Developing relevance for working life at universities of applied sciences

Concrete operational plans to deepen cooperation with working life are needed to achieve the general goals described in the strategies adopted by the universities of applied sciences. The universities of applied sciences should take an active approach and clearly state what kinds of services and forms of cooperation they have for working life and business and who is responsible for cooperation. The purpose of the audit was to determine how relevance for working life is achieved at universities of applied sciences. The audit focused on two key education programmes, building technology and nursing. This document contains a summary of the main results of the audit. The entire audit report is available only in Finnish.
