Who should attend

The program is for unemployed academically educated refugees and immigrants, who have English language skills and relevant work experience, and that hold a valid residence permit in Finland, but are not Finnish citizens.

The aim of the program is to introduce and integrate educated refugees and immigrants into Finnish working life.

About the course

The Business Lead Programme is a unique integration programme for educated refugees and immigrants that benefits all stakeholders involved, immigrants, company partners and Finnish society at large. The programme consists of four live modules addressing the Finnish and European business landscape and organisational culture, strategic leadership, finance and a sales and service mindset.

The programme will end with a 3-month internship in a company in Finland.
