Hanse Ski

Yesterday i finally went downhill skiing for the first time in Finland. After having crossed a couple of kilometers on cross country skies i have been happily throwing myself down the small hills of messila. Next to the bis ski jumps of lahti we had a great day with loads of wind and two busses full of aracada students. The lack of slope was compensated by the liters of minttu with chocolate and you could nearly forgot the cold. Thanks to Hanse and everybody else around.

Arcada Interview

Just received my interview that i gave for the new arcada brochure a couple of weeks ago – i think i did not say it that smart but nice of arcada for putting it that way – if you want to check out the brochure and one of the best universities of applied life in finland feel free to download the whole brochure or visit their website. I am still very happy with my exchange in the swedish finnish community and would gladly recommend a stay to anybody interested in going to north europe.

Hyvää Suomi – Part 5

It has been a long time since the last Hyvää Suomi Podcast. This was not because because life has slowed down here in the north and i had not anything to film but rather the opposite has happened. Life has been very pleasant to me and thus busy. Great things have happened and i opted to experience as much as i can, rather than sitting in front of a computer and editing past memories. Now that my swedish exam today has actually been passed quite well and i really did not want to start anything else tonight i decided to finally take on Hyvää Suomi – Part 5. This Part staring Youssef and Bene who were brave enough to visit me in the strange north of Europe. I warned them

The five faces of Manuel

During our entrepreneurship course at arcada we are asked to prepare a podcast episode about the topic: “Turn what customers talk into sales!”. Some of you faithfull readers of my blog know that i really can’t just fullfill one task as it is given to me – rather i will not be satisfied until i can play around a little more. Theirefor i talked manuel into a little photo project for the five main points of his part of the presentation. I set myself the task in a way that the main message is visible as clearly as possible and cared less about artistic details but a quick understanding of Manuels points

Why can’t we have proper Foreign Ministers??

Last week i had the great opportunity of listening to the Foreign Minister of Finnland, Alexander Stubb. While german polticians still discuss the importance of education as a whole finland has been striving for one of the best lower education system in the world. A national politician coming to a small school of 2700 Students in order to kick of the acadamic year is much more than respect to
