Arcada offers a truly international experience
More than 50 percent of the International Business students are non-Finnish, which contributes to a wealth of perspectives. Teachers with a diverse and international background, as well as visiting lecturers from partner universities and business schools abroad, ensure that the teaching is state of the art.
What is more, our students in Business Administration (in Swedish) and International Business (in English) co-operate actively during their studies.
