Time: Monday 2nd September, at 16:30–appr. 18:30
Venue: Ground floor lobby, Ekonominaukio 1

Aalto University School of Business welcomes the students starting their Master’s studies to meet and mingle with the School of Business community – especially with the alumni graduated from the School!

The idea of the Welcome Evening is to encourage Master’s students to create networks, learn new things and find interesting career paths already in the beginning of their studies! The event is a part of the orientation week and is for everyone starting their Master’s studies at the Aalto University School of Business (also for the School of Business bachelor students continuing their Master’s).

In the event, there will be alumni representing all School of Business Master’s degree programs (the names and organizations of participating alumni will be published here before the event). Our alumni will share their own experiences on how they have combined studying and learning with different career paths. In addition there is an interesting panel discussion focusing on the skills needed in working life. The panelists represent the School of Business partner companies.

As you have about two years to go until graduation, this event is an excellent way to start planning your future career, and our alumni are there to help and give you advice!
