Customized Student Business Projects

  • The Customized Student Project concept was created to meet business needs.
  • The concept has a proven track record, as projects have been run successfully at the School of Business since 1993.
  • Project topics can be related to any subject that is taught or researched in Aalto University, as long as a relevant researcher is available to supervise the project
  • Customized project group:
    • Aalto University School of Business is responsible for recruiting and selecting the research group (2–4 senior students) for each project. The students are offered both study credits and a fee for the project.
    • Student groups are customized according to the project needs. The students can come from one or several fields of Aalto University, such as business, engineering and arts & design.
    • Each project is supervised by a researcher from Aalto University. The supervisor is compensated for the work.
  • The average project time is 3 months (+/-1 month)
  • Project kick-offs are customized according to company needs

Project fee for the company: 14 500 – 18 500€  (+VAT).  The project fee is used for three things: students salaries, supervisor salary and the organizing costs.
