About us

The Foundation for Business Students in Aalto University (KY Foundation) aims to further the societal, social, professional and intellectual goals of students in the Aalto University School of Business, as well as those related to studying and the student life.
KY Foundation brings the student body together and implements its mission by financially supporting the students’ leisure activities, cultural and sports events, as well their studies and the prerequisites thereof.

The highest decision-making power is mainly held by KY Foundation’s board, which is in charge of overseeing the foundation’s operations and representing the organization.

The operations of KY Foundation are guided and monitored by the foundation’s supervisory board, which is KY’s Representative Council.

KY Foundation’s Managing Director is Juho Paavola.
