The redesigned MBA programme with inspiring novelties and value adding content started in October 14. A group of 19 new MBA students, FN16, gathered for a kick-off day at Savoy in Helsinki. A week later the Starter workshop will be held at Greenalands in Henley-on-Thames. There we will join the German, Maltese and Asian MBA group, and will get the first touch of what the Henley MBA learning journey is all about.
In November it is time for their first workshop in Helsinki – Managing Processes and Systems. The next step is to integrate theory with practice by completing an assignment developing their companies.
We wish you all good luck!

Pia Aaltonen-Forsell is CFO of Outokumpu, the largest stainless steal producer in Europe. She does not have the most obvious background for a CFO: she is Master of Social Sciences in economics. She thinks that her background is a great asset, since as a CFO you need to understand the economy in general, not just business.

But what is the work life relevance of academic research skills? How can I benefit from the research experience in my everyday work?
