1     INTRODUCTION
1.1  Background  
Degree program in International business is one of many faculties included in the study programs of Satakunta university of applied science situated in Rauma campus. De-gree program in international business is all about problem based learning which helps to inspire as well as challenge students to learn. In addition, the specialty of interna-tional business is learning in an international environment. Students from various parts of the world with distinct cultures, traditions, values, lifestyle gather together at Rauma campus and share learning activities with each another.

My connection with case company is that I am one of the International Business stu-dent at Rauma campus. On autumn 2016, I participated for the project called YouTube marketing where we were supposed to prepare YouTube video which would help SAMK to attract new international as well as national students to study international business program in Rauma. While working in that project the idea of this thesis was generated.

The purpose of this thesis is to acknowledge the marketing and promotional activities of international business SAMK. Meanwhile, it will also try to find out the focus area while doing the promotion. This study will try to find out effective channel of promo-tion which has been used in the past and try to expand it to the new areas in future. The goal of this thesis is to provide detail view on marketing strategy and provide SAMK with some suggestions and innovative ideas which will be gathered during this study.
