3AMK is an abbreviation of a strategic partnership of three Universities of applied Sciences in Helsinki Metropolian area.


Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia Universities of Applied Sciences have launched initiatives to deepen their partnership. The institutions have began developing measures to promote student mobility and entrepreneurship education and help create easy-access programmes for innovation between higher education institutions and SMEs in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

In addition, there are collaboration efforts aimed at leveraging global funding channels for research and other projects more efficiently than before and creating Finland's largest cluster for education exports in the UAS sector. There are currently four development projects under way.

The partnership draws from each institution's unique educational profile and identity. The Helsinki metropolitan area needs higher education institutions with distinctive profiles that respond to the region's skill needs. To this end, the institutions are focusing on a strategic partnership that will benefit both students and employers.

The four development projects are:

  • Student mobility, transition to working life and progress of studies
  • Professional Summer School
  • Innovation, entrepreneurship and labor market cooperation
  • Education export
  • EduExellence
  • Research & Development
