Big data was supposed to be the “new oil” and the smartest thing businesses can have. But researchers claim data is not of much help if you don’t know how to use it. Journalist Ville Blåfield examines what type of cultural shift it would take to be smartly data-driven.
Aalto EMBA participant Pauli Torikka, Director, Pulp Raw Materials, UPM, Finland says, that he wanted to be sure that the invested money and time would pay back."The themes and structure of the modules on the Aalto EMBA program seemed interesting, and have proven to be so in practice."
During his lectures, Dr. Mario Raich presents simple models that can be easily put into practice. At the Aalto Executive Summit in Helsinki, Raich’s module offered perspectives for talent development and management.
“To be honest, I didn’t even know about Aalto University or Finland that much before applying for the Aalto EMBA program. But when I began to look into it, I discovered that Finland is a leading country in education. I knew I’d made the right choice!” says Aalto EMBA participant Vivi Herawati Sim, Finance Manager, PT Thales, Indonesia.
“I have added another layer to my knowledge”, describes Aalto EMBA participant Jacob Bojsen, General Manager, Luxottica, Singapore. “Also the network we have gained is an important element. Networking is definitely also one of the reasons I decided to attend the Aalto Executive Summit in Helsinki.”
