Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) appointed Dr. Katja Ahoniemi as the Associate Director of Degree programs starting August 29, 2016. Prior to this she has served as the Program Director of the full-time MBA program at Imperial College London. Ahoniemi’s substantial international experience and her knowledge of the academic field will enhance and support the implementation of the company’s global growth strategy.  

Katja Ahoniemi holds a PhD in Economics from Aalto University School of Business, with a dissertation on volatility modeling in financial markets. Her publication "Flows, Price Pressure, and Hedge Fund Returns" was awarded as one of the top papers published in 2014 in the Financial Analysts Journal.

“Katja will strengthen our team of experts in a very valuable way; the competition for the top positions in the world is becoming more and more severe We have every reason to be very proud of our ranking results already now, but Katja will contribute to changing to a new gear in the development of our global partner programs,” says Group Managing Director, Dr. Pekka Mattila.
