Partnership Programme – key to unique collaboration
Partnership Program at the School of Business builds and maintains long-term relationships between corporations and the School of Business. No other Finnish university has a program like ours. It’s a good gateway to other schools of Aalto University as well.
Partnership Program offers a clear model of co-operation and a structure that is based on Account Management service. These help us develop the partnerships with a clear goal in sight and strengthen them towards long-term strategic partnerships.
The partnerships last 2-3 years and the focus areas of collaboration are defined together. At the moment we have 12 companies in the program.
