The Information Technology Program (ITP) is an academic summer program, targeted to both university students and professionals. Close cooperation with companies ensures that the ITP program serves both of its target groups with up-to-date information on Internet economy. ITP enables individuals to combine both business and technological perspectives.
Since 1995 Aalto University has arranged a summer program in Information Technologies for selected university students and corporate partners.
The purpose of the ITP is to provide students with a strong applied understanding of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The program provides the necessary tools, concepts and approaches that enable students with diverse backgrounds to operate effectively in the global business environment.
The program consists of two simultaneous subprograms with different areas of concentration. Students can participate in only one of the subprograms during the same summer. The only subprogram of the ITP that is recognized for credit by the College of Business's ITM faculty is Business & Technologies. The subprogram is worth 24 ECTS credits (12 University of Michigan - Dearborn credits) and is recognized as a minor subject in the M.Sc. program at HSE.
Students pay 12 credit hours of tuition to UM-Dearborn as if they were in residence (all normal financial aid can apply), but are responsible for their own living expenses (excursions, housing and meals, etc.) Costs are similar to those in an American city, but cheaper than most European capitals. MANY discounts are available to students, much more so than in the US, on items like food and travel. R/T airfare from Detroit is usually ~ $1000..
