Arcada is not part of any entrance exam co-operation.

An applicant can select the online entrance exam as the admission method. This means that the exam is open to all applicants, regardless of where in the world they are currently located.

The online exam can be taken only once and an applicant must complete the test in one sitting, within a set time frame. The entrance exam may consist of sections that test applicants' reading comprehension, math and logical deduction. An applicant who passes the test will receive an offer of admission.

The exam is separate for International Business and Mechanical and Sustainability Engineering. This means that applicants applying to both programmes will need to take two online tests.

Pre-reading material

The online entrance exam will be based on the following pre-reading material: Kesko's Annual Report 2018, Kesko's Direction
