Quality of Education

Hanken is one of the 76 business schools to hold the so-called Triple Accrediation i.e. the school has been accredited by AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. This means that it belongs to the 1 % of business schools in the world that hold the accreditation. Our Master’s Degree Programme is ranked by Financial Times and Hanken is included on their list of top business schools in Europe. Hanken is also ranked fifth for its research and research linkages by U-Multirank, a feasibility study supported by the European Commission.

Our alumni are sought after on the labour market, which is a strong testament to the quality of education we offer. 95 % have a job within 3 months of graduation. Currently Hanken alumni are placed in more than 70 countries worldwide.

Our courses and programmes are continuously subject to both internal evaluation by students, as well as external evaluation by peers and accreditors. Due to our excellent education, strong reputation within research, and solid finances, Hanken is the only university-level business school in Finland that has maintained its stand-alone status.

Finland’s higher education system is the best in the world according to Universitas 21 Ranking 2018. This ranking has a broader approach than other university rankings, as it assesses the performance of whole countries’ higher education systems instead of evaluating individual institutions. Finland’s position as the leading higher education system comes when looking at countries’ levels of economic development. - StudyinFinland.fi
