LBM’s much-applauded sense of community stems from doing things together

Students starting their Master's studies in business are welcomed with open arms. It's always worthwhile to attend events and meet new people, says marketing student Titta.


The air is thick with excitement. The teams are on the edge of their seats, giving their assignments their all. Who will build the highest tower out of uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows? The techniques vary, but one construction towers over the others. It reaches towards the skies, whereas the others attain much lower heights. The winner is evident!

The competition is part of the entertainment at the welcome party for Master's students in the International Marketing Management (MIMM) programme of the LUT School of Business and Management (LBM). The gathering takes place at LUT University's lakeside sauna and targets especially new Master's students, but any MIMM students are welcome.

"The idea is for students to get to know each other. We do lots of group assignments in our studies, and that's why we have team activities here as well," explains Professor Olli Kuivalainen, MIMM Programme Director.
