Studying in the programme
Each EMBA Turku group comprises of up to 25 students, representing several industries, functions, age groups and cultural backgrounds. A group might include CEO's, managers, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs and doctors and the typical EMBA student has several years of experience in demanding management or specialist position. The common feature of our participants is their willingness to learn more and a keen desire to develop themselves.

Participants contribute their varied experience and diverse perspectives to the programme. The students are willing to share their knowledge and experience and to learn with and from fellow students. Networking is an important part of the EMBA programme and future careers, and it also creates business opportunities within the group.​

The classroom activities in the EMBA Turku programme are interactive, promoting inspiring discussions. Various learning methods are used, ranging from lecturing, group work, workshops, cases, debates, and company visits to reading lists, assignments, and thesis work.

​​We make available to our students the expertise of top national and international academics and business people who work at the forefront of global business research and in global business. These experts are highly motivated and committed to sharing their knowledge and experience with the participants in the EMBA Turku programme.

The foreign study trips included in the programme broaden the participants' perspectives on business, deepen their understanding on the globalising business environment and enhance their skills they will require to lead international operations.
The versatile personal assignments included in the programme ensure that the knowledge and skills acquired through study are instantly applied for the benefit of the student's organisation. The participant can bring to the table a critical reflection of the current state of affairs, and will have consulted with experts and fellow students on problematic areas to offer an unparalleled source of insight into organisational development.
The thesis process forms an essential part of the EMBA programme. The aim of the thesis work is to resolve a current, practical business challenge, preferably in the student’s own organisation. Theories and results from academic research are used as analysis tools as well as sources for ‘lessons learned’ and fresh perspectives. In the process, the students not only gain expertise in the chosen topic but also enhance their analytical skills and hone their writing, reporting, and communication abilities.
