Our Vison and Goals

The cooperation between BusinessAcademy and the entire entrepreneurship ecosystem in the region is close. The University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, Turku Region Development Centre, Potkuri, the Federation of Finnish Enterprises in Southwest Finland and Boost are a part of our everyday activities.

Of foreign cooperation partners, we work together actively with the universities of Cambridge, Mondragon and Valencia. At the request of both parties, the cooperation is constantly tightening. Head of Education and Research Jaana Kallio-Gerlander has visited or cooperated with the abovementioned higher education institutions in terms of student and teacher exchanges and research projects. Professor in entrepreneurship Joanna Mills from the University of Cambridge has also visited Turku, acting as an expert on the change of the entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Turku region. Developing BusinessAcademy into a key role in the region is also under discussion.

Cooperation with Japan will strengthen along with the agreement made with Miyagi University. Regular visiting professors come every other year from Spain, Japan and the Netherlands. We are a pioneer in entrepreneurship learning environments both in the region and abroad.
