Master Degree Programmes at Laurea

A Master's degree is for you if you already have a Bachelor's degree or some other suitable higher education qualification and at least three years of work experience after graduation. A Master's degree will deepen and expand your competence and also give you eligibility for roles where a postgraduate degree is required.

The scope of the studies is 90 credits, and you can complete the degree while working in about 1.5–2.5 years. On average, the studies comprise three days of face-to-face instruction a month, in addition to which there will be distance-learning assignments and online studies. The schedules for the degree programmes are drawn up 18 months in advance, so when you are applying you will already know the dates of all face-to-face instruction days in the programme.

Laurea offers 12 Master's degree programmes, two of programmes are taught in English.  Strong links have been forged between the programmes, which gives you a possibility of networking with a large group of experts representing different fields. Joint face-to-face instruction days on the Leppävaara and Tikkurila campuses and the shared online learning environment encourage encounters between students in different fields. There are over 700 students in Laurea's Master's degree programmes. Two of the programmes are taught in English, and some of the students in these come from outside Finland.

In various quality assessments, links between learning and research, development and innovation, the working-life orientation of the programmes, and the extensive networks of stakeholders have been highlighted as the strengths of Laurea's Master's degree programmes.

The studies comprise 30 credits of programme-specific core competence, which is continuously being updated to match future competence needs in the relevant field. The core competence is supplemented by Laurea's joint offer of complementary studies, in which you can select 30 credits of management and development studies as indicated by your personal needs. You can also pick your elective studies from the core studies of other programmes. You can write your thesis (30 credits) under supervision in Laurea's research and development projects, or you can develop the practices of your own work organisation.
