Master’s degree

The second-cycle / Master’s degree programmes offered at the universities of applied sciences aim at deepening the professional competence and expertise you will need in a job. The degrees can be completed while working and they are equal to other Finnish Master’s degrees, and give the same qualifications as them.

You can apply for a Master’s degree programme if you have a relevant higher education degree and at least three years of work experience in the field, obtained after completing the degree. You can apply through the joint application system and the extent of studies varies between 60 and 90 credits, depending on the extent of the Bachelor’s degree.

Each Master’s degree programme is field-specific, e.g. BBA’s do their Master’s studies in the field of Social Sciences, Business and Administration. The studies consist of advance studies, optional studies and a thesis. The thesis (30 cr) is a usually a development or research project for students own organisation and/or personal professional interest.

Continuing education

Master’s degree is the main postgraduate education after Bachelor’s degree but you can build up your competence also with some other continuing education.

Continuing education offers opportunities to deepen and update your knowledge. All our education and training are based on topical professional themes. You can enrol on our courses without any basic training. We can also create continuing education courses for defined target groups based on the client’s requirements.
