"University of Vaasa offered me an invaluable education in international business." Amar Taha completed a Double Degree in the Master's Degree Programme in International Business and is now working at Fazer within e-commerce and digital marketing.

Uni Vaasa as a student community is a magnificent place to grow, learn and have fun. The community is what I miss the most and of which I have the best memories: all my friends lived pretty much next door, the uni., gym, library, bars and everything else was within a mile. All the events, student competitions and case studies – it is good life living and studying in Vaasa.

My journey from freshman year to full time work life included part-time work while studying, summer jobs, few semesters abroad (one in Paris, two in Marseille) and an exciting 6-month internship in New York within economic development. At the moment I am based in my home town Helsinki, and I work for Fazer Confectionery within e-commerce and digital marketing, supporting sales across EU (and beyond!).

To conclude, University of Vaasa offered me an invaluable education in international business and a base for my career. I am lucky and honored to graduate such diverse and talented class that we had – working in cross-cultural teams, studying & working abroad – all this was made possible by University of Vaasa.

If you have a global mindset, or wish to develop one, this is your program!
