December 9, 2022

ISB Dean Kevin Manninen with busines studentThis week on Finlandia Fridays, marketing and management professor Kevin Manninen stopped by to talk about Finlandia’s International School of Business (ISB) and an upcoming internship opportunity for Finlandia students.

Following an announcement earlier this week, the Ponsse Einari Vidgrén Foundation Internship application period is now open. The internship, exclusive to Finlandia students, features two to three weeks each spent at Ponsse North America in Rhinelander, Wisconsin and Ponsse Plc headquarters in Vieremä, Finland, in May and June 2023.

With virtually all Finlandia students completing internships and an associated FinnU project before graduation, Manninen shines a spotlight on just how valuable those professional connections and experiences are by sharing news of recent offers extended to multiple senior business majors.

Manninen, who serves as Dean of Finlandia’s International School of Business, also explores the many degree pathways available at Finlandia, including Accounting, Healthcare Management, International Business, Management and Entrepreneurship, Sports Management, and Marketing.
