Open and embedded

Business 3.0 represents open culture and low hierarchy. With its central location, Aalto BIZ welcomes all. As digitalization transforms the way we work and study, face-to-face interactions will acquire new meaning and form. As societal embeddedness grows, the surrounding society, alumni and partner networks will play an even more important role in the on-campus experience.

Digital tools will support networking and help people when they want to stay connected, whether they are together or alone.
