“Also the network we have gained is an important element. Networking is definitely also one of the reasons I decided to attend the Aalto Executive Summit in Helsinki.”

As General Manager for global leader in eyewear manufacturer Luxottica Singapore, Jacob Bojsen has a clear aim for his Aalto EMBA studies:

“A desire to become a better leader.”

I wanted to become a stronger candidate in future career opportunities within the company.”

Bojsen felt he already had plenty of practical experience and knowledge in many areas of leadership, but lacked a theoretical background and framework.

“I wanted to get an update on the latest also in the academic world – combine my practical experience with the theories. And I also wanted to become a stronger candidate in future career opportunities within the company.”

“I have added another layer to my knowledge”, Bojsen describes. “Also the network we have gained is an important element. Networking is definitely also one of the reasons I decided to attend the Aalto Executive Summit in Helsinki.”

Luxottica's globally recognized brand portfolio covers more than 40 brands including include Ray-Ban and Oakley. Bojsen had no previous experience in the accessory or fashion industries before joining Luxottica, but he believes the universal business principles apply to all fields.

"Products and customer groups change, but the principles in business remain the same in all industries."
