The Aalto Executive Summit brings together Aalto EMBA participants and alumni from all the locations-Djakarta, Helsinki, Poznan, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Tehran. During one intensive week, participants will complete two elective modules while enjoying a unique opportunity to meet and network with other business leaders.

All costs pertaining to attendance at Aalto Executive Summit will be covered by the student, although no tuition fees are applicable in addition to those already paid as part of attending the Aalto EMBA program.

Business Strategy Project

The Aalto EMBA program includes a Business Strategy Project (BSP) carried out in a team with the final aim of developing an analytical tool or solution for a concrete strategic business problem faced by a company. The project aims to utilize the insights gained during the program, with project groups organized to maximize use of the individual competencies of their members. Skilled tutors from Aalto University help the teams develop an update on the state-of-the-art in academic research related to the project topic.
