Main results of the year 2014

The year 2014 was a challenging year of important changes and reforms. The year was also a new beginning to the university of applied sciences. Metropolia heads to new kind, competence-based culture with an active influential role in the society.

Metropolia is the largest university of applied sciences in Finland by both the number of students and the number of applicants.

Over 2 600 students graduated from Metropolia to the working life of the metropolitan area and the whole Finland.

Metropolia´s projects in research, development and innovation gain a great amount of visibility in the media. For example the UPM and Metropolia collaboration Biofore Concept Car received a lot ot attention and prizes.

Last year Metropolia attended actively the discussion of higher education policy in Finland.

Metropolia employed 1 076 employers of which teachers cover 64 percent. The amount of the employers diminished last year with 84 persons.

The financial result exceeded the targets.

For the future development it is essential that Metropolia focuses the activities to four campuses Arabianranta, Leppävaara, Myllypuro and Myyrmäki.

This year the annual report is a concise synopsis of last year including the reviews of the Managing Director, President and Chairman of the Board, key figures in infografs and financial statements.
