Aalto Executive DBA

My DBA journey has reached its end with the defense of my DBA dissertation in June 16, 2017. In this last blog post I wanted to share the Lectio Praecursoria which is the official introduction to the dissertation at the public defense.

Best known in business for his work as the Director of Stockmann Retail and member of Stockmann Group Management team, Jouko Pitkänen is the man who put the company’s new strategy into action and launched a 50-million-euro savings program. Stockmann has undoubtedly played a prominent part in Pitkänen’s life, and yet it is just one phase: he also has a notable past in dance sports, a new career in talent identification – and in a few years, he will also have a doctoral DBA-degree from Aalto EE.

The first Aalto DBA is fresh from the oven! Elina Kukkonen defended her dissertation: ”Gaining more value from Customer Relationships in the Digital Business Environment” on April fools’ day. But our stellar candidate was nobody’s fool; an excellent work! Elina certainly fulfilled all the requirements, both academic and managerial. Aalto EE congratulates its first DBA!

Quite a while has passed since I last updated you on my academic adventures. This is definitely not due to lack of issues to write about, nor is it a sign of a standstill. On the contrary! This article has been waiting to be published for a while in the abyss of the cloud, or my computer... The next one will not wait that long, I promise.

Accreditations and rankings help you make a wise choice about where to get a degree, attend executive programs or find the best customized training solutions for your company. “A degree is like a tattoo, it follows you for life,” says Aalto EE's Academic Director Dr. Mikko Laukkanen.

I am writing this in the library where, at the pace of a snail, (or is there a creature slower than a snail I could use as a metaphor) I am rewriting my first paper, my first “submission”.

The weeks and months since the DBA seminar, my focus in view of advancing my research, (embryonic stage research, I might add…) has been on qualitative research, or more precisely reading books and articles on the topic. “Qualitative business research methods” is namely one of the compulsory courses we all DBA students need to take.

The first blog post from February ended with a promise, and I quote “Next time, I will write the post together with my supervisor just to test the thickness of my academic skin.” So be it. I have invited Professor Henrikki Tikkanen to answer some questions and to share his views on what has happened so far on my academic path. In his world, this fascinating world of academic research, I am, after all, a dilettante.
