Are you interested in developing your competences through a programme that emphasizes both theoretical knowledge and practical skills? Are you looking for an opportunity to advance your existing career or embark on a new one? If so, then this is the programme for you!
The Master’s Programme in International Business Management is 90 ECTS with studies that last for either 1,5 years (full-time studies) or 3 years (part-time studies), which allows for studying alongside full-time employment. All students study a general knowledge course module, and can then choose between two unique tracks – Nordic markets and Financial technology.
Please note that master students are not entitled to study-related social benefits such as discount tickets for HSL, VR or Matkahuolto unless you are a member of the student union ASK. However, the Kela Meal Subsidy Card is granted to all degree students. More detailed information about these discounts is found in Arcadas study guide.
Arcada is the only University of Applied Sciences in Finland with a master’s degree programme in English which focuses on the Nordic business environment. If you or your employer view the Nordic market as an interesting opportunity for personal or business growth, then this degree is what you are looking for. The Nordic business environment is a natural context for Finnish companies to either start or to develop their international business activities.

Fintech refers to technology-enabled financial services applied to a range of areas, such as payments, deposits, lending, insurance, market provisioning, capital raising and investment management.
