Aalto Executive MBA to be launched in China

Aalto EE's first EMBA program in Asia began already in 1995.

Aalto University Executive Education’s (Aalto EE) flagship program, the Aalto Executive MBA, will be launched in China this year. The Chinese program will begin in Shanghai, but there are plans to organize programs in other Chinese cities in the near future. For Aalto EE, this represents a natural, further strengthening of its presence in the Asian market. The first EMBA program to be arranged in Asia began in South Korea in 1995 and Asia Pacific operations have been run from Singapore since 2000.

'China is a major, fast-growing market characterized by fierce competition. That is why, when entering the Chinese market, it is important to find the right partners who understand its operating logic and share our level of ambition,' says Dr. Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director for Aalto EE and Professor of Practice at Aalto University.

Local partners include Koguan School of Law, Shanghai Jiao Tong University; the ST. DIAGO Overseas Learning Consultancy Center and the Shanghai ESUN Training Center. This year’s QS World University Rankings ranked Shanghai Jiao Tong University 62nd globally while Aalto University was ranked 137th.

The modules will be implemented by Aalto EE and Aalto University faculty together with a local university partner.

'The Financial Times ranks the Aalto EMBA as one of the world's top 100 Executive MBA programs. The cooperation just agreed, will strengthen our impact in Asia, and the partnership will provide a strong basis for the implementation and development of executive education in the Chinese market,' says Dr. Riina Gröhn, Executive Director of Aalto EE’s Asia Pacific operations.
