We educate for the future
At Arcada, we know that it is through the combination of theory and practice that we learn best and how important the Swedish language and digital competence are in working life. We want our students to learn to think critically - a prerequisite for being able to continue to develop in a constantly changing labour market.
Our students study abroad and already during their studies make contacts with leading companies and organizations both here at home and around the world, and perform real assignments on their behalf.
Thanks to our pedagogical expertise and sensitivity to how working life develops - both in Finland and internationally - we can be one step ahead and offer knowledge that paves the way for the future.
Pioneering applied research
The goal of all our research is to identify the problems our world is facing and contribute to sustainable societal development.
We co-produce knowledge with partner institutions, within research networks and with companies and organizations. We never allow ourselves to be limited by traditional industry boundaries and the work takes place at regional, national, Nordic and international level.
That we work close to the surrounding society means that our research benefits the outside world and society.
We encourage entrepreneurship
At Arcada, we have a long tradition of supporting entrepreneurial mindset among our students, regardless of their chosen field. As attractive as a degree from Arcada is in the labour market, many alumni are drawn to the opportunity to start their own business and charting their own future.
The list of alumni who founded companies is constantly growing and they not only lay the foundation for their own continued careers, but create jobs and livelihood opportunities for others.
