Teaching is carried out as blended learning.
Group meetings are held at least once a month for two consecutive working days, including a voluntary evening program and overnight stays. Group meetings consist of the following parts:
- Learning session, where the previously given assignment topic is handled by the team under the guidance of the teacher and feedback is given
- Training workshop with concrete exercises, e.g. budgeting with spreadsheet program
- Workshops where the students individually or in pairs prepare an introduction to a topic agreed with the teacher. These introductions can take the form of a presentation, video, business visit, visitor, etc., and continue with conversation, exercises, teamwork, business visit or other means of deepening the subject
- Language workshop where the students learn either Swedish or English communication under the guidance of a teacher
- Learning session, where students form a new learning task and set goals for themselves
- Workshop where the teacher prepares the content and the working methods which support it, according to the subject and the progress of the learning processes.
During the distance learning you will learn using the following methods:
- Independent acquisition of information about the learning task and the online discussion supporting it
- Doing exercises related to a learning task
- Reading literature that supports the subject of the module, writing an essay
- Implementing a project or development task related to the module (this can take place, for example, at a workplace in order to meet for its needs) and reporting
- Learning cell work
- Preparing for the workshops or other tasks related to the module theme.

May participate in any course if there is room in the group and they have the prior knowledge required.

Prior university studies may be accredited as part of the degree. These cases will be discussed with the teacher tutor at the beginning of and during the studies. Applications are made through the system found in TAMK Intra.
If you have competence that corresponds to the content of the curriculum, through other previous education or work experience, you can demonstrate them and thus incorporate your previously acquired competences into the degree. This so-called AHOT (recognition of prior learning) process is reviewed in discussions at the beginning of and during the studies. The methods for demonstrating competence are agreed with the teachers in charge of the individual courses, in accordance with TAMK's AHOT principles.

You will be encouraged to apply for student exchange. It is recommended that you do the exchange during your 2nd to 4th year of studies. The credits awarded through the exchange are added to the degree with their original course names and extent. They will replace the studies that you would have done in Finland during the exchange period, unless otherwise agreed.

An adult student usually conducts their practical training at their own workplace, if the work is in the field of the degree programme and it is on a BBA level.

The second national language, oral and written, must be demonstrated during studies. In the curriculum, this is included in Swedish language courses.
