Baltic Sea Business & Society module, 25 ECTS

Content

Baltic Sea Business & Society Study Module introduces business in the Baltic Sea region to the students and offers a wide perspective on the political situations and the societies of the countries in the Baltic Sea region. The study module utilises a multidisciplinary - economic and sociological - approach on the Baltic Sea region, which allows the students to form a deep and comprehensive understanding of the region. Strong economic growth and an emphasis placed on economic issues have been characteristic of many of the countries in the Baltic Sea region, which has had an impact on their societies, politics and cultures. On the other hand, the business cultures of the countries in the Baltic Sea region cannot be understood without understanding their societies and politics.

Baltic Sea region is one of the most important geographical areas of focus for Southwest Finland and the city of Turku. Baltic Sea Business & Society Study Module of the Turku School of Economics and the University of Turku is a part of a larger process which aims to support the profiling of Finland - specifically Southwest Finland - as an expert of the Baltic Sea and to produce more competitive experts and research on the field. Nationally and internationally, both of these are on an ever-increasing demand. The module is designed to supply the students with the skills needed to work both in business and in expert positions in the public sector (the EU, as well as the public administrations and local governments of the different countries in the Baltic Sea region) and in the third sector (e.g. civic organisations).

The study module consists of courses offered by both the TSE's International Business and UTU's Baltic Sea Region Studies Master's Programme. These courses vary annually according to each year's curricula. The student must carry out at least 25 credits worth of courses from the options offered so that he/she can receive a separate mark to his/her degree certificate for the Baltic Sea Business & Society Study Module. The study module must include at least 6 credits from the courses below offered by TSE's International Business and at least 5 credits from the courses below offered by UTU's Baltic Sea Region Studies Master's Programme. Otherwise, the student is free to select any courses below that he/she wants to include in the study module.

NB: The student must carry out at least 25 credits worth of courses per degree in order for the study module to be registered in his/her degree certificate.

The students of TSE register to the courses at the beginning of the course, unless mentioned otherwise in the course description.
