AaltoJOKO® is the leading management training program in Finland, combining scientific knowledge with solid practicality. In the philosophy underpinning the AaltoJOKO® program, the success of companies and communities is based on strategic knowledge and networks, as well as skilled and inspiring managers.
The AaltoJOKO® program offers both fall and spring commencement options—the program content will be the same for all participants. In the fall term, the emphasis is on the renewal of personal management and leadership, and in the spring term, on company strategic management in a changing business environment.
The two annual starting times also allow you to benefit from double the number of networking contacts: For example, the AaltoJOKO® group which starts in the fall will study together with the group that started the previous spring. Study Tour, which takes place every year in January, is common to all the JOKO programs. You can participate in the Study Tour when it best fits you and your organization.
Note that this program is held in Finnish.

Contents and Schedule
The AaltoJOKO® program consists of eight face-to-face modules and two Live Case exercises. The interactive face-to-face modules are 2-3 days long, focused on selected topics led by experienced coaches. Live Case training lasts about 2 months, a period during which learning takes place in practice—through experimentation and exercises.
The AaltoJOKO® group which begins in September will finalize its studies in May. During the fall season, they study together with the previous group that started in February, and in the spring season, they will join forces with the group that starts in February. All groups will go through the same study content, and can optionally participate in the JOKO program joint Study Tour at the beginning of the year. As several groups study together, the participants will be able to network with dozens of executive colleagues during their studies. For example, participants in AaltoJOKO 95 had 38 fellow students—and 41 if they attended the Study Tour!
