Combine business, design and technology in a unique challenge-based minor program. ITP studies offer students real-life project experience and a valuable skill set for the digital business environment.

Information Technology Program (ITP) is a summer minor program (24 ECTS) that brings together students from diverse backgrounds to solve digital business problems. ITP enables students to combine business, design, and technological perspectives and prepares them for a future of data-driven and evidence-based decision making in the digital economy.

During the three-month-long program, students gain valuable project work experience in international multi-disciplinary teams. Collaboration with a company client on a real-life project helps students expand their network and apply the skills they learn in a meaningful way.
