Title: Hanken Newsletter 3-2012
Abstract: Design is with us at all times, and this year it has played a special role for many of us, not least because of Helsinki being the World Design Capital 2012. At Hanken, and to me personally, design entails many things, but I want to highlight two perspectives in particular. Firstly, we at Hanken focus on the design of our study programmes and service offerings, from bachelor to doctoral studies, and furthermore to executive education. This involves long-term development of content and learning methods, but it also requires a dynamic capability to create tailor-made solutions for our partners. Secondly, Hanken has hosted several international conferences this year. As it happened, the theme of the 28th EGOS (European Group for Organizational Studies) Colloquium 2012 in Helsinki was design. This conference brought almost 1,800 leading organisation scholars to Hanken and Aalto University to reflect upon the meaning of design in organisation theory and practice. As the former chairman of EGOS, and as a representative of one of the organisers, I felt really proud of Hanken. I believe this is what we want and need to do to remain as a leading international business school.
