The Subject Economics

The economics unit at Hanken is part of the Helsinki GSE initiative

Economics forms the basis for the systematic thinking on economic interaction in society. The subject offers basic perspectives and analytical tools that can be applied on an individual, corporate, national or a global level. Economics is the subject to choose if you want to obtain deeper insights into how markets work and interact.

The economics unit is part of the Helsinki Graduate School of Economics, an academic initiative bringing together three Finnish universities – Hanken School of Economics, Aalto University and the University of Helsinki. Helsinki GSE’s mission is to, with the enhanced tripartite co-operation between the key actors, produce outstanding research with maximum academic impact. Read more about Helsinki GSE here.

The economics unit at Hanken is particularly active in the research areas of industrial organisation, behavioral economics and experimental economics.
