"The benefits of studying Economics at the Aalto University School of Business can be summed up in three points. First of all, you learn a concrete way of analyzing the complex interactions between households, businesses and governments. Secondly, you get broad career opportunities in the private and public sector after receiving a highly valued degree. Thirdly, the network of fellow students, teachers and professors is not only useful in the coming professional life but also gives you lifelong friends."

"Since graduation, I have worked both as Engagement Manager at McKinsey and as a family entrepreneur. I feel that economics gives a wonderful background for a variety of careers. The ability to analyze different phenomena from many angles, understanding their wider context and interdependencies, can be applied anywhere."
