New business development programme offers a unique learning experience in the Baltic countries


BDPro is a six-month programme focusing on promoting cross-border activity and developing new business opportunities and networks around and between north-west Russia, the Baltic countries and Scandinavia alongside its excellent executive education content.

The University of Turku’s Brahea Centre for Training and Development and TSE exe – Turku School of Economics Executive Education and Development at the University of Turku have launched a new business development programme BDPro – Your Journey to Innovation and Growth. The programme was planned as a part of the EuroFaculty-Pskov project.
