Applicants, who have a study right to complete only Master’s degree at the Aalto University School of Business, cannot apply in this admission. Also applicants, who have a study right to complete both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Aalto University School of Business, cannot apply for the same Bachelor’s degree programme that the applicant already has a study right to.

Study options and intake

How to apply?

Admissions to Bachelor studies in English are organized through the spring national joint application to higher education. It is currently not possible to apply for studies at Aalto University in the autumn's application period for joint application.

Applications are submitted in the national Studyinfo-service. You can also find all study options available at Aalto University at Studyinfo (studyinfo.fi)

Late applications will not be considered.

More information on the higher education institutions’ student admissions and the application form (only during the application period) is available on www.studyinfo.fi (opintopolku.fi in Finnish).

The admission to the BScBA Programme is based on

-          European Baccalaureate Diploma (EB) or

o   transfer applications.

Applying in more than one of these admission groups is not restricted. Applicants may apply in all admission groups in which they are eligible. An applicant who meets the minimum requirements for both admission groups I and II can be considered in both groups. The applicant is not required to choose which admission group he/she applies in, since all applicants are automatically considered in both admission groups.

Note! All applicants must read the instructions on how to fill the application form carefully. In case there are any questions or confusion about which group the applicant should apply in, the applicant should contact the Aalto University School of Business Mikkeli Campus: [email protected].

Information on the SAT Test

 

The SAT Test assists the admission offices in student selection and helps to compare the academic achievements of students from different schools. The SAT Test is organized by College Board; an American organization founded by universities and colleges. The SAT Test tests mathematical, writing and critical reading skills.

All official results of the SAT tests must be delivered to Aalto University directly from the test organizer. Aalto University ID code (1700) must be included in the SAT registration form. Students who have taken the tests earlier must order the score report to be sent to Aalto University directly form the test organizer.

All applicants applying in spring 2019 must complete the SAT tests by the individual deadlines of each admission group (II&III).

Only SAT tests completed 1 Jan 2017 or later will be considered in the admissions. If you have completed more than one SAT tests, only the test with the highest total score (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Mathematics –sections) will be considered. In the same SAT Test, an applicant must have received a score of at least 1200 from the two test modules.

Please note, that SAT tests can be fully booked before the final registration date, so please make sure to register for the test well in advance. Aalto University does not organize SAT tests or answer inquiries concerning the tests. Filling the online application form at Studyinfo.fi does not automatically register the applicant to the SAT test.

More information on taking the SAT test in Finland can be found at https://samsuomi.fi/sat-ja-sat-subject/ (currently only in Finnish).

More information on the SAT test can be found at http://www.collegeboard.org/.
