Master’s thesis for a company helps foreign professionals secure jobs
A critical factor for finding employment and settling in Finland as an international student is writing your master’s thesis for a company. A student from outside the EU who writes their thesis for a company is four times more likely to get a job that matches their education than a student who writes their thesis outside the private sector. This result was revealed by the Graduate Survey conducted by the Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK.
