From BSc degree to MSc degree
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).
After the student has been accepted to the MSc programme, the student will get the right to study for the Master’s degree and a tutor from the faculty. When the student has received a BSc diploma (graduation) and the right to study in a MSc Programme (decision from the Learning Services), he/she must draw up a personal study plan and have discussion with the teacher tutor, and have the personal study plan of the MSc degree approved.
