Doctoral Studies Support

The Doctoral Studies Support team tasks and contacts


The Doctoral Studies Support team serves Hanken doctoral students and their supervisors in creating 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 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 and reporting on these different aspects of doctoral education at Hanken.
