What do you study in ITP?

In ITP, you can study information technologies, service design and digital platforms. Each of the tracks includes three courses and the business project course consisting of 24 credits. Select your favourite one from the three specialization tracks. 

Hands-on business project

The highlight of the ITP summer is a real business project commissioned by a partner organisation. The business project is done in teams of 4-5 students, with varying academic and international backgrounds. While the ITP faculty supports student teams throughout the summer with workshops and frequent feedback sessions, the teams work independently to come up with the best solution for their client’s challenge. 

The business project allows students to improve their project management, teamwork and presentation skills, not to mention the unique learning experience of applying your new skills to a real challenge. After ITP, students are ready to take on the challenges of the digital business environment.
