Graduand feedback questionnaire: Metropolia has the best UAS-level business education

23.03.2017

Metropolia Business School has received Finland's best results in categories teaching and studying in a nationwide AVOP-questionnaire in its comparison group (business, administration, law, service sectors).

AVOP - Graduand feedback questionnaire asks graduating students of Finnish universities of applied sciences (UAS) to evaluate and provide feedback on their education. The findings are used locally by institutions to improve their institutional processes and practices and nationally to inform performance-based monitoring and funding.

In the teaching-category the average of the comparison group was 4.98 on a scale 1-7; Metropolia Business School’s average was 5.28. For instance Metropolia’s teachers’ expertise and teaching materials got excellent feedback from the students.

In the studying-category corresponding figures were 5.56 (Finnish comparison group) and 5.84 (Metropolia Business School). Within this category Metropolia was praised for encouraging students' active participation in learning situations, treating the students equally and fairly as well as for carrying out the studies interactively.

Metropolia educates business professionals on a Bachelor- and a Master’s degree level.
A Bachelor's degree can be obtained from a Finnish degree programme of Business Administration as well as from programmes of European Business Administration and International Business and Logistics, both which are conducted in English. A Master's degree can be completed in Finnish in the degree programmes of Business development and Procurement, and in English in the degree programmes of Business Informatics and Health Business Management.

"The questionnaire results are delightful news for us. Student feedback has a great importance; on the basis of the feedback we have done long-term development of teaching and learning. We are particularly pleased that the students appreciate the level of the teaching and consider the learning environment to be motivating and collaborative. These results inspire us also to further develop our operations", says Minna Hautamäki, Head of Department of International Business.

The AVOP- questionnaire has been developed in close cooperation with the Rectors' Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (ARENE), the Union of Students in Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (SAMOK), Foundation for Research on Studying and Education (OTUS) and the Ministry for Education and Culture.
