Future of Work (open online)

We are amid a revolution of work, which started already long before the pandemic. Making sense of the future of work can feel tricky in the middle of a constant information overflow. This course is supported with academic research and references packaged in a way that is easy to access. In this course, we will look at how the roles of the individual, organisations and society have changed and how it affects how we work today and in the future.

The best way to spend a summer

Aalto University Summer School offers high-quality multidisciplinary academic courses and programs for the summer teaching period. We focus on challenge-based learning and want our students to experience the Finnish summer and gain international networks while studying topics such as digital business, sustainability, entrepreneurship, leadership or biomaterial science. 

The courses and programs are organised at Aalto University's Otaniemi campus, located within a 10-minute metro ride from Helsinki. Aalto University Summer School and the Otaniemi campus have something for everyone.
