Connecting to the working life during the studies

Degree Programme in Inter­na­tional Business

I am currently doing an internship in a company here in Joensuu. I am very grateful to the university for allowing me to connect with the company. Thanks to the knowledge learned in classes I have a suffi­cient foundation to start my internship in the field of sales and marketing.

Time flies so fast! It has been more than 2 years since I said “bye-bye” to my beloved Saigon city and went to a new country to study and achieve my goals. The first days in Finland were full of different and even surprising things. The weather, the language, every­thing, was new at first. I was born and raised in a densely populated city, where life is busy and rushed. Since moving to Joensuu, it has completely changed. Joensuu is a quiet and peaceful city and I cherish the time here. I have a space to think and slow down to love more and immerse myself in nature.

The lectures and knowledge that I receive from the teachers are the keys to help me to orientate towards the career that I want to do in the future. 

For me, the choice to study abroad in Karelia UAS was an coinci­dence and oppor­tunity that God bestowed on me. I am grateful that my family allowed me to follow my dream and become an inter­na­tional student in Joensuu, Finland. Thank you, Karelia University of Applied Sciences, teachers, and friends for accom­pa­nying me in my days of studying and improving my skills
