Hanken Centre for Corporate Governance has been established to promote systematic research to find arrangements that properly improve the way corporations are being managed, as well as to eliminate arrangements that increase the administrative costs without corresponding increases in benefits.
The centre provides a platform for discussion between academic researchers and practitioners by organizing seminars and events about current issues in Corporate Governance.
The centre is also responsible for the multidisciplinary Master's Degree Programme in Corporate Governance at Hanken.
The Nordic dimension is crucial for the centre. Due to Hanken's historic background the school has a natural advantage in pursuing Nordic cooperation. Existing similarities between the Nordic countries make them a fruitful testing ground for the impact of those differences in corporate governance practices that remain.
