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, we learn how companies transform their processes and systems by implementing digital technologies.

During the intense 2 weeks, we build a project, planning a digital solution for a real-life company problem. Concepts covered include mobile and social technologies, service design, data analytics, platforms and ecosystems, business models, working in virtual teams and project management frameworks.

In addition to on-site learning, the course includes pre- and post-work periods. We learn in virtual, classroom, teamwork and corporate environments.

Summer at Digital Business Master Class

Participating in the Digital Business Master Class in the summer gives students an excellent opportunity to enjoy Finland at its best. Visitors can enjoy the surrounding nature in full bloom, take advantage of the countless hours of daylight and experience the vibrant Helsinki city life. Digital Business Master Class organises cultural excursions as a part of the program, and participants are encouraged to take full advantage of the Aalto Summer School social program as well. 

ITP alumnus from 2019, Tyler Spring, shares his tips for making the most of your time at the Master Class:  "Make sure you take the time to explore all of the great things that Helsinki has to offer – especially the restaurants and nightlife. The program provides ample time on the weekend to explore outside of Helsinki, and I’d highly recommend taking the short ferry to Tallinn."
