Aalto EE, Valio, DNA & Roschier: Next Gen Marketing Professionals Trainee Programme 2018



Digitalization is pushing marketers to reach new limits and explore new areas. This is not a matter of a momentary disruption but rather a radical move to a completely different way of thinking and doing. To tackle this challenge, Aalto EE, Valio, DNA and Roschier are combining their forces for an 8-month trainee programme: Next Gen Marketing Professionals!

Next Gen Marketing Professionals is back for the third time! It is a diverse, educational training programme provided by Aalto EE (Aalto University Executive Education) in cooperation with DNA, Roschier and Valio. The aim of the programme is to uphold the high standards of Finnish marketing expertise. This year the programme offers more variety than ever and covers virtually all aspects of marketing from strategic brand management, corporate responsibility, content marketing to service design.

The 8-month programme is meant for recent or soon-to-be graduates from universities and universities of applied sciences, offering them the opportunity to become a next generation marketing professional. The programme runs from September 2018 to April 2019 and during that time the trainees get a unique chance to work and train with marketers from one of the top brands in their field of business in Finland: Valio, DNA or Roschier. Each trainee will spend the entire 8 months at one of these companies.

The Next Gen Marketing Professionals programme also includes training days organised by Aalto EE, during which the trainees will learn more about themes such as project management, marketing analytics, and self-leadership. These training days also give the trainees a chance to share their insights and knowledge with each other. Trainees will also get an experienced mentor, to support them in their personal development. In cooperation with two of the biggest agencies in Finland, Dagmar and SEK, trainees will get a glimpse of the world of marketing agencies and how it feels to work on the other side of the table.
