International Project Week (IPW) took place at Metropolia Myyrmäki Campus 16 - 20 March.

IPW gathered together 170 students from Metropolia Business School and 15 guest lecturers from Metropolia Partner Universities around Europe. The Project Week's theme was Business Ethics. On the very first day, guest lecturers, students, and Metropolia Business School's staff were honored to hear a speech from Gregory Elphinston, Nokia, who summarized the Business Ethics in the following words: take responsibility of your own actions, no matter what a person's position in a company is.

The students were divided into 14 small groups and they were dealing with the different themes in the field of Business Ethics, for example: Ethical issues in Advertising, Sport Ethics, Intercultural Business Communication and Ethics in Negotiation.
