Support tomorrow's heroes

When we're young, we all have dreams. Dreams about growing up and becoming heroes. Heroes who save lives, help people, work for our environment, start new companies or discover and invent new things.

On the road to adulthood, our dreams may take on new shapes. But what doesn't change is the fact that we want to make a difference.

Our mission at Arcada is to create the best possible conditions for our youngsters to turn their dreams into reality.

Stories from Arcada

Nico Larsen

Co-founder of Hailer, owner/board member of Lamor Corporation

That the future is digital was a fact that Arcada had already realised when I studied business administration in the early 2000s, and it has been a great benefit to me in my career. I also appreciate the way the studies focus on learning by doing and take place in such close collaboration with working life. In my eyes, Arcada has always been a modern university of applied sciences; one that has not become mired in the past, but rather thinks anew and looks to the future.

Johanna Stenback

Producer and entrepreneur

Arcada is the most important building block in the foundations of my career. The students' association TLK, the Student Union ASK (which I was involved in setting up), and my media education gave me both experience and networks that I use every day. For me, Arcada is a creative and innovative university of applied sciences that does not shrink from new challenges and high ambitions. I have also brought this with me to my work as producer and entrepreneur.
