Experience Finland this summer tuition free at Haaga-Helia.

The Finnish University,  Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, is offering two Finlandia students a full waiver to attend their summer school to learn business principles and experience Finland through engaging social programming.

“If students want to start their own business someday, this is the perfect opportunity for them to go and get international experience,” said Director of Global Initiatives Cathleen Fuller. “They have a program called the startup school whose key purpose is to teach student how to start and run their own business.”

The startup school program focuses on three levels of business ownership. The first level aims at helping students who have an idea for a business, but haven’t realized all the details. The second level focuses on individuals who have a young business and need help with aspect such as sustainable business plan and the third helps students who have a business and need assistance with aspects such as strategic planning for the future.

“The students are going to go to Finland and get a completely different perspective of business,” said Fuller.

In addition to gaining unparalleled experience from the startup school students will have a strong focus on the topics of service, sales and entrepreneurship.

The summer school will run four weeks through July and August. The two student recipients of the full waiver will have tuition and dorm room accommodations covered. It will be the students’ responsibility to pay for the summer school application fee of 100 euro ($113), food and airfare.

Students interested in this unique opportunity can contact Cat Fuller at cathleen.fuller@finlandia.edu. The deadline for submission is March 30.
