Overview

The Finance programme at Hanken School of Economics provides you with tools to quantitatively analyse the most challenging research questions.

Our PhD programme is affiliated with the Graduate School of Finance, and our students take their core finance courses together with students from other GSF schools. The programme is offered in both Helsinki and Vaasa. Other coursework typically consists courses in finance, statistics and econometrics, and economics, taken at Hanken.

Normally, students graduate with a PhD after 4-5 years of full time studies.
