YIT Studies BBA programme launched in autumn 2017

The YIT Studies BBA programme was launched on Thursday 16 November 2017 at the construction company YIT’s headquarters; it is a follow-up for the YIT Studies programme. The opportunity for Haaga-Helia and Metropolia students to combine studies with work was launched with YIT for the first time.

14 business and information technology BBA students have been selected for the programme; two of them study in Metropolia and the rest in Haaga-Helia. BBA students have many strengths which are useful at the work place: these include IT competence, language and communication skills and economic understanding.
One of the students starting in the programme is Sofia Andersin studying in the management assistant and languages degree programme, and her work-based training will take place in the Tripla site. “I am looking forward to new challenges and being able to apply my learning in practical work,” she says.

Sari Hagelberg, coordinating the programme at YIT, is equally excited about the programme. “We are looking for a boost from gaining different kinds of skills. The students, on the other had, get to experience how their education can be applied in practice. We hope to have a win-win situation in which both parties benefit.
