Experiences in the studies of International Business and Sales Management

Studying International Business and Sales Management at the University of Eastern Finland was the first building block for Mikael Pennanen on his path towards the career of his dreams. As it happens, he landed a job even before finishing his studies, and within three years of graduating he had become Managing Director at Meltwater, one of the leading global companies in the field of social media monitoring and engagement. In his current position, he also takes part in recruiting new employees and is always on the lookout for freshly graduated, internationally minded team players with a good command of business English – very much like the IBS students at the UEF!

I’ve achieved more than I ever believed would be possible.
