UCC Executive MBA also enjoyed sights in Helsinki.

The UCC Executive MBA recently returned from a very successful Study Visit to Helsinki in Finland.

Based on the theme of Leading Change, over the four day visit thirty students in the class worked with a number of leading Finnish companies on live change management challenges within their organisations.

The students worked with Finland’s national broadcaster, YLE; software development experts Vincit; ICT and online service market leader Elisa; Finland’s main telecommunications company, DNA; building automation company Produal; and the Swedish-language media house KSF Media.

While in Helsinki the students were introduced to a number of change management theories and frameworks to utilise in their interactions with their partnered companies. On the final day of the visit each project team within the class presented to the companies their responses to the challenges.

This is the sixth time the UCC Executive MBA programme has visited Helsinki and the study visit is invaluable in creating networking opportunities between the students and the Finnish business sector, with its track record of being a hothouse of entrepreneurship.

The visit took place from Monday 24th April to Thursday 27rd April 2017 inclusive.
