Areas of strength
Hanken School of Economics has since 1994 appointed areas of strength within research and education for a period of five years at a time. An area of strength is defined as an area where the research conducted is of an internationally competitive level. These areas are prioritised when deciding upon investments to research and are appointed by the Board of Hanken for a period of five years at a time.
Hanken's areas of strength for the period 1 August 2013 - 31 July 2018
The appointment of the current areas of strength is based on the evaluation an external committee, consisting of distinguished international academics, undertook of the research at Hanken in 2012. The committee conducted a systematic and objective analysis of the research conducted at all of Hanken's 10 areas of research.
