Teoriat todeksi

Liiketalouden opinnoissa tehdään paljon erilaisia projekteja ja case-harjoituksia. Projektit tehdään usein pienemmissä ryhmissä, jossa jokainen ryhmän jäsen saa toimia omien vahvuuksiensa mukaan vaikkapa markkinointi- tai projektipäällikkönä. Ryhmätöissä pääsee hyödyntämään tunneilla opetettuja asioita ja teoriatkin tulevat tutummiksi.

Opiskelijoiden mielestä parhaimpia ryhmätöitä ovat työelämälle tehtävät aidot projektit, joissa pääsee ratkomaan yritysten oikeita kehittämishaasteita ja samalla tutustumaan mielenkiintoisiin yrityksiin.

Yritysprojektit kannattaa tehdä tosissaan: tuloksena saattaa olla harjoittelu- ja opinnäytetyöpaikka!

VAMKin liiketalouden opiskelijat ovat olleet monessa mukana: tekemässä liiketoimintasuunnitelmia, laatimassa markkinointitutkimuksia, suunnittelemassa asiakastapahtumia sekä tehneet sissimarkkinointitempauksia.
