BusinessAcademy - Visit us and learn new ways of coaching your students!

BusinessAcademy (BA) is an innovative and entrepreneurial learning environment in Turku University of Applied Sciences. Team Coaches are Senior Advisors / Professional Business Mentors who coach the students in business and entrepreneurship.

In BusinessAcademy learning is based on working in business and joint projects, not forgetting theoretical learning.

The BusinessAcademy learning path covers the theoretical learning process using training sessions and book circles. The learning agreement reflects the student´s learning process. The teams are able to deepen their learning by personalizing their learning path and by applying theory to the real-life projects at the same time.

Students graduate with excellence in business as well as entrepreneurial, innovation and teamwork competences and they are a true asset to working life.

BA Visits are offered in Finnish, Swedish, English and French.
