Homecoming Day brings hundreds of School of Business alumni and business leaders together to discuss and network on our home campus. During the 2018 Homecoming Day the home campus was still located in Töölö. Since then, the move to Otaniemi and Aalto has been completed. Thus the Homecoming Day 2023 was organized in Otaniemi in the Undergraduate Centre and in our new premises in Ekonominaukio.


The purpose of Homecoming Day is to create meaningful encounters and discussions with fellow alumni. Highlights of the event include reputable keynote speakers, panelists, great food, evening program and friendly networking.
