Aalto University’s mission is to build a better world and a stronger Finland. Here science and arts meet technology and business. Established in 2010, Aalto University is strongly future-oriented while at the same time building on the combined 300-year-history of three highly-regarded universities. It was created by a merger of the Helsinki School of Economics, Helsinki University of Technology and the University of Art and Design Helsinki.
Aalto University is a foundation-based university where science and art meet business and technology. The university has set itself the goal of becoming a world-class university by 2020.
Aalto University is committed to achieving this ambitious goal by prioritising high standards of research and artistic activities, quality education that highlights the needs of students, and close collaboration with companies and the rest of the business world. The university highlights the importance of – and the need for – quality and international competitiveness in all of its activities.
