Develop your entrepreneurial skills
SAMK has an emphasis on entrepreneurship. The staff’s and students’ entrepreneurship is considered a resource for both the university and for local development. All students have compulsory entrepreneurship studies, which focus on understanding the meaning of entrepreneurship in the employment market and as a general factor promoting employment. In the Enterprise Accelerator the students can develop their own business idea and enterprise.
Get connected with working life
Cooperation with enterprises is an asset for the universities of applied sciences. SAMK has yearly about 300 student projects together with companies and organisations. Cooperation with enterprises gives the studies a practical view. Practical training is a part of all degrees. This means that all SAMK students must find a traineeship of their own field in an institution or a company. In project learning, in practical training and in a summer job the student learns in practice the skills needed at work and also to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired through studies.
