Aalto EE to Create the Largest Hub of Leadership and Professional Development in the Nordics

Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE), ranked in the global top 50 in executive education, moves to the Aalto University Töölö building creating a center for executive and professional development that will be unique in the Nordic countries. Formerly home to Aalto University School of Business, the iconic main building is currently undergoing renovation and modernization. The building will be ready to move in by the end of 2020. Aalto EE will be the main tenant of the building owned by Aalto University.

Aalto EE is a provider of impactful, goal-oriented and measurable learning experiences and unique customer experiences with verifiable business benefits. New facilities that bring together all the company’s activities under one roof will enhance this.  Every year, nearly 7,000 people from around 1,000 organizations benefit from learning with the Aalto EE and Aalto PRO portfolios of development programs. Aalto EE has more than 15,000 alumni around the world.  Aalto EE’s facilities are also in frequent use by our alumni, international partners and their customers. For example, hundreds of Aalto Executive MBA students from South Korea visit Helsinki every year. 

“I am both delighted and proud that we will soon all be working under one roof. Big is not always beautiful, but I am certain that our scale advantage in the Nordics will give the opportunity to both perfect all essential business management doctrines and stand out in specialized areas that take advantage of Aalto University’s strengths,” says Dr. Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director for Aalto EE and Professor of Practice at Aalto University School of Business. 

Modern art and facilities at the heart of the learning experience 

In the future, customers and staff of Aalto EE will also be inspired by art; art facilitates new and innovative ways of thinking and knowledge sharing. The company’s premises feature one of the most significant collections of contemporary and modern art in Finland. The placements of nearly 300 works around the facilities will be decided with care. 

Increasing digital learning does not erase the effectiveness of face-to-face learning 

For many of us, time spent interacting face-to-face remains an effective means for strengthening networks, discovering the best conversation partners for developing our leadership skills, and structuring our business with carefully selected tools. Aalto EE also offers a continuously expanding selection of online courses that focus on a variety of themes. The importance of webinars and podcasts is continuously increasing, and they are frequently used as pre-study material, for instance. Most programs offered by Aalto EE include both face-to-face interaction and digital learning.
