The Master’s Programme in Information Networks from Aalto University educates cross-disciplinary thinkers and innovators with technical yet human-centric skills. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between human beings and digital technologies on an individual, group, organisational and societal level.


The great challenges of our time, from climate crisis to information manipulation, all have something in common: they are complex societal phenomena and solving them is unclear. These so-called wicked problems call for holistic approaches that recognise larger connections between things.

Tailored to the needs of the modern digital economy and information society, the programme provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between human beings and digital technologies on an individual, group, organisational and societal level.
