Make lifelong friends

In Aalto University, you will meet many people from all over the world. You'll be able to make lifelong friends with classmates and colleagues from around the globe.

You can also make friends with people of different backgrounds, ages and majors. For example: if you're studying biology but your friend is studying economics or political science—you might find yourself chatting about what's going on in their lives! Or maybe one of you really likes cooking while another prefers sports? If so then there's no reason why those interests shouldn't overlap!

The same applies for personality types too - if one person loves playing video games while another prefers reading fiction books then they're likely going to enjoy each other's company more than some random person who just happens "to share" similar interests with yours."

Be part of a global community of over 150,000 alumni.

Aalto alumni are working all over the world and in every field, from technology to finance to politics. They are happy to help you find your way in life, whether it's finding an internship or starting your own company.
