Exceptional minor studies and project collaboration

This year the whole world came to realise how important role digital solutions play in nowadays business. Digitalisation isn't a quick fix or one person's job. It's a long process that asks professionals from different fields to collaborate. 

For the same reason, all our future professionals must learn the basics of different digitalisation tools and areas. The greatest innovations arise from multi-diverse collaboration where brilliant minds from various fields unite their unique skillsets.

That's why ITP combines business, technology, and design students to solve real-life digital business challenges. ITP students will have all the keys to create innovative solutions for businesses to grow.

This is challenge-based learning. This is a rewarding collaboration. This is ITP.

The future is made this summer.

With inspiring regards,

Petra Fagerlund, ITP Program Manager
