Boosted with confidence, Adriana found a job and her place in Vaasa

Our industrial management alumna Adriana de la Garza Musi has settled in Vaasa and found a job that she enjoys. How did her degree help her land that job and why she has no plans to leave Vaasa? Read on!

After doing a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering in her home country Mexico, Adriana was looking for a place to study in Europe together with her partner. They wanted to study in English and get better language skills at the same time, so she was looking for universities with scholarships and master’s programmes taught in English.

A programme with the right combination of engineering and business

Our master’s programme in industrial management got Adriana excited as it brought together her engineering background with the business and management areas that she wished to focus on.

Adriana got a scholarship and completed her master’s degree with us in two years. First year, the tuition fee was covered by the scholarship, and for the second year, she paid half the price.

Adriana’s advice to new international students

  1. In Vaasa, you can get by with English in your daily life, like talking to the cashiers when getting groceries.
  2. Enjoy Finnish nature and the four seasons.
  3. You survive the dark winter days better when you don’t fight the drop in energy and just sleep more.
  4. Find hobbies and get to know people – and you will find your place in society.
