied Sciences Aschaffenburg (Germany) and University of Missouri, St Louis (USA). The co-operation consists of attending courses at these universities and welcoming visiting lecturers for example.

Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences along with its academic partners from SeAMK and St. Louis Missouri, also co-operate to organise first International Summer School together.

The programme aims to provide training for specialist and management tasks in businesses that operate internationally. The Master’s degree is implemented on a two-year time scale.

The second-cycle (Master’s) degree taken at a university of applied sciences is a second-cycle degree in the European higher education system and gives the same qualification for municipal and state office as a Master’s degree taken at a university.

You are eligible if you have a higher education degree completed in Finland or a higher education degree in the field of study completed outside Finland. You also need to have at least three years of work experience after the higher education degree.
