PhD supervision in the Nordic tradition is non-hierarchical, highly interactive, and aims at supporting the student in his or her learning process. At Hanken, personal contact with supervisors is the norm, and the threshold to discuss, ask questions and exchange ideas is low. As a leading, accredited business school, we guarantee you personal supervision by highly competent faculty members. All our PhD supervisors are experienced, internationally active scholars at the cutting edge of their research fields. Students can contact a Degree Supervisor in the major of their choice and discuss their plans prior to application.
