The theme of the alumni day on Friday 27 January 2023 is "Managing Disruption", which we will discuss together among the alumni, the academic community and the influencers of the economic life. The day continues with dinner, music, dancing and delightful encounters with fellow alumni. The day program will be held at Aalto University's Undergraduate Centre, at Otakaari 1, and the evening party at the School of Business at Ekonominaukio 1.

The keynote speech (in English) of the main seminar will be given by Pekka Lundmark, President and CEO of Nokia. The speech will be followed by a discussion (in Finnish, simultaneous interpretation available in English) moderated by Vesa Puttonen, Professor of Finance, and Eeva Vilkkumaa, Assistant Professor of Management Science. They will interview, in addition to the keynote speaker, two guest speakers: Leena Mörttinen, Permanent Under-Secretary at the Ministry of Finance, and Eerika Savolainen, CEO of Slush. The host of the day is Timo Korkeamäki, Dean of the School of Business.

All the academic departments of the School of Business will be represented in the versatile parallel program that follows the main seminar. You can find the parallel sessions in the program listing below by clicking on the plus sign of the titles. For each session, it is also written in which language it is organized (FI/EN). You can sign up for the different sessions when buying your ticket to the event. The detailed content of the parallel sessions will be updated during the fall. 

The new Alumnus/a of the Year of the School of Business will also be announced at the Homecoming Day.
