Martti Hetemäki, Doctor of Social Sciences, has been appointed as professor of practice at the Helsinki Graduate School of Economics as of 1 March 2020. The professorship is shared equally by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki.

From 2013, Permanent Secretary Martti Hetemäki has directed the work of the Ministry of Finance of Finland. At the end of February 2020, he will be relinquishing his position.

Hetemäki has had a noteworthy career in the service of the Ministry. Before being appointed as permanent secretary, he served as an under-secretary and, prior to that, as director general of the Economics Department, among other positions. Hetemäki is also the chair of the board of Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund.

“As I have previously publicly stated, assuming the position of professor of practice would be an interesting new challenge. It is great to get to tackle that challenge in the research community of the Helsinki GSE,” says Martti Hetemäki.

Martti Hetemäki has a doctoral degree in social sciences from the University of Helsinki.

The mission of the Helsinki Graduate School of Economics, established in the spring of 2018, is to expand the scope and improve the quality of education and research in economics in Finland, as well as to promote cooperation between economics and other fields of science. The Helsinki Graduate School of Economics is a unit jointly managed by Aalto University, the University of Helsinki and the Hanken School of Economics.
