The Business School In The Happiest Country On Earth

“A big part of the School of Business’s DNA is the entrepreneurial spirit on our campus. It’s a cross-cutting theme across everything we do at Aalto University as a whole. And it’s not just learning how to start a business. You can have an entrepreneurial mindset in a large company, so it’s more a way of thinking.”

Lessons From Sport In The Business School Classroom

“Balancing academics and athletics requires personal discipline, effective planning, and flexibility.

At Aalto University School of Business, I’ve especially appreciated the possibility of being able to create your own study schedules for the busy parts of the athletic season.”
