Anton Vorozheikin is an International Business graduate from Kajaani University of Applied Sciences. He finished his studies ahead of time in three years “Finishing studies in a shorter time than 3,5 years was quite easy – I had the motivation and enjoyed the studies much. Now, after graduation with the Bachelor’s degree, I’m currently in Switzerland to study for a Master’s Degree in International Business. I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to study and work in Finland. The best thing about the studies at KAMK was that each course included practical work in groups and as the study groups are multicultural, I’ve had a lot of discussions with people from different countries. This has taught me communication and leadership skills and I’ve learned how to deal with people with different motivation, which is valuable experience towards the working life.”
“I completed the International Business programme in two years. The key was good time management, setting my priorities and challenges for myself. During my studies, I used the opportunity to study abroad as an exchange student for one semester and also did my practical training abroad. These are both counted fully as part of the studies, so it didn’t affect my study time. The studies at KAMK are flexible and offer the possibility to build your own study path that enables you to graduate faster than in the regular 3,5 years.”
