Why LAB?

The world is not ready and neither are we – yet.

We at LAB University of Applied Sciences serve global business through worldclass, practice-oriented higher education and through research, development, and innovation (RDI).

Our strengths at LAB include the circular economy, design, the commercialisation of innovations, and health care service innovations. We are building our future on three campuses: in Lahti, in Lappeenranta and in the digital world.

We are a university of applied sciences focusing on innovation, industry and commerce. Everything we do at LAB generates added value for businesses. We love to solve problems. The trickier the problem, the more we push ourselves. We’re known for getting things done – and we are proud of it.

If you have a vision, we will do whatever we can to help you achieve it. If you are ready to go to extremes, so are we.

Let’s conquer the world together!
