Welcome to study to the Degree Programme in Industrial Management 2022!

First day programme and notes

The assumption for this note is that the classes can be given as normal contact teaching with possible hybrid (contact/online) implementations. Please check the latest situation from this page as changes may take place. In case it is not possible to have contact sessions you will receive information on the arrangements for Teams or Zoom sessions.

The opening day will take place on Thursday 8th September 2022 at 9:00 – 16:00 at Metropolia Karamalmi campus.

The studies will also start the same week.

It is highly recommended for all to come to hear introductions, tour buildings and facilities etc. During the first day you will get instructions on how to activate your computer account, which is vital to get access to learning materials etc., and to make communication possible.

Activating your user account:

In order to be able to use Metropolia’s it services (email, OMA…) you have to activate your account. The primary procedure of activation is based on a Finnish netbank user ID and its identification process. If you don’t have these, please contact me by email and I will deliver the details of your account on paper.

See and follow the instructions.

If you are not familiar with financial aspects of business, it is recommended that you will review for example Accounts Demystified by Anthony Rice, or similar concerning financial accounting in advance.

If you have any questions related to admission the contact point is the admission services (admissions [at] metropolia.fi). After you are admitted the contact point for official matters is the student affairs office (studentservices [at] metropolia.fi). Normally the study programme / teachers can’t help in official matters. Please be careful with deadlines and all the instructions you get, in the summertime special arrangements are not likely to be done. Check the opening hours from Metropolia web site.

Once again: Congratulations - Have a nice summer and looking forward to see you in September!
