Studying at Proakatemia

Proakatemia specializes in entrepreneurship. Students come from various degree programmes. Most students come from the Business Administration as well as Entrepreneurship and Team Leadership programmes, but there are also students from the Business Information Systems, Service Business, Physiotherapy, and Social Services degree programmes. Proakatemia also organizes master's degree studies and coaching in entrepreneurship.

Proakatemia uses team-learning methods. Teams of students create so-called team enterprises. Over 30 learning enterprises have been established by teams of Proakatemia students since 1999, with 3–4 new ones starting every year. Our team entrepreneurs have strong international networks.

The Proakatemia facilities in Finlayson are being shared with TAMK alumni who are working as entrepreneurs, side-by-side with the new generation of up-and-coming entrepreneurs.
