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.
