It is worth putting an effort on the traineeship that is a part of University of Applied Sciences (UAS) studies as it may be a pathway to finding a job. This is how things worked out for Miina Portti, who graduated from SAMK as a Bachelor of Hospitality Services in spring 2016.
– The Bachelors of Hospitality Management who graduate from SAMK have a wide understanding of the systems and basic structures of the field. Also fellow students and the teachers remain as positive memories, tells Miikka Valo who works with international congresses and events for Visit Espoo.
In the autumn 2017 Bulgarian Vaklin Angelov started studying at SAMK in the English language Industrial Management engineering program. – The studies have met with my expectations. Various contact and feedback systems work well, which is important, because the studying is mainly online using different electronic systems.
