Coordinators, study guidance counsellors and teachers of Economics/Business Management from the Greater Helsinki area were recently invited to attend an information session to learn about changes to the intake procedure in Aalto Business School. No fewer than three professors and two members of the admission team were on hand to explain what´s new. We were delighted to learn that English language courses will start in Otaniemi in 2018, adding to those already available at the Mikkeli campus. Changes to the admissions procedure - whilst still a work in progress in terms of calculating points on par with the national matriculation examinations - are set to favour IB applicants over the old system of double testing. The bottom line was that IB students are valued applicants and well placed to succeed with a strong diploma to their credit.
