High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! UPM-Kymmene Oyj (usually referred to simply as UPM) is a Finnish pulp, paper and timber manufacturer. UPM-Kymmene was formed by the merger of Kymmene Corporation and Repola Ltd and its subsidiary United Paper Mills Ltd in 1996. The company's oldest mill is Papeteries de Docelles located in northeastern France, which was producing traditional handpaper at the end of 15th century. In September 2008 UPM announced another cost reduction program that includes layoffs thousands of employees, and its Kajaani paper mill and Tervasaari pulp mill will be closed altogether. These will be the largest layoffs ever in Finland.
Integration has been a popular discourse among foreign students. The difficulty experienced among international degree students studying in Finland to find internship places and full time employment has been a point in focus. Foreign students are often confined to look outside Finland for employment opportunities having received high-class education. The question on how ready Finnish companies are to attract and retain foreign students still remains unanswered. The dimension of diversity which is closely related with the topic was introduced as well as the social aspects of integration, benefits and barriers to integration of foreign students were also studied. Survey, questionnaires and interviews were used in the research. The results manating from the research showed that Keski-pohjanmaan Kirjapaino Oyj is a proponent of integration of foreign students but more still needs to be done in terms of internship and full-time employment of foreign students. This is only one company out of the numerous indigenous Finnish companies and therefore, more studies need to be carried out on other Finnish companies.In
