GPA or Aptitude test
Applicants to the PhD programme must prove their aptitude, which can be done in two different ways:
1. Holding a master's degree or higher obtained within the EU/EEA (or a Hanken Partner University) and with a GPA of at least B (U.S. scale)
2. Completing a GMAT/GRE test
If you do not fulfil either of these requirements, you will unfortunately not be considered eligible for Hanken's PhD programme. Read below for further information regarding the two options.
1. Applying using your degree
Applicants applying with a qualifying degree obtained in an EU/EEA country or a Hanken Partner University must fulfill the following requirements:
2. Applying using a GMAT/GRE test
Applicants who do not hold a degree obtained within the EU/EEA or a Hanken partner university, or if the degree GPA is too low, may instead apply using either a GMAT or GRE test.
A GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or GRE (Revised) General Test (Graduate Record Examination) are tests designed to measure the skills shown to help graduate business students succeed in the challenging curriculum. The tests assess verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing skills.
Both the GMAT™ Online Exam and the GRE® General Test At Home are accepted as an alternative to test centers.
The latest date to take a GMAT/GRE test is the same date as the application deadline. A GMAT/GRE test score is valid for five years.
The official test result is to be sent directly to Hanken from the test organiser.) The sharing request for the official result has to be made before the application deadline. You may also enclose an unofficial test score report to your application.
