Toteutuksen valinnaiset suoritustavat

All students are entitled to demonstrate their competence. The recognition and accreditation of prior competence is initiated by the students themselves. The competence is recognised and accredited by the teacher responsible for the studies or another person designated to the position. The assessment is carried out according to the same assessment criteria and, as a rule, same grading scale as that adopted for the corresponding study unit or module. The student is entitled to apply for accreditation of prior competence regardless of where, how and when the competence has been acquired. The student may also seek accreditation of competence to be acquired on the job as part of their degree (work-based learning). The student is responsible for demonstrating and verifying their competence and for providing sufficient information.

Lisätietoja opiskelijoille

The subscription economy changes how we sell and buy services. Subscription economy is transforming businesses from one time purchases towards monthly payments and continuous value creation. Were not buying any more albums. Instead we pay a monthly subscription to services like Spotify or Apple Music. The same goes with movies (Netflix, Viaplay, AppleTV+, HBO, etc.).

You’re in the right place if you’re interested in understanding more about the subscription economy and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model.
