AVP has an ongoing partnership with UC Berkeley, which makes it possible to take part in the bootcamp at no cost for the students. Full-time Aalto students, who have taken (or are planning to take) AVP courses and already have an idea they'd like to develop at the bootcap are welcomed to apply.

The bootcamp offers a unique experience in one of the most well-known institutions in Silicon Valley, California. During the program, students will attend sessions that combine lectures and interactive game-based exercises, get one-on-one mentoring from faculty and industry experts, and learn in a collaborative environment.

The BMoE bootcamp uses the latest approaches for training global technology entrepreneurs. The method combines strategy, tactics, culture, and psychology with an entrepreneurial infrastructure. Additionally, the program is structured to provide an optimal global entrepreneurship experience.

  • Work on idea generation and how to turn ideas into new ventures
  • Use case studies to facilitate and hone ideas, attend special modules on ideation, sales, pitch, and funding
  • Collaborate with UC Berkeley experts and advance your idea to the next level

Milja Mieskolainen: The Schuman internship at the European Parliament exceeded my expectations

Milja Mieskolainen, a Master's student in Accounting at the Aalto University School of Business, had already considered applying for an internship in the European Union, but thought it would be too challenging to get an internship. In spring 2023, however, she noticed an advertisement for internships and decided to give it a try, as there was an interesting vacancy in the Economic governance and EMU Scrutiny Unit. Applying did not prove difficult either. Milja applied, got the job and started her internship at the European Parliament in October.
