Course Structure

  • Part II during the summer and period I is a follow-up course, where the students share their experiences and expand their knowledge on how to run a growth company. The students will host and attend workshops and reflect on their learnings. In AF there is also a possibility for a study trip abroad during the fall, during which students will work further on topics related to high-growth entrepreneurship.

Aalto Fellows is targeted to all Aalto students from study year III onwards. AF aims to educate critical thinkers, who are smart and get things done. We want to make extraordinary and usual combinations of Aalto students and companies. The lectures and workshops in the end of May will prepare the students for their internship. During the internship the students will organize and attend workshops. They are also required to reflect on what they have learned during the summer, and submit a paper on their thoughts.
