What students say

Juliane Jokinen

Juliane Jokinen (Finland)
International Business Administration (BA)

TalTech provides a truly innovative, friendly and international environment. After finishing my bachelor's degree, I went to Germany for a year to start my master's degree. However, I realised very soon that I missed the motivating learning environment, so I made a decision to move back to Tallinn to start with my MBA degree and continue working as the Head of International Affairs of United Nations Association Estonia.

Law (MA)

Estonia is renowned for its advanced e-governance systems and start-ups. The law programme offered at TalTech has lived up to my expectations – we have had many exciting courses such as digital evidence, cyber security and a course how to build start-ups, all this through the prism of law, which gives the programme a stimulating touch of interdisciplinary.

New curriculum of E-Governance Technologies and Services has been established at TalTech
