Innovations and advantages
Teamwork experience and skills, self-initiative and an entrepreneurial mindset are the demands of today’s working life. These skills can be acquired in 3,5 years of university studies when using team learning methods. The methods are in use at some universities in Finland and abroad, originating from Tiimiakatemia of the Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences since 1993. At Proacademy, the entrepreneurial unit of Tampere University of Applied Sciences, the methods have been in use since 1999. The advantage of this learning model is significant. A graduate has an entrepreneurial mindset, passion for lifelong learning and a useful network. The graduates often find their employers and business partners from within the network. Approximately 96 % of the students graduate on time, 33 % continue as entrepreneurs directly after graduation. 47 % continue as entrepreneurs at some point and nearly all of the graduates are in working life or employ themselves within six months after graduation. A team company can finance a trip around the world, work in >100 customer projects and create >300 000 € revenue.
