You can specialize in management, where you help companies create and execute strategies to reach their goals with the help of individuals and teams. If you study finance, you could help companies find ways to finance their investments, or invest their funds in productive assets. Studying human resource management will give you the understanding and tools to recruit the right people into the company, and improve the team work mechanisms and organizational structure in the company. Studying marketing will enable you to identify the needs of clients, resulting in product development and appropriate communication to the target market.

After graduation, you may end up working in Finland or abroad, in the service, trade, industrial, or entertainment sector, in a small or large company, or perhaps in your own start-up.
