Course Structure 
Part I is an intensive course given before the summer in period V by leading start-up growth experts and investors. Part I includes self assessment, workshops and recreational activities with the other students. Part II in period I is a follow-up case course, where candidates share their experiences and expand their knowledge on how to establish and run a growth company. The students will do a case study based on their observations from the company they worked for during summer. In AF there is also a possibility for a study trip abroad during the fall. 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 interns will keep a journal on their observations and submit them to the faculty.

The credits from the course will be issued under course code 23C70201 and 23C70202. (TU-91.9910 code with varying course content if Business School credits don’t apply to your diploma). Please note that this course will not have Noppa or Oodi pages. These credits do not fit into Aalto Ventures Minor.
