Since 2003, Hanken has had an Alumni Council that supports and develops the alumni activities at Hanken. The members of the council discuss possible themes and interesting speakers for different alumni seminars and events, as well as how Hanken can develop and improve its alumni activities. The Alumni Council nominates new Hanken Ambassadors, who are then elected by Hanken’s rector.
The Alumni Council consists of seven alumni members from both Helsinki and Vaasa as well as a representative from the student union. The Alumni Council meets seven times a year and the term of office is three years.
