Tone of voice

We are an energizing partner. This promise is reflected in all our actions and in the way Metropolia's people communicate; in speeches, gestures and text. Our promise is that we will be easy and straightforward to approach. Our way of speaking is informal, empathetic and encouraging, while being honest and clear. We express ourselves in an understandable and clear way, and we do not hide our message behind professional language. We communicate openly and vividly, inspiring more and more people, communities and businesses to work with us.

Closeness to people, courage and the joy of insight also distinguish us in communication from many other actors in the field. We are proud of our expertise and make it visible in our way of speech. We are particularly proud that our expertise benefits students, customers, stakeholders and society.
