Included in the Master Class

Digital Business Master Class is an interactive and fast-paced graduate-level course (6 ECTS) focusing on digital technologies as tools for building businesses. During the Master Class, students learn how companies transform their processes and systems by implementing digital technologies.

During the intense 2 weeks, student teams build a project, planning a digital solution for a real-life company problem. Concepts covered include data-intensive business, service design, platforms and ecosystems, business models, digital marketing, working in international teams and project management frameworks.

In addition to intensive weeks, the course includes independent pre- and post-work periods. Learning experiences range from insightful discussions in class to multidisciplinary teamwork and corporate collaboration.

Experience early spring in Finland

Helsinki and Espoo offer a lot to see also outside of the summer season. Local cafés and restaurants welcome visitors with a warm cup of coffee and Finnish delicacies. Popular sights like the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress have a unique atmosphere in the colder months, not to forget about interesting museums, picturesque libraries and Finnish design. And what better time to truly appreciate your sauna experience than after a cold day?

Snow in March is not a rare occurrence in Helsinki. However, if students want to maximise their chances of visiting a winter wonderland, they can travel further up north before or after the lecture weeks and visit Lapland. Another popular option for a mid-course weekend getaway is the city of Tallinn, located just a short boat ride away from Helsinki.
