Rector Karen Spens is awarded with the Commander of the Order of the Lion of Finland on the Finnish Independence Day, 6 December.

During her time as Rector, Karens Spens has had teaching and the teaching environment as one of her areas of focus. Spens has also increasingly included the business community in the development of teaching.

Today, Spens is engaged as a lecturer at business schools globally on how a Business School of international standard can be developed to meet today's requirements.

"I am honored and moved by the award and I look forward to wearing it as I represent Hanken at the Independence Day Reception on Friday", says Spens.

The decorations of Finland’s Orders are conferred by the President upon citizens who have distinguished themselves in the service of Finland.
