Metropolia University of Applied Sciences made last year its personal new record in the amount of graduates.
A total of over 2 870 Bachelor and Master graduates were handed a diploma. Previous record in Metropolia was from 2013, the number of graduates being 2 726.
Of the completed qualifications the amount of Bachelor's degrees was 2 544. In particular, engineering and business Bachelor's degree students finished their studies efficiently. From the field of technology more than 1 000 students received their Bachelor's degree and from business nearly 270. Also the number of graduates among foreign students grew briskly over the target, reaching 175 degrees.
"Twenty percent's improvement in the amount of graduates of technology programs is a major achievement. The fine result may partly spring from the general societal knowledge that inspire students to graduate. Employment can be obtained more likely with a diploma than without it," thinks Applications and Business -unit’s Director Antti Piironen.
Nearly 330 Master's degrees were finished, which is also a higher number than ever before in Metropolia. Metropolia offers 26 Master’s degree programs in four different fields; the provision is the widest in Finland.
"We have made use of different networks, both internally and externally as well as improved our thesis processes. Thus, we have been able to redeem our promise to provide our Master’s students a certified degree for their professional careers”, says Antti Piironen.
