Take a look at the Study Guide available on Into and get to know the structure of the Master’s degree.

2.       Personal Study Plan (PSP/HOPS)

Plan your studies by creating your Personal Study Plan (PSP) on WebOodi. All the Master’s students at the Aalto University School of Business have to draft an electronic Personal Study Plan in the beginning of their studies. The study plan is drafted for completing the Master’s degree, i.e you choose the courses you plan to complete in your major, minor and elective studies, and plan the timing of the studies. When your plan is ready, you should send it to your study coordinator for approval. Study coordinator will either approve the plan or send it back to you with comments. Study guide and WebOodi are useful tools to support your study planning. Notice that you can always make changes in your PSP, i.e you can for example change the minor module or single courses in your degree. In case you change something in your PSP, remember to send it again to your study coordinator for approval. The first version you create does not have to be the final version for your Master’s degree, but you must get approval for all changes.

For more information on PSP and for tips on how to create one, please visit Into. You can also contact the study coordinator of your Master’s programme (contact details below) in case of questions regarding PSP and timing of courses.

3.       Registration for courses and exams

You need to register for courses and exams via WebOodi. The registration time for the courses is usually 28-7 days before the period begins. Registration for courses with an unlimited number of participants may also end later. Always check the registration schedule for each course on WebOodi.
