From BSc degree to MSc degree

[Suomeksi]

The students of Aalto School of Business, who have been admitted to study BSc degree, have the right to continue to the MSc degree programmes. However, they will be granted a study right to a MSc degree programme only after completing the BSc degree and graduating.

When applying for the bachelor’s diploma, the student informs the Learning Services of the Master’s programme the student would like to continue in. Please, notice that there are certain preconditions to some of the MSc Programmes (see the list below).

Starting Master’s level studies

Students who have not been granted a study right to a MSc degree programme but have completed 150 credits or more for the Bachelor´s degree, can start completing courses for their MSc minor studies (24 cr) and intermediate level elective courses (12 cr). Students can begin taking MSc level courses when they have earned 150 credits or more for the Bachelor’s degree, including all of the common core studies and the obligatory method studies.
