Aalto International Talent Programme 2019–2020

Are you a master's student in the CCIS Programme? Are you looking to build a career in Finland after graduation? If yes, this is your chance to get started.

Together with eight partner companies, we are bringing you Aalto International Talent Programme to help you get connected - and get that foot in the door!

    How does it work?

    Go through the list of our mentor companies and choose one company that interests you in terms of their business -  and as a possible future employer.

    Together with your peers,  in a group of 5-8 students, you will meet your mentor company's recruiters, professionals and Aalto alumni for five group mentoring sessions during December 2019 - April 2020. 

    To earn 1 credit for the programme, you additionally complete a simple networking excercise and return a learning diary.

     Aalto International Talent Programme (1 cr) entails

    • Five group mentoring sessions (with preliminary assignments)
    • Networking excercise (attending a career fair)
    • Learning diary (reflecting on your learning outcomes)

    Detailed information on all programme elements will be available on Aalto MyCourses https://mycourses.aalto.fi/course/view.php?id=26652.
