Aiming for top careers in academia and industry

The doctoral studies prepare our doctoral students for academic careers to conduct world class research and teaching as well as for expert positions in the department's research fields, industries and in the public sector.

Our internationally acknowledged research and close connections to diverse industries are the foundations of our teaching. We typically encourage doctoral students to participate in teaching of under-graduate and graduate courses along with their research in order to build their capabilities for potential future academic careers.

Our academic placements include among others Stanford University, Imperial College Business School, University of Southern California, IE Business School, Rotterdam School of Management, McGill University, Sungkyunkwan University, and Erasmus University.

Courses for doctoral students

We organize various field-specific courses for doctoral students. On this page you can see the current course portfolio, which will be annually changed depending on needs of students and possible visiting faculty members. 

In addition to the courses organized by the department, theoretical studies may include doctoral and graduate-level courses taken in other Aalto departments or other universities. For example doctoral courses organized in Aalto Business have been popular among DIEM doctoral students and also often organized in a collaborative manner with DIEM and Business School faculty.
