We carry out study projects in cooperation with businesses and our partner universities. Through us, it is also possible to get a trainee or a thesis author for your project. When needed, we can also utilize Metropolia’s multidisciplinary know-how and bring along experts from technical, cultural, healthcare and social services disciplines.

We are in the process of expanding the range of our projects. Combining business know-how with pedagogical expertise and international networks is among our special strengths.

Working in collaboration with students is our goal. At the moment, we are especially interested in the following areas:

  • diversity management,
  • logistics and procurement,
