All teachers have a professional background from business and IT industries. Laurea continuously co-operates with industry partners (AWS, FISC, Hoxhunt, Insta, Loihde, Microsoft, Nixu, Nokia, Palo Alto Networks, PwC and Splunk) to bring in the latest competencies and technologies into our courses. Workplace collaboration has a very important role at Laurea, and the BIT programme was developed in close cooperation with our partners in the business world.
The programme is composed of compulsory core competencies, complementary competencies, job placements and final project/thesis.
This programme utilizes online studies associated with a possibility for campus-based counselling sessions or seminars. Studies are designed to meet the needs of students who prefer distance learning or want to achieve BBA degree while working. This programme is particularly suitable for students who want to study independently, efficiently, and independent of time or place. Despite the independence in studies and flexibility, studies require daily work.
You will have clear contact points during your studies. The study unit responsible teachers support your learning process in individual study units and your personal tutor teacher helps you plan your studies. The support and counselling processes apply modern asynchronous and synchronous online communication tools depending on the issue or topic being discussed. Additionally, you can have special support (e.g. health care or career services) if the issue cannot be solved with the study unit teachers or your personal tutor teacher.
You will study remotely with the opportunity to interact with teachers, staff, and other students by using modern interactive online learning and communication platforms. Online webinars, workshops and possible campus-based counselling sessions are typically organized at the evenings Finnish time (GMT+2) between 15:00 and 18:00 o’clock
You can become a student regardless where you live: in Finland, EU, or any other country in the world. Note, that if you are admitted, you will need to participate in a mandatory 3-day kick-off period on our campus in Espoo, Finland. If you’re not able to participate on our campus in Espoo, we offer the possibility to join the orientation virtually (using zoom / teams). We still highly recommend everyone to join the orientation on our campus since this is a good opportunity to meet and network with other students.
Estimated workload is about 25 hours per week at minimum. During studies, you will get to apply diverse learning methods including videos, e-books, articles, webinars, discussions, multiple choice questions, essays, hands-on training and project work.
The programme is designed to be completed in three to three and a half years. However, it is possible to speed up the studies and graduate in two years.
Laurea has flexible RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) procedures in place. In practice, if you already have a degree, previous work-experience on BBA level jobs or IT related certificates, you will have the chance of compensating part of the programme with credit transfers or competence demonstrations, effectively allowing you to speed-up your study time.
