Why Should You Apply and Who Should Apply?

According to EIA 2018 and 2019 participants from Tampere university community:

You’ll learn about the global economy and get contacts and network around you.

All that knowledge and theory has to be applied in practice and make results from those in 15 days. That was one of the reasons I applied and it came true.

Do it! There isn’t any better way to learn than this intensive course in which you really do the things and get global mindset at once.

Whoever who wants to take a leap of faith. You’ll learn about the environment, and it challenges you to do something that you haven’t tried before or even intended to do.

Whoever who really wants to try out international activities. Go for it!

You should definitely be motivated. It’s hard, 10 hours a day but we didn’t lose the motivation.
