Professor Tikkanen’s doctoral workshop on careers in academia was a success

The Nordic Academy of Management funded workshop had 20 qualified participants out of whom eight from Aalto

Professor Henrikki Tikkanen held a Nordic Academy of Management (Nordisk företagsekonomisk föreningen) funded doctoral workshop titled “Work and Career in Business Schools” in Stockholm Business School in the end of May. The course provided guidance to 20 qualified doctoral candidates from various academic institutions across Europe who are going to pursue a research-oriented academic career after their dissertation. The aim was to help the doctoral candidates to understand the details of modern tenure-tracks, high quality publishing and business school sector dynamics.

 “I believe this course also highlighted the importance of research that is impactful and relevant to the industry”, said doctoral candidate Hedon Blakaj.

In addition to professor Tikkanen, who is also a tenured professor in Stockholm Business School, the faculty included Dorte Salskov-Iversen (Copenhagen Business School), Kimmo Alajoutsijärvi (Jyväskylä University), and Kerttu Kettunen (Turku School of Economics). Out of the 20 qualified doctoral candidates, eight were from Aalto University and four from the Department of Marketing.
