New partnership between Aalto University Executive Education and GU School of Executive Education strengthens the impact of leadership development


Two strong executive education providers in the Nordic countries – Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) in Finland and GU School of Executive Education in Sweden – signed a partnership agreement in December 2015. The agreement includes delivering joint open enrollment programs and customized solutions as well as deepening cooperation in MBA programs. The first joint activity will be the exchange of selected modules in Executive MBA programs, which will start at the beginning of 2016.

– The partnership builds on decades of experience in offering impactful executive education both in the Nordic countries and globally, says Professor Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director of Aalto EE.

Aalto EE is owned by Aalto University while GU School of Executive Education is owned by GU Ventures, the university holding company, and part of the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. The partnership combines multidisciplinary research from both universities and a joint global network of more than 1,000 professors and experts.

– The strength of the partnership lies in the combination of our Nordic roots and insights to global best practices, says Håkan Ericson, Managing Director of GU School of Executive Education.
