The data from the interviews forms the empirical data of this study. This means that Finland as a whole has the potential to perform education export activities but each organisation alone will struggle, if not fail, to successfully sell its services abroad.
The study took a holistic approach to productising Finnish education for export with the aim of inspiring future thesis topics. This thesis has numerous findings.
Firstly, different stakeholders have different definitions and visions of education export. The country is sitting on an excellent educational system encompassing many challenges and opportunities, which this thesis is aiming to unravel. Twenty participants involved in the education export activities in Finland were interviewed.
The recent Finnish policies have encouraged higher education institutions to export education abroad and, indeed, Finland has entered into a new period of change. The study was assigned by Future Learning Finland, part of FinPro, to create a sustainable and profitable education export strategy for Finland.
As a result, the author recommends four strategies that form "The Building Blocks of Finnish Education Export", proposing a new perspective regarding productisation as a process.
Thirdly, business networks and personal contacts play an important role when exporting educational services, in particular, the need to forge meaningful partnerships and approach the right markets.
The main objective of this study is to investigate the barriers to and enablers for internationalisation in universities, polytechnics and vocational education and training schools in Finland.
The research is qualitative and interpretative. The interviewed members were managers, directors, senior advisors, experts, senior lecturers and coordinators, mostly in the field of education or international business.
Among them, there were three universities, seven polytechnics, three vocational institutes, three companies, the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland and the National Union of University and Polytechnic students.
Phenomenological research approach and methods were used to gather and interpret the empirical data.
Secondly, the Finnish education is an excellent product but the process of selling it is complex, requiring extensive human and financial resources.Walid El Cheikh. Program Manager Aalto University Executive Education.
