A great group of fresh and gorgeous Henley students has got their Kick Off to the challenging Henley learning journey yesterday.
Group FN18’s Kick Off was held in Helsinki in Savoy. This group of Fall 2015 consist of a great number of 23 professionals who are excited to begin their route. Journey will get its real start on this weekend at Greenlands campus in Henley UK, where international starter workshop is held.
At the Kick Off the final learning teams were also formed. Pictures of the teams below.
We at Henley Finland wish all our new students the best and good luck with their studies!
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.
One of the key sets of skills that are strengthened during the Henley EMBA journey are research skills. These are particularly necessary in the composition of the final thesis. But what is the work life relevance of academic research skills? How can I benefit from the research experience in my everyday work?
