Career Services for School of Business students

Our goal in the School of Business Career Services is to enable our students to find meaningful work that corresponds to their studies. We support our students during their studies and offer opportunities to learn about different career paths and job opportunities in different industries.
Aalto University School of Business offers wide range of career services for our students

Since 1991, the School of Business Career Services has acted as a bridge between the School of Business students and employers.

We are part of the same unit as the Corporate and Alumni Relations of the School and work in close cooperation with Aalto University Career Design Lab. We also collaborate with many other networks within Aalto University, as well as nationally (e.g. Aarresaari Career Services network of Finnish universities) and internationally. We serve both students and employers and provide information and statistics on the placement of our graduates.

We support students in designing their careers by providing

  • training,
  • personal career advice,
  • Aalto JobTeaser job portal as well as the Highered and GoinGlobal portals for international job search,
  • Aalto Talent Expo and Summer Job Day recruitment fairs and other recruitment events, 
  • career events with alumni,
  • mentoring programme,
  • Aalto International Talent programme for our international students,
  • internship support and grants and
  • career and placement information in our communication channels.

Our communication channels include e.g. the Aalto BIZ CareerMail newsletter, Instagram, Facebook and direct emails.

Priority: listening to clients

We actively collect student feedback on all of our services and we use the feedback to improve our services. Every year, we send a customer satisfaction survey to all students at the School of Business. In addition, the business students have a possibility to impact our services via the annually selected External Relations Student Council. The Student Council has been sparring our activities (with employers and alumni) since 2009. The students are recruited to the Council in the early fall.

The Council consists of students who represent the School's various majors and different starting years, as well as a KY representative. In addition to the basic meetings, the Council and representatives of the School's partner companies meet at the end of the academic year in a joint workshop, where the results of our annual student survey are reviewed and e.g. services connecting students and employers are developed.

It was very interesting to get to discuss matters such as the various problems of recruitment with representatives of the partner companies.

Students are satisfied with our services

According to the data obtained from various surveys, our students are generally satisfied with our services. This shows e.g. in the Universum's global study regarding student satisfaction. We also get good feedback from our alumni who respond to the School's placement survey.

In 2017, the Aalto University Student Union awarded the Seal of Approval Award to the School of Business Career Services. The AYY Seal of Approval is a prize awarded to practices of Aalto University, which the students find successful. 

You'll reach us via [email protected]. On this page you will find more information about our services and our contact information. See also our page and recommendations especially for School of Business International Students who are looking to find employment and integrate into the Finnish working life.
