LITO - Basic business studies for Technology students (25-40 ects)

Basic business studies (=LITO) – online study package is carried out as a joint effort of ten Finnish universities. The studies are not available for students of business administration, but for students of technology only. Please see Weboodi and www.lito.fi for course descriptions and detailed information. Each course features respected experts who describe business and economic phenomena. All courses are implemented completely online.

Please note that the registration differs from the normal LUT timetable!

Please see LITO Student Guide 2022-23 (pdf) for more information.

Taking the only obligatory course Understanding and managing a business as a dynamic whole –  business simulation game presumes knowledge of the focal concepts. Therefore, the prospective student is recommended to take the LITO courses Basics of Management and Organisations and one other course before, or otherwise possess equivalent knowledge.
