The partnership builds on a broad multi-year collaboration agreement between Finland’s Aalto University and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) signed in December 2018.
Aalto EE and SUTD Academy will develop new joint courses, modules and programmes, especially in technology and management, as well as identify the need for further education and gaps in competencies in various industries.
“We are delighted to launch this collaboration with SUTD Academy,” said Dr. Pekka Mattila, group managing director of Aalto EE. “We both approach leadership education and professional development in a multi-disciplinary manner. In today’s volatile and complex business environment, leaders and professionals need new ways to look at challenges from many different angles in order to stay ahead of the competition and run meaningful and rewarding careers.”
The initial multi-year agreement between Aalto University and SUTD includes joint research and teaching in multiple fields, increases student exchanges and staff and faculty mobility, and advances joint innovation and entrepreneurship.
