Leaders from 19 different countries meet at Aalto Executive Summit in Helsinki on August 22-26, 2016


Leadership and the future of work are clearly hot topics: Aalto Executive Summit, the annual event of Aalto EE and the ninth consecutive one, breaks all previous records.

The number of participants is the all-time high 190. Also the number of countries represented, 19, reflects the truly global nature of Aalto EMBA, Aalto MBA and Global Leader programs. The Summit takes place in the famous Finlandia Hall, one of Alvar Aalto’s masterpieces.

The participants come from a myriad of industries, types and sizes of organizations and are either current or future participants of Aalto EMBA , Aalto MBA or Global Leader programs around the world. Also a number of Aalto EMBA alumni want to keep abreast of the latest leadership trends and phenomena and participate in the Summit. The professors and company speakers come from around the world as well; in addition to Aalto faculty, the participants will enjoy lectures of professors from ESADE, Aalto EE’s Spanish partner and the National University of Singapore to name a couple.

“We are delighted that the topics chosen for this year’s Summit aroused so much interest; developing leadership skills is deemed beneficial and pivotal and today’s leaders are determined to be well prepared to lead change and transformation of organizations. Aalto Executive Summit enables exchange of experiences with a large group of global and experienced leaders. The real strength of Aalto EE's programs is the global reach: the participants get to choose between many locations to study. The global networks that are created are invaluable for one’s professional development and career,” says Hanna-Riikka Myllymäki, Business Area Director for Degree Programs at Aalto EE.
