Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) has appointed Tarja Kallonen as Senior Advisor, starting from the beginning of March. She is an expert in anticipating the future training needs of the financial sector, lobbying and cooperation with financial corporations and various labor market operators. Kallonen has previously acted as Head of Financial Work and Competence at Finance Finland (FFI).


“Aalto University School of Business is a major European hub of economic and financing expertise. At the same time, Finva, Aalto EE and Aalto PRO are major trainers of financial sector personnel in Finland. We organize almost all the general investment services industry qualifications exams and insurance programs in Finland. She will bring us new and diverse expertise, which will help us to make of our content even better. As we also aim to continue to expand internationally, Tarja’s extensive experience of European cooperation networks is particularly valuable to us,” says Aalto EE’s Group Managing Director, Professor of Practice Pekka Mattila.

“In addition to the Nordic countries, Finva is extending its financial training outside the actual financial sector. Here too, Tarja Kallonen's insight, extensive experience and networks will play a significant role. Not forgetting Finva’s core target group in the financial sector, of course,” says Finva's Director Paula Salonen.

“I am very excited to be involved in developing the skills of financial sector personnel at Aalto EE. I believe that the most important factors for the work of the future are still lifelong learning and the reconciliation of working life and education. These have a significant impact on employees’ well-being and corporations’ profitability,” says Tarja Kallonen
