The research track

The research track in economics consists of 120 ECTS

Those willing to pursue the research study track should submit their CV and study transcripts to the head of the economics unit and participate, if so requested, in an interview. Together with the professors of the unit, the head of the economics unit decides whether the applicant has sufficiently solid prior studies and quantitative skills to warrant him/her to pursue the research study track. Only those who already have a study right (Msc in economics at Hanken) can apply to rMsc. 

Due to the way the course work is organized in Helsinki GSE's Research Master program, students should, as a general rule, apply for admission into the research study track (rMsc) already during August and at the latest by the end of the first (P1) Autumn term. Upon completion of their master degree at Hanken, there will be a separate formal notification (in their transcript of records) for those students who pursued the research track.
