Aalto EE firmly established among the world’s top 50

Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) has improved its position in customized programs in the annual Financial Times global ranking.

Each spring, the Financial Times’ ranking rates both open-enrollment and customized programs. Aalto EE came 46th out of thousands of peers. A slightly lower placement in open-enrollment programs lowered the overall rating by one place compared to last year. The company remains the only Finnish player in the world's fifty best providers of executive education.

According to the ranking, achieving the goals of customized training programs, and willingness to recommend Aalto EE's services and continue cooperation with Aalto EE were the areas that improved most compared to last year. The company's continuous quality and feedback monitoring confirms this trend.

“The entire Fazer Energizer program was built through cooperation. Aalto EE is so customer-driven that the program was built around Fazer’s own needs. We discussed issues such as the organization’s idea of energy, and how this shows in the working community and management,” says Mika Videman, Senior Vice President, HR.

”While we can’t and shouldn’t read too much into individual rankings, it is useful to monitor trends. We have invested a great deal in new training partners and better forecasting in our customer work. Our team is even better than before at sharing the world and goals of the customer organization,” says Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director of Aalto EE and Professor of Practice at Aalto University.

International reach is improving

Aalto EE already operates in 13 countries and implements programs for key global companies and institutions. Strong internationalism was also reflected in the FT's ranking, in which - of the Nordic players - the company was the one which had reached the most international group of participants, in percentage terms, with customized programs.

One international customer is the Fortune 500 ICT company, Orange. For example The ”Talent Leadership Development Program” was conducted in cooperation with their own internal training organization, Orange Campus.

"We have a lot of trust in Aalto EE to manage such a key and strategic people program for Orange. The partnership between Orange Campus and Aalto EE has been a very positive experience for us. We appreciate the flexible and adaptable approach taken by Aalto EE, and the professionalism and high standard demonstrated by their staff. This program has helped to anchor our key talent and engage them proactively for their professional and career growth,” says Jessie Lim, Head of Human Resources Asia Pacific, Orange.
