Asia is an important focus area for Metropolia’s international partnerships. Through its presence at Expo 2010 Shanghai, Metropolia wishes to boost its image of Finland’s biggest multidisciplinary university of applied sciences and to broaden its international cooperation with Chinese and other Asian higher education institutes and businesses.
