Strategic goal: Laurea is a choice for various stages of a lifelong journey where competence must be renewed and developed as the world changes.

We are flexible and demanding: our students who are already working receive flexible, challenging and perspective-widening education while continuingtheir professional activities, and their background and previous competence supplement the interaction of the entire learner community. For young people enrolling straight after high school, we offer the possibility of connecting to international professional networks and makingtheir dream future come true with major experts from the field. We offer  a high-quality education and enable year-round learning together with our partners.

We guide our students towards working life as responsible and ethical  experts with education and competence to consider the sustainability of solutions, strive for results, produce an impact and cultivate a desire and an ability to think in a human way.

We meet our students here and now. We care. We meet at Laurea campuses in inspiring and modern learning environments. Online, we can be far fromeach other but still present, working on the same issue. All of our personnel produce high-quality student services. Student-centricity and the various study programmes are the core strength of the education we offer.

At Laurea, the teacher embarks upon a journey with the student, guides,  instructs, encourages, advises and supports the student in professional growth. The teacher develops her own work and, together with the students, creates the foundation for new competence through research. The teacher understands the changes of working life, develops and maintains
collaboration. The teacher is present.

At Laurea, the student receives guidance for a lifelong  path that involves continuous renewal of competence and success in face of changes in work life.
