The Organisation

Hanken's organisation in a nutshell

Hanken's organisation is divided in departments and administration and support units.

Research and education are organised in departments, that can consist of one or several subjects and host one or more knowledge centres. For the language teaching there is a Centre for Languages and Business Communication.

Each department is lead by a Head of Department and a Department Council. A department with more than one subject can, for each of the subjects, have a Head of Subject. The remit of the Department Council is to develop and evaluate the operations of the department, propose curriculum, budget and personnel plan for the department and ensure that Hanken’s quality assurance processes are being followed.

The administration and support units are organised in Offices for Studies and Admissions, Research and University Services, and International Affairs and External Relations. Each office is headed by a Director and has a Steering Committee. In addition, the Rector has a team of staff supporting preparation, strategic planning, strategic cooperation as well as financial and property management.
