The digital transformation will have implications for how we work, how we run our business and how we reorganize the workforce. The Summit has looked at these important themes including strategy, performance and leadership – all relevant for future success.

This year’s 150 Summit participants are representing 14 different nationalities and different industries, types and sizes of organizations. Furthermore, they are either current or future participants of Aalto EMBA, Aalto MBA and Global Leader programs. In addition to the current program participants, a number of Aalto EE alumni, who want to keep abreast of the latest leadership trends and phenomena are participating in the Summit.

As Aalto Executive MBA is turning 30, this milestone is celebrated in the 30th anniversary gala which is part of the summit program.

“Live cases” to accelerate learning 

Along with Aalto faculty, the participants will hear insights from professors and guest speakers from different parts of the world.  Professor Saku Mantere, McGill University, Senior Principal Rumman Chowdhury, Accenture and Executive Vice President Kaisa Hietala, Neste are among the presenters.

This year the Summit includes the Live Case method to further accelerate learning. Live Case is one of Aalto EE’s signature methods. The participants will work on real cases from five different organizations. A  distinguished jury  will evaluate them and on Friday, the last day of the summit, the best solutions to the live case challenges will be awarded.  

“The real strength of Aalto EE's programs is the global reach: the participants have a possibility to study elective modules in many locations around the world. The global networks that are created during Aalto EE -studies are invaluable for one’s professional development and career and have also a significant impact on the organizations they work in”, says Hanna-Riikka Myllymäki, Business Area Director for Degree Programs at Aalto EE.
