Each degree programme in Metropolia has an advisory council with representatives not only from the staff and the students but also from working life. In fact one of the tasks of advisory councils is to create and develop degree programmes' connections with working life.
The purpose of advisory councils is to
- act as experts in the development of tasks and operations related to curricula, education and other matters concerning the degree programmes
- create and develop degree programmes' connections with working life
- give statements, if necessary, on matters concerning the degree programmes and their key staff appointments and acquisitions
- make initiatives for the development of operations within the scope of the degree programmes.
The advisory councils can also be assigned with other tasks. Advisory councils serve for a term of three years.
