Obligatory intensive research period starts on Jan 11!

Dear 2nd year IB degree students,

The 3-week intensive research period, which is continuation of your Thesis-Part 1 course, starts on Monday, Jan 11. The sessions aim to start your thesis process by developing your research plans. In order to earn your 5 ECTS from Thesis-Part 1 course, you must deliver a research plan that will be approved by your supervisor during the 3rd week of this period.

Each student must attend sessions of one of the research lines (see schedules in the attached). Make your choice based on your interest for thesis and go to your first session next week!

If you target to attend the research line of “economics of internationalization and competitiveness”, note that it is now merged with the research line of “marketing management”. Hence, your first session will be on Monday, Jan 11, starting at 10:15 at classroom FK14.

We look forward to see you in our research line sessions!

‘Day at Work’ for International Degree Students: Friday 20.03.2015 Sign Up NOW!

The purpose of the ‘Day at Work’ is to introduce international degree students from the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK University of Applied Sciences and companies in Central Finland to each other. In practice, this means that you , as a student, will make a one day visit (10.00-15.00) to the company.

By participating, you can showcase your own skills and share the day’s experiences on social media. The day may include different activities according to the wishes of the company, for example:

  • Small talk in a foreign language
  • Sharing information about your culture
  • Commenting on brochure materials and web pages

We hope to get enough companies to be able to offer this opportunity to all the registered students, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that. Please note that all the companies may not be situated in the city of Jyväskylä. You will get details about the company you were chosen to visit in the beginning of March.

Day at Work -company participants will donate money through Taksvärkki Ry for international charity work.
