The resource-efficient business research group of Turku University of Applied Sciences offers possibilities for collaboration with companies for students from various fields. Instead of lectures we want to offer interesting and practical ways for a student to become a responsible and self-imposed expert in his/her own field.
In case you would be interested to join us or you have any questions, please contact us.
Students can do many kinds of studies in the team’s project learning environment, projects and courses. Students gain credits, knowhow and business contacts. All together the team generates appr. 3000 credits a year.
We offer the following modules:
All of the courses are offered via the Open university also
