The Quantum data lab at Hanken combines high technology with economics and invests in digitisation and utilisation of large amounts of data. Through various events, research and teaching, Quantum wants to be at the forefront of so-called data-driven decision-making and value creation.

"Daniel Pasternack has a solid background from the financial sector and a very broad network that he makes available to Hanken", says Benjamin Maury, director of Quantum. "He will be involved in developing Quantum so that we are relevant in the future as well", he continues.

Pasternack also participates in Quantum's events, such as the Hackathon which was arranged 3-5.12.2021, and is involved in the development of courses. He has engaged large companies to participate in arranging a new course in data-driven decision-making that will be launched in the spring.

"Hanken has always been strong in building knowledge and research that benefits both business and society as a whole. I look forward to offering my experience from service production in the finance industry to Hanken and hope that we at Hanken Quantum can create a new way to promote both teaching and research in data-driven value creation", says Daniel Pasternack.

"Data-driven business models, decision-making and analysis are a very central part of most companies' value chain and it is important for future employees and company management to have the tools and understanding of this in order to be competitive", he continues.

Dr. Peter Sarlin was appointed Professor of Practice at Hanken already in 2017 and he has now an extended commitment until 31.8.2022. Sarlin, who is an entrepreneur in AI and machine learning, will also be engaged at the Quantum data lab. He has also lectured at Hanken's course Strategic Growth Investing.
