Mikko Koria

Within a career that spans nearly thirty years of professional management, practice and research in the private, public and the third sectors, my key expertise is linked to the ability to successfully lead complex, multicultural and multidisciplinary organizations and initiatives, linking technical and social goals.

After design & architecture studies at the Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil, and the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland,  I obtained a MBA in design management from the University of Westminster and a doctorate in economics and business administration from the Helsinki School of Economics, Finland.

Over last few years, I was engaged in teaching and research in the areas of managing design in business and innovation at various universities in Finland, Japan, China, Brazil, and Chile, among others. I am currently Professor and Academic Director of the International Design Business Management Program, a joint masters – level multidisciplinary teaching and research initiative of the School of Economics, the School of Art and Design, and the School of Science of the Aalto University.
