We had an interesting chat with Khalil Mozaffari, a first-year LFC student. Khalil studies in the track of Sustainable Business Management and he is also a student in the double-degree programme Cross-Border International Relations, which is offered by the Faculty of Management (University of Tampere) in cooperation with Petrozavodsk and St. Petersburg State Universities in Russia. Besides discussing practical matters, Khalil encouraged to look deeper in ourselves when considering whether to apply to the Master’s Degree Programme in Leadership for Change: “This programme develops you and it makes you ask questions what kind of person you are and what kind of person you want to be, whether you are ready for the change. If the students are ready for the change in themselves, then the Master’s Degree Programme in Leadership for Change is the right choice for them”.
This November, we have been organizing workshops that prepare first-year LFC students to organize LFC Lectures in the spring semester. Saara Kontiainen, Communications Coordinator in the Faculty of Management, visited our final workshop and attended also the pre-Christmas party that was organized for all LFC students and staff. Saara wrote some observations from the class and took photos from there – and our party!
