Study Projects

In study projects, students work on real-life cases in collaboration with companies and other organisations. For companies, the projects offer a way to connect with the experts of the future and get fresh ideas and new insights.
Student Business Project 2

With know-how gained during studies, supported by teacher supervision and guidance, student groups take on challenges varying from market research and strategic planning to product design and development. Aalto University students have a way of challenging conventional ideas and coming up with new, innovative ways of doing things.

Study projects also provide a chance to get in touch with potential future employees, as well as gain visibility among the soon-to-be graduates from the fields of science, art, technology and business.
