Mikkeli University Consortium

The Mikkeli University Consortium (MUC) is a networked academic community based on an agreement between Aalto University, the University of Helsinki, LUT University and the City of Mikkeli, which employs roughly 130 individuals.

MUC’s strength lies in competence areas founded on the expertise provided by the three parent universities, which stand out on the national scale and, at the same time, meet regional needs. Thanks to cooperation between the universities and through scientific research and education as well as solutions and operational models that promote the development of the region, the Mikkeli University Consortium tackles three large-scale challenges: Sustainability change, the change of entrepreneurship and the digital change.
