Charming Helsinki revolves around its harbour and boasts beautiful art-nouveau buildings, museums, and old fashioned cafes and restaurants. Friendly and lively, it’s considered one of the world’s design capitals and also offers a lively music, art venues and an emerging gastronomic scene. It has several higher education institutions and a large student population, meaning it’s geared to meet the needs of students from all walks of life.
Established just five years ago, Aalto University is a new, innovative university that merges art, technology and economics. It was created by a merger of the Helsinki School of Economics, Helsinki University of Technology and the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and its campuses are spread around Helsinki, the vibrant harbourside capital of Finland. The School of Business is one of the highest ranking in Europe. The School of Business is the only business school in Finland – and one of only a few in the world – to have been labelled as excellent by three of the world’s leading accreditation bodies, AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.
