Timo Korkeamäki, Dean at the School of Business has invited the International Advisory Board, comprising international experts from the world of business and higher education, to support the development of the operations of the School of Business. Participants include Rector Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger (Vienna University of Economics and Business), Pia Höök, Vice President of Culture at Skanska, Former Dean Robert Kennedy (Nanyang Technological University), Former Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri, and Dean Daniel Traca (Nova School of Business and Economics).

With the new advisory group we will get more feedback from international actors on the activities of the School of Business as well as new development ideas.

‘Our main goal is to bring the School of Business closer to our international peers in learning, research, and societal impact. The School of Business has long been looking for benchmarks and best practices from other countries, and the activities of the group that has now been announced is moving this work forward. We will gain new knowledge of the international labour market and how to prepare our students for it. We look forward to ideas to improve both our curriculum and our international appeal,’ Dean Timo Korkeamäki says.

‘Aalto is familiar to me over a period of many years both through accreditation processes and the CEMS programme.I expect that through the activities of this group I will get a chance to get a deeper understanding of the activities of the School of Business and to get to see the development of the School of Business in the coming years,’ says former Dean Robert Kennedy.

‘I am very happy that we are getting the opportunity to acquaint a high-level group of experts with the activities and goals of the School of Business. All the members of the International Advisory Board have extraordinarily extensive experience in their own organisations and the best practices in them. I hope that the members will primarily serve as a sounding board which comments on our activities and development ideas,’ says Timo Korkeamäki.

The International Advisory Board will meet twice a year, with one virtual meeting  and another one at the School of Business in Otaniemi, Espoo (Finland).
