Cooperation between Aalto EE and ESADE expands global reach of both schools in the Executive MBA markets


The Finnish Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) and ESADE Business School, a top Spanish school, have decided to extend their cooperation to their Executive MBA programs. The agreement will strengthen the position of both institutions in the Executive MBA markets and provide their customers with new opportunities. Aalto EE and ESADE have previously cooperated in open enrollment executive programs.

In the global Financial Times ranking, the Aalto EMBA program holds the 76th place while the ESADE's program is 27th. In executive education programs, the Financial Times has ranked both institutions among the top 50 providers. Aalto EE and ESADE are also among the 0.4 per cent of institutions in the global elite that hold the three most respected international business university accreditations.

Both ESADE and Aalto EE's Executive MBA programs consist of core and elective modules. The partnership agreement allows the participants to choose modules from the partner's program. In addition to the exchange now being initiated, Aalto Executive MBA students have the opportunity to choose modules from seven countries, including Iran and South Korea.

"We are delighted to offer a selection of modules from a partner network with an even wider geographical reach. This is one of the elements which other EMBA programs in the Nordic Countries cannot provide," says Hanna-Riikka Myllymäki, Business Area Director responsible for Aalto EE's MBA programs.
