We are happy to announce that Metsä Group has joined the group of HITP mentors! Metsä Group is especially reaching out to students from the Data and Computer Science Programmes as well as the Intercultural Encounters Programme, as they wish to focus on two main themes: ICT-work and DEI (Diversity, Equality and Inclusion).
Because Metsä Group joined the programme during the application process, it may affect the choice of mentor that applicants have already made. Don’t worry, you can change your mind! If you want to change mentor, this is what to do:
Look for the confirmation email you received after registering to HITP. There you will find a link “edit your information”. Go into your application and edit all relevant fields.
