The final decision on all admissions will be published at the latest 28 June 2018.

The results of joint application to higher education in the field of business and diploma-based admissions to Aalto University's Bachelor’s Programme in International Business have been published today on 30 May.

In the joint application to higher education in business, 60% of new students are selected on the basis of their grades in the Finnish Matriculation Examination Certificate. In this group of applicants, the lowest points for direct admission to Aalto University’s Bachelor’s Programme in Business is currently 34. For the Bachelor’s Programme in International Business offered on Mikkeli campus in English, the lowest points for direct admission based on grades (Admission group I) is currently 32. The minimum points for admission based on diploma grades will be finalised at the end of the admission’s process, when possible admissions from the reserve list have been made. The programmes in Finnish and English have different scoring systems, which makes them incomparable.

It is important to understand that applicants scoring the same amount of points will be ranked according to the regulations listed in the selection criteria. As a result, not all applicants with the minimum points granting admission are admitted, as the final decision is based on the regulations for applicants with the same score.
