Lead Your Service Business to Innovation and Growth

The Aalto Service Leader program combines insight from the three fields of Aalto University – business, technology, and design – to give you the tools to innovate and lead service business in a digitalized world of networks.  

The program addresses the following critical questions for any company seeking growth through services:

  • How to take a strategic look at the challenge?
    • develop viable and successful business models and take a position in a service value network
  • How to exploit technology strategically?
    • actively create new markets in the platform economy
  • How to leverage you customers?
    • obtain and exploit distinct customer insight to develop front-row service concepts and customer experience
  • How to do it with your people?
    • lead and inspire your people to deliver winning customer experiences

Companies used to build services around a product; today they need to embed the product in their service. The implications of digitalization for revenues, profits and opportunities are dramatic.

In a digital world, leveraging customer experience is crucial for your success. All this calls for inspiring and lucid leadership. Aalto Service Leader will give you the tools and methods to succeed.

Exploit the driving force of digitalization in both B2B and B2C environments. Learn to capture value in services through business model innovation and explore how to leverage customer and stakeholder experience for competitive advantage. And discover ways to lead your organization and coworkers through the transition.

Up to 4.5 European Credits (ECTS) can be transferred from the Aalto Service Leader program to the Aalto Executive MBA or Aalto MBA program.
