Information Technology Program (ITP) is a summer minor program (24 ECTS) that brings together students from diverse backgrounds to solve digital business problems. ITP enables students to combine business, design, and technological perspectives and prepares them for a future of data-driven and evidence-based decision making in the digital economy.

During the three-month-long program, students gain valuable project work experience in international multi-disciplinary teams. Collaboration with a company client on a real-life project helps students expand their network and apply the skills they learn in a meaningful way.

Hands-on business project

The highlight of the ITP summer is a real business project commissioned by a partner organisation. The business project is done in teams of 4-5 students, with varying academic and international backgrounds. While the ITP faculty supports student teams throughout the summer with workshops and frequent feedback sessions, the teams work independently to come up with the best solution for their client’s challenge. 

The business project allows students to improve their project management, teamwork and presentation skills, not to mention the unique learning experience of applying your new skills to a real challenge. After ITP, students are ready to take on the challenges of the digital business environment.
