Fulbright-Hanken Distinguished Chair in Business and Economics

The Fulbright Center is a service organisation that specialises in academic exchange between Finland and North America. The main goal is to support the internationalisation of Finnish universities and research.

Hanken School of Economics has signed an agreement with the Fulbright Center regarding the grant programme Fulbright-Hanken Distinguished Chair in Business and Economics. The agreement provides prominent American Scholars the opportunity to lecture and conduct research during a 3-6 month visit at Hanken. During the stay, the scholar will also contribute in disseminating Hanken’s research and knowledge within the business community and society.

The agreement strengthens Hanken’s international profile, especially among scholars and universities in the US. Our networks will be broadened in the US, opening up the possibilities for new forms of co-operation.

Fulbright-Hanken Distinguished Chair is fully booked for 2021. The earliest possible starting date for new exchanges is term 2022-2023.

How to apply

The U.S. program partner in the Fulbright Distinguished Chairs Program is the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES). Applications are submitted through CIES, which pre-screens the applications in the United States and forwards the recommended dossiers to the Fulbright Center in Finland for final selection. Applicants are advised to contact the Finnish host institution well ahead of time to solicit an invitation letter for their application.

Information to Hanken faculty will be sent out once the application round opens (every spring).
