Event Details

Scope and Objectives:

The Hanken & SSE Integration Program Business Lead® is a fast-track for unemployed educated immigrants and refugees into business life. The programme is offered in collaboration with the largest Social Impact Bond in Europe.

Finland received over 30,000 asylum seekers in 2015. Among them were educated professionals with substantial language skills. However, even with a higher education, language barriers, difficulties comparing matriculations and for some negative encounters in society, integration into working life can be very difficult. Would not a swift integration into Finnish working life benefit everyone involved, the individual, Finnish business and society at large?

With an objective to remove obstacles for educated asylum seekers to engage with Finnish local and international businesses, or to set up their own, Hanken & SSE Excecutive education decided to fast-track the integration process, also pushing themselves to get from idea to program launch in less than 6 months. Together with the partners, Hanken School of Economics and mobile learning service provider Funzi, they designed a “micro-MBA” integration program, including mentoring and internships in leading companies.

In this session, Hanken & SSE Executive Education and Epiqus (Social Impact Bond) will  share their success stories and also point out some of the interesting challenges they came across during these last years.

Hanken & SSE Executive Education and Epiqus were granted the Gold Award in the EFMD Excellence in Practice Award 2018 in the ‘Talent Development’ category.
