Economics is the basis of a general and systematic understanding of economic transactions in society. Learn more about majoring in Economics and the unique opportunity to select courses from three universities.

The specialisation builds on a logically consistent structure, which relies on rational criteria for decision-making. Economics offers perspectives on essential features of all types of markets ranging from local retailers to global currency markets.

Courses and outline of studies

The extensive spectrum of high-quality courses offered is made possible through our close cooperation with our two partners within Helsinki Graduate School of Economics Helsinki GSE (formerly known as HECER, Helsinki Center of Economic Research). This collaboration means that you'll be able to choose courses from both Aalto University School of Economics and the University of Helsinki. As of 2020, also Hanken's admitted students will be offered the possibility to complete courses within the Research Master's program, through the Hanken & GSE cooperation.

Programme Structure


  • As a PhD student at Hanken, you have access to a broad range of courses, conferences and workshops both in Finland and abroad. During your studies you have good opportunities to follow and contribute to the knowledge development within your research field. 
  • Subject to approval by your degree supervisor, you can take Hanken's own doctoral courses as well as courses offered by other universities and doctoral programmes in Finland and abroad, such as KATAJA and FDPE in Finland or EIASM in Europe.
  • The courses you study do not have to focus directly on the topic of your thesis. They may well cover a broader topic within your chosen major, or relate to some specific aspect of your field of research.
