Our School – Our Future

Aalto University School of Business is one of the leading business schools in Europe. We educate experts and leaders for the future and contribute to society through impactful research and long-term partnerships.

There is a strong demand for studies in business anc economics in society and our goal is to grow substantially during the 2020s. With your donation, you can help us to continue offering high-quality education and conducting ambitious research for better business and a better society also in the future. 

The School of Business turned 110 years last year. Honoring its 110th anniversary, we launched a fundraising campaign to ensure that our School is as vibrant for the next 110 years as it is now. By growing and constantly developing our School, we wish to give our alumni a reason to be proud of their alma mater and their valuable degree also in the future. For more information, please read here.
