The Business Lead Program is a unique integration program for educated asylum seekers with mutual benefits for both the asylum seekers themselves and for Finnish business in general.
The program consists of four live modules addressing the Finnish and European business landscape and organizational culture, strategic leadership, finance and a sales- and service mindset.
The participants in the program also have access to a mobile learning service developed by Funzi and will have the opportunity to take part in Entry Point Mentoring arranged by the Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce. The program will end with an internship in a Finnish company.
The aim of the program is to introduce and integrate educated asylum seekers into Finnish working life.
The program is delivered in partnership with Hanken & SSE Executive Education, Hanken School of Economics and the mobile service company Funzi.
The program starts in May 2016 ending Fall 2016.
