Chinese get a dose of Finnish logistics
JAMK University of Applied Sciences is taking its logistics degree expertise to Hyaiyin Institute of Technology in China.
The logistics degree programme has been ongoing at JAMK for two decades, and in 2014 it received the EUR-ACE Bachelor quality label.
JAMK and Hyaiyin Institute of Technology signed the agreement this week. The value of the eight-year contract is, if executed fully, approximately one million euros.
According to JAMK, the need for further knowledge in the field of logistiscs in China is evident due to the country’s economic growth and rapidly increasing manufacturing sector.
The programme will, from 2018 onwards, offer six modules of logistics training annually. On top of this, some of the Chinese students will be able to study their degree partially at JAMK.
JAMK has previously collaborated with Chinese universities, and in 2015, JAMK and Tampere Adult Education Centre opened a Sino-Finnish Centre for Developing Learning Innovations in Guangzhou, together with Guangdong Polytechnic Normal University.
