Learning by doing

Proakatemia is an entrepreneurship and team leadership unit of Tampere University Of Applied Sciences. We improve actively our skills in team work and leadership. The studies are implemented in the most practical way. Students start their studies by establishing their own companies in teams. They come up with their own projects with real customers and money involved. The theoretical studies consist of books, seminars and learning with dialogue. That’s how we build a solid base for entrepreneurship and work-life. 

In Proakatemia students gain a strong professional competence along with advantageous metaskills. Domestic and international networks of Proakatemia also create an opportunity to build large and diverse networks. It eases future employment and gives strong support and fellowship also after graduation.

Experiences from previous years

As a coaches perspective the most valuable lesson I learned from Academic Adventures was that the challenges in high education all around the world are similar. Lack of meaning and decreased motivation. Still I feel that our model is one way to tackle these challenges and as numbers show a quite successful way.

I would recommend the week for others. It is a first glimpse to see new way of studying through team learning and entrepreneurship. On the other hand it’s a great place to meet like-minded people from all around the world.

In my opinion, the way that Academic Adventures has been organized is by far superior compared to other international weeks that I’ve experienced. The decision to throw the idea of organizing the event to the team of international relations in Proakatemia couple of years ago has been the best decision ever made. The original idea was only a sketch on half sheet of an A4 paper. The coaches didn’t give the teampreneurs a lot to work on - that said, the results were amazing!
