Master's Degree

The two-year Master’s Degree is built of 120 ECTS-credits and it comprises advanced major studies, minor studies and elective studies, as well as the master’s thesis. Many choose to deepen their knowledge in the specialization area they studied during their bachelor, but it is not uncommon to switch to something entirely different since there are many options available. In addition to Aalto BIZ Master’s programmes, there are also interdisciplinary Aalto programmes to choose from such as IDBM (International Design Business Management) or Creative Sustainability. The official language of the master’s programmes is English, except in Corporate Law which is taught in Finnish. Learn more about different options here.

In addition to courses in the School of Business, you can also take courses from the schools in the fields of science, art and design, or even study abroad by going on exchange! You can include these studies as either your minor or elective studies. In addition to Aalto’s course variety, you can include studies from other universities as a part of your degree in line with students flexible study rights. Read more about exchange studies or flexible studies right here.

All Bachelor’s degree students at the Aalto School of Business have a direct study right to study for a Master’s degree at Aalto BIZ. However, if you have completed your Bachelor’s degree in another university or university of applied sciences, you can apply to study in Aalto BIZ Master’s programmes.
