Company of the Week: HEKO – Tuesday

Are you interested in developing your marketing skills? Join our team and events!

Did you know that while you are studying at Aalto University School of Business you are also a member of The Association of Helsinki Business School Graduates (HEKO), and privileged to take an advantage of the benefits that the association offers to its members? The 19 clubs of HEKO aim to promote the professional skills and well being of the graduates by organizing over 200 events and trainings in a year.

Our club (MEKO) is specialized in marketing and we are one of the most active clubs of HEKO. We organize yearly over 15 events and hands-on trainings for over 600 business graduates interested in marketing. Our mission is to develop business graduates’ marketing skills and unite marketing oriented business graduates to network and discuss about the role and the future of marketing. We want to help marketing professionals to succeed in the changing business environment and see more of them in leadership positions in the future.

Therefore we at MEKO also want to support the professional development of the future marketing talents, which is why we work closely with marketing students of Aalto. More precisely, our 9 volunteers’ team including a student representative from the Aalto University Marketing Society (AMS) works tirelessly to create interesting and topical events for you.  Maybe you have already been to one of our events, for example in the Marketing Toolbox event or in the legendary pre-Christmas party? We, together with the AMS, pursue to create events that help students to learn practical skills and that help them to succeed in business life. We want to offer you an opportunity to learn about new marketing trends like marketing automation, inbound marketing and increase your knowledge of new marketing technologies and maintain your know-how while starting or advancing your careers.

I have been a member of the board at MEKO for almost two years now and it has been a great journey.  I have learned a lot while having fun with the other board members. You meet new people, get valuable business contacts as well get to know about the latest marketing trends. This has been an experience that I could recommend to anyone who wants actively develop and organize events as well as meet new people.

There is a large business school graduate community that you are a part of so do not miss the chance to meet and network with your fellow alumna and learn skills that you do not learn in school. Since all our events are available for the students too, we warmly welcome you to participate in our events and trainings. So check out our event calendar at www.heko.fi and follow our postings in Facebook! Hopefully we will see you soon in our events!
