Mallikoulu (English: Model School) was a Finnish television reality show. The first season aired in 2005 in the channel MTV3. However, it wasn't made from the format of America's Next Top Model but from a new one. The show was promoted as a Finnish format. There were still several similarities to the famous American TV show hosted by Tyra Banks. For the Finnish version of America's Next Top Model, see Suomen huippumalli haussa.

At the end of the first season of Mallikoulu, Suvi Koponen was announced as the winner. It is worth noting that, unlike contestants and winners of America's Next Top Model, Suvi Koponen has established a credible modeling career. She has worked for numerous designers including Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Anne Klein, Blumarine, Miu Miu, BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci and Prada. Koponen has also had an editorial in the French Vogue shot by David Sims. Koponen has also appeared in the American Vogue.[1][2][3]

The second season of Mallikoulu was seen in 2006. The winner was 16-year-old Sanni Salminen.[4] Salminen hasn't managed to surpass Suvi Koponen and has not been working much as an international model.
