Junttan together with Me & MyGlobe makes International Business Real for 9th Graders in Kuopio, Finland.
The Me & MyGlobe learning concept brings international business close to 9th graders. Junttan is one of the two international case companies chosen for the Kuopio Me & MyGlobe site. The case companies are involved in the lectures, the game and the learning environment. The students have a unique opportunity to experience what it is like to be a corporate executive, to take responsiblity of different business areas and to be in charge of varying tasks.
Gamification is the heart of Me & MyGlobe when different teams compete against each other. Achieving the best operating profits is not enough to win the game. Working on the team reputation plays a significant role. A team with the best strategy, excellent team work and transparent communication is the winner.
Junttan is excited about this opportunity to make business life and foreign countries real for the 9th grades in Kuopio. It is a great opportunity also to us to promote to students what kind of opportunities we can offer for them in working life in the future, comments the Vice President of Junttan, Miika Eskelinen. He continues that nowadays it is more and more important for companies – especially in manufacturing industry- to ensure future labor force availability by telling about their job opportunities early enough for young students, who are about to decide what their future studies will be.
The Me & MyGlobe games start on Tuesday the 22nd of November 2016 in Kuopio, Finland.
