Top reasons to study here

  • Research-based education.
  • Integrating social responsibility and sustainability in all activities.
  • Embracing a high degree of internationalisation in spirit, content and actions.


Hanken School of Economics, one of the oldest business schools in the Nordic countries, was established more than one hundred years ago. Today, Hanken is the only stand-alone business school in Finland. 


We offer academic programmes on all levels (BSc, MSc and PhD) at two locations, in Helsinki and Vaasa.

Hanken is the first university in Finland to introduce a mandatory semester abroad as an integrated part of the curriculum. The students are thus offered a unique opportunity to create their own international networks for life through an exchange or internship period abroad. These lifelong networks are created both internationally and at Hanken. They permeate the studies and play an important role in the excellent placement of our alumni on the international job market.


Research at Hanken is carried out within all departments, with a special focus on four selected areas of strength. Many of our researchers are at the absolute forefront of their field. Our cooperation with the corporate world is reflected in joint research projects, in active interaction through our partner programme as well as the generous support we receive in our fundraising.


Career Services act as a link between students and the corporate world, helping our students to find relevant employment.

Our comprehensive services offer companies convenient, reasonable priced and, when needed, custom-made solutions for recruiting students and promoting visibility through various events and marketing services.

The Student Union of Hanken School of Economics, SHS, was founded in 1909. During the years the union has carried a great variety of names and been engaged in many different fields of activity. SHS received its current status as a veritable students’ union in 1975, in the process of a university reform. The union is today an independent public juridical entity, regulated by the decree on students’ unions.
