New publication: Metropolia Master´s – Discussions on the development of work life


The University of Applied Sciences Master’s Degree (YAMK) is a degree program intended for people who typically already have a Bachelor’s degree and are currently practicing their profession, but who wish to deepen their professional skills and competences through further studies. Studies in Metropolia Master’s degree programs provide new expert knowledge for tackling, in particular, demanding change and development projects at work.

Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (UAS) is celebrating its tenth year of operation this year. In a new publication – Metropolia Master´s: Discussions on the development of work life (ed. Marjatta Kelo & Elina Ala-Nikkola) – we wish to give the reader a quick glimpse of what kind of Master’s theses have been carried out over the years and what kind of know-how the authors, their work communities, and even entire industries have gained through these theses.

The online publication is built on textual dialogue between Metropolia alumni and experts at Metropolia UAS. In their texts, the alumni first tell about their learning experiences and describe their own thesis. Next to each alumni text is a text by Metropolia expert/s, which serves to expand the perspective of the development project carried out by the alumni and mirrors the content and the significance of the development project to the current state of the field in question. Thus, the dialogue helps create a holistic picture of how Master’s studies linked with work life help the students move forward in their careers as individuals, along with their work communities and the whole industry. In addition, the publication includes also some articles from new Master´s degree programs that no one has graduated from yet.

Metropolia currently has 25 Master’s degree programs of which 14 are presented here. Since we offer degrees both in English and in Finnish, this publication includes texts in both languages ​​- according to the language of instruction.
