Content and structure of the minor

Students from all six schools of Aalto University are welcome to take Aalto Venture Program (AVP) minor or take AVP and other entrepreneurship courses as electives. AVP courses provide Aalto Master’s students with diverse steps into entrepreneurship. AVP courses cover important aspects of entrepreneurship; leadership, design thinking, finance, innovation, start-ups, prototyping, storytelling and much more.

The AVP 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. In AVP 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 AVP minor can be completed with two tracks, one focusing on start-up entrepreneurship and one on product and opportunity development. Each track is based on a large project course. The project courses are supported by 1-2 required core courses and a large selection of elective courses (AVP 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.

Students of Industrial Engineering and Management cannot include AVP in their degree as the required technology-related minor, but can include it as a second minor instead of elective studies.
