Wärtsilä takes part in Hanken’s fundraising

Wärtsilä donates a total of EUR 1,300,000 to Finnish universities between 2016–2017.

Hanken School of Economics is one of the recipients along with Aalto University, Helsinki University, Vaasa University and Åbo Akademi University.

“Wärtsilä wishes to support university education and increase cooperation with universities and the external science community. We have very good experiences on working together with Finnish universities, and we see that high-quality university education plays an important part in keeping up Finland's competitiveness,” says Wärtsilä’s President & CEO Jaakko Eskola.

The fundraising campaign HANKEN RETURNS will continue until 30.6.2017 and has, with this donation included, so far raised more than 6,8 million euro. The aim of the campaign is to secure Hanken’s unique position as Finland’s only independent business school.
