JKY – The Undergraduates of the Faculty of Management

JKY is the umbrella organization for the three main study fields in the Faculty of Management at the University of Tampere: business studies, political science and administrative sciences.

In Finnish universities every study field has its own student association. Student associations look after and try to influence academic and working life matters for students but also organize all kinds of events. JKY wants to promote cooperation between these student associations and create a sense of community inside the faculty. We want to help students to network across the borders of degree programs.

Together with the student associations JKY also organizes tutoring for international students.

More information about JKY you can get from our international organizer Joel Passoja (e-mail kansainvalisyys(at)
