“To be honest, I didn’t even know about Aalto University or Finland that much before applying for the Aalto EMBA program.

But when I began to look into it, I discovered that Finland is a leading country in education. I knew I’d made the right choice!” says Aalto EMBA participant Vivi Herawati Sim, Finance Manager,  PT Thales, Indonesia.

“The Aalto EMBA studies were much more rewarding than I expected”, says Vivi Herawati Sim. She especially appreciates the way teaching and learning are organized at Aalto University Executive Education.

“It may be down to cultural differences, too. As an Indonesian, I’m used to compiling a lot of presentations and having long days. The Aalto EMBA modules are designed to be concise, and in my view have been put together more sensibly.”

Vivi Herawati Sim’s current title of Finance Manager doesn’t fully describe her wideranging role, as in addition to finances, her responsibilities include HR and legal issues.

“Aalto EMBA has helped me believe in myself,
 and given me a clearer view of what I want to achieve next. I have the talent to become a leader, but it’s something you can’t rise up to without the right opportunities. The EMBA program has instilled in me that those opportunities are worth pursuing.”

Aalto EMBA coach Ben Nothnagel receives special mention.

“I’ve recommended his lectures even to a friend in Paris. I told her Helsinki is close to Paris, and Nothnagel’s teachings would definitely be beneficial.”
