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

Jonas Tana

Researcher, Arcada

I conduct research on e-health and Arcada is an incredibly exciting environment to work in. Digitalisation is having an increasing impact on social and health care, and it is a good example of an area where, thanks to our willingness to cooperate and the interdisciplinary structure, we can help shape a sustainable development. The students' participation in the research, for example through their degree thesis, means that they both deepen their critical thinking and can contribute to the research with completely new approaches and questions.

Jessica Blechingberg

Operations, the Hub

As an alumnus from Arcada, I have had unbelievably good opportunities to make contacts and build my professional network. Both with students and alumni who represent fields other than my own, which I see as rather unique for Arcada. And also because I had the chance to work with well-established and exciting companies during many of the courses. Being allowed to take on a real project from real clients already during my studies and learn from their feedback and expertise is invaluable. This gave me wholly different insights than I would otherwise have received had I worked solely on hypothetical projects.
