Metropolia Stands out from Other Universities of Applied Sciences

07.05.2013

Metropolia is the second best known university of applied sciences in Finland after Haaga-Helia and has a steadily positive image. This was revealed in an image survey of higher education institutions carried out by market research company Taloustutkimus in 2013.

Metropolia is considered a pioneer that stands out from other universities of applied sciences, and its degrees are valued in the labour market. Metropolia also has a positive image in the media and social media. Metropolia’s reputation as a place of study is good. In these categories Metropolia is among the top UASs in Finland.

General recognition of Metropolia has increased steadily over the past five years. Metropolia has slightly more appeal than before to young people as a potential place of study: among UASs, it is the second most popular place to study after Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Those interested in Metropolia mentioned its good reputation as a place of study and the fact that Metropolia's degrees are valued in the labour market as the criteria for their selection.

Taloustutkimus annually conducts a nationwide image survey of higher education institutions, in which it asks peopleaged under 30 to give their opinions of different institutions and on matters related to education. This year the study was carried out in the form of an online survey in February and March. There were around 2,000 participants in the survey.
