Business Co-operation at Educational Institutions

Students have potential – harness their skills:

Do you need a temp for a fixed-term project or are you looking for an intern for your company?

There are tens of thousands of young people studying in various higher education institutions (HEIs) of Turku, and their potential is at the service of your company. Hiring a student as an intern means you will get a skillful and enthusiastic employee in your work community. Projects conducted as student group work are an efficient way to get a fresh perspective for your company’s use.

Many students write their pro gradu theses and final projects as commissions from companies. A thesis or final project is a good way to acquire a report or study based on the needs of your business. Possibilities and forms of co-operation are multifold.

Help is available, for example, for

  • developing your organization
  • communications
  • product development
  • translation
  • export and import
  • marketing
  • internationalization
  • strengthening personnel know-how

Korkeakoulukumppani helps businesses in finding and utilizing the know-how and expertise found in Turku’s higher education institutions.  You can make pro gradu thesis commissions and hire student interns and employees via Turku Academic Career Services.
