Doctoral Studies Support

We form part of the Centre for Research and International Affairs, an administrative unit that promotes and supports research, internationalisation, doctoral studies and quality assurance at Hanken.


The Doctoral Studies Support team serves Hanken doctoral students and their supervisors in producing doctoral theses of high international quality.

We do this by providing information on the Hanken PhD Programme, bearing the administrative responsibility for admissions to the programme, providing support and information to admitted doctoral students and their supervisors, and contributing in other ways to the continuous advancement of doctoral education at Hanken.

This also entails monitoring the funding provided for doctoral studies, providing practical guidance for doctoral students especially during the last stretch of their studies, and participating actively in national and international doctoral education networks. Finally, our tasks also include producing statistics on, following up, and reporting on these different aspects of doctoral education at Hanken.
