Training and workforce in the economic area

Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK)

Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAML) offers education and training in six fields of study and has strong links to business and industry. We can therefore offer our Finnish and foreign students authentic learning environments and assignments for the benefit of both the students and enterprises.

We carry out customer-oriented applied research and development projects in collaboration with companies and organisations. We aim to develop and provide the business community and the public sector with broad-based and valuable knowledge and knowhow.

HAMK is an important element in the regional development strategy as a provider of knowhow, a producer of innovation and a promoter of business enterprise.

The quality systems of Finnish higher education institutions are audited systematically by the Finnish Education Evaluation Centre. HAMK was the first ever higher education institution in Finland to receive the highest status “advanced” for its quality system.
