Hanken byggnaden utifrån med flaggor

Hanken Centre for Accounting, Finance and Governance


The Hanken AFG Centre wants to provide a forum for robust and theoretically substantiated research that aims to solve practical accounting, finance and commercial law related problems in organisations and the larger society. Our work is meant to be relevant for practice, policymakers and scholars alike!

We aim to create impact with our research agenda through special interest groups (SIGs) by focusing on the topics of:

  • Sustainability Accounting and Impact Investing (SIG-SAII)
  • Financial Leadership and Good Governance (SIG-FLGG)
  • Data-Driven Decision Making in Finance and Accounting (SIG-DDDM)

Thus, we invite and encourage all scholars in the fields of accounting, finance, governance and commercial law - but also from economics, management and organization studies - to contribute to our mission by collaborating with the Hanken Centre for Accounting, Finance, Governance and Commercial Law for publications and research grants applications. Please contact us for further information.
