Hanken merges two departments

Hanken merges two departments

As of January 1, 2019, Hanken has merged the Department of Economics and the Department of Finance and Statistics into the Department of Finance and Economics.

Professor Timo Korkeamäki is the Head of the new department. The immediate effects of the merger will be hardly visible – the economics, finance, and statistics courses taught by the new department’s faculty will run as before.

-However, since our three subjects have so much in common, I see great potential for synergy gains in the longer run when it comes to teaching, research, and also administration. The change will benefit our research output, and especially our students”, says professor Korkeamäki.
