The Finnish Business School Graduates actively promotes the quality of business education leading to a degree, and business sciences research. We also focus on skills promotion of business school graduates and on creating opportunities for competence development.
According to our member surveys, our members highly appreciate the work we do for improving the quality of business school education. Acknowledgement of business school graduates and business school education is built on the excellent skills and knowledge of business school students and graduates in working life, and on their ability to keep their skills up-to-date and develop them in an environment of constant change. Keeping up the quality and competitiveness of business school education requires constant measures to develop not only the education system itself but also the contents and methods of business education.
In order to reach our targets in the field of education policy we cooperate widely with, for example, universities, student associations, other labour market organisations and political parties. One of our closest cooperation partners is ABS, Association of Business Schools Finland.
In recent years, we have promoted the quality of business school education by e.g. the following means:
