“If you relate to a place where you are around a mixture of people and cultures, Metropolia Business School will feel like home to you. You learn from a New Yorker about marketing, a Californian about finance, communications from a British lady – it is a global learning experience. This course builds your teamwork and group thinking skills – it makes you a collaborator.”
Scott, Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Logistics
“At Metropolia, we had the opportunity to real practical studies, which facilitate you to memorize, learn and understand all the theory. You get to experience in practice what the patient actually feels and this makes it much more effective way of studying. Good facilities and databases for studies, and both teachers and other students were helpful and easy to talk to.” 
Samitha, Bachelor’s Degree in Physiotherapy (On-demand Education)
“Metropolia has an excellent international ambience. The programme is advanced and touches on relevant areas like digital marketing, integrative project management, and business analytics, giving a strong foundation to deal with practical business challenges. My biggest take-away was our study trip to Stuttgart that gave me a real feel of the transformation in Industry 4.0 and brought me close friendships with my peers.” 
Sudhindra, Master’s Degree in Business Informatics
