The content of the degree programme

The Degree Programme in Service Business Management offers a broad education, focusing on the core skills needed in the workplace. Depending on your future employment plans and your own interests, you have different study options to choose from.

The degree programme is designed to include core competence studies, which are obligatory for all students, as well as complementary studies. Complementary studies are electives that let you choose what to focus on in greater detail.

What are the studies like?

At Laurea, business students can choose from several study paths, such as digital marketing and sales, management accounting or entrepreneurship. Your IT skills will develop during your studies and you will learn to use several business software packages. Service business skills, including service design thinking and tools, are also included in your studies.

Laurea follows the Learning by Developing (LbD) model in its activities. This can take the form of, for example, a real business development project, involving a group of students. During the project, students improve their interaction, scheduling, performance and reporting skills as well as other skills needed in the workplace. These projects have received a great deal of positive feedback from employers.

Companies and organisations are invited to develop the degree programme. They describe the skills and knowledge they find to be important at the time, and these are taken into account in degree programme development. This helps companies ensure that the students are suitable for employment straight after graduation.
