Content and structure of the minor

Students from all six schools of Aalto University are welcome to take Startup minor or take entrepreneurship courses as electives. Entrepreneurship courses in Aalto provide master’s students with diverse steps into entrepreneurship. The courses cover important aspects of entrepreneurship; leadership, design thinking, finance, innovation, start-ups, prototyping, storytelling and much more.

The Startup minor seeks to inspire and provide students with insight and experience needed to build bold new ventures either as new independent startup companies or within existing companies. During the courses you’ll learn by doing together with people from various backgrounds and nationalities. This will teach you practical ‘street smarts’ for starting new ventures, which is one of the best ways to making an impact in real life.

The startup entrepreneurship minor is based on a large project course. The project courses are supported by 2 or more required core courses and a large selection of elective courses (Entrepreneurship electives).

Although most courses in the minor are cross-school courses and as such broadly accessible for students from different schools within Aalto University, please note that individual courses may have group size limits and separate application procedures.
