Metropolia Business School international degree programme students complete a Managerial Communication course in their second year which includes a mini group project of their own choosing – worth 25% of the course grade. This spring projects have included organizing World Speech Day, organizing a Wine Tasting event, making a communications video, establishing the social media presence for a company, creating a brochure on non-verbal communication and a Helsinki City Tour booklet, setting up and writing an “Alternative Facts” blog and working for Erasmus Student Network.
One group of four students took on working on the MetroBiz magazine, which contains a collection of articles and interviews of Metropolia Business School’s current issues, events and general interest items. The magazine has been published since September 2014 and this issue is now the tenth.
“The course project allows students to explore an aspect of professional communication according to their development needs and wishes. Students must publish something about their project to an external audience, e.g. an event, website or blog. This MetroBiz issue is a great project outcome. It has always been written by students for students. It was originally coordinated by a project trainee but when we don’t have a trainee, students can take it on as a project”, says senior lecturer Louise Stansfield.
Students behind the 10th magazine are Sheila Surban, Bradley Whipp, Brian Kroner and Joni Tähtinen who all study on the International Business and Logistics degree programme.
“Our main goal was to learn how to write and edit an online magazine. We wanted to deliver a high quality magazine and to demonstrate our skills as writers and magazine editors. Most of us had never written magazine or blog type articles before. Our writing experience has mostly been academic essay style. Many might view the project as too ambitious and perhaps going over and beyond the line of duty for a simple grade from a class. However the magazine was more of a test and practice to make a professional level work that awaits us outside of school. It was a pleasure working together as a team on this ambitious project”, say the students.
