Metropolia starts collaboration with AIEC

12.10.2012

Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Metropolia) and the Association of International Education Consultants (AIEC) have established ties in the form of a memorandum of understanding with the aim of further expanding our international markets and services.

Metropolia and AIEC will ensure that the shared initiative draws from the same cultural and institutional practices that have made Finland a global leader in educational excellence. “We will work with an initiative to build an international gateway to the same depth and quality of educational success that has always been the basis of Metropolia graduate success”, assures development manager Tomi Ropanen from Metropolia Enterprise Solutions.

Metropolia has 14 international degree programmes in English language out of 68 degree programmes and 800 international degree students, who represent more than 90 different nationalities, studying at Metropolia every year. AIEC looks forward to expanding on Metropolia´s existing international educational focus especially into emerging markets.

AIEC is an association of Education Professionals offering expertise globally. AIEC's consultation service covers the complete spectrum of education development, administration, and training. Metropolia will be a key ingredient in strengthening these continued initiatives.
