As of March 1st, 2015, Aalto University School of Business in Helsinki, Finland, appointed Dr. Paul Viio Professor of Practice in Sales.
”Sales has until recently clearly been undervalued in an academic context. A possible reason for this seems to have been the lack of academically qualified people who also have experience from sales – who have been conducting, managing, and leading sales organizations. This has resulted in the academic community and business not always understanding each other. In my new position as Professor of Practice in Sales at Aalto School of Business–which I am delighted to have been appointed–I will focus on bringing business and academic sales research and education closer to each other.” – Paul Viio
