The Aalto University Information Technology Program is a minor study module in digital business and technology, with the objective to prepare students for a future of data-driven and evidence-based decision-making in the digital economy. Regina is enthusiastic about the opportunity to continue the legacy of the ITP and develop the program further. 'I am really excited to work with such a forward-thinking and dynamic team, and I am especially looking forward to working with students again,' says Regina.

The ITP partner with large companies and governmental or municipal organisations that aim to develop their business, processes, operations and solutions in the digital field.

'During the course, our students obtain hands-on experience by applying everything they learn during the conceptual courses into practice, and our partner companies get to develop focus areas of their choice. It truly is a win-win situation for everyone involved,' says Regina.

'ITP has a 26-year long history of multidisciplinary and challenge-based education. Having an experienced teacher and Program Manager such as Regina join our team is really exciting for us. Regina is a keen educational developer and I believe that she will take our vision of multidisciplinary business education even further,' says Laura Sivula, Head of Summer School.
