Explore careers

When you as a student are looking into what Hanken alumni are doing now, you are bettering your industry knowledge

Hanken graduates are very successful in launching their careers and as a Hanken student a wide selection of careers awaits you!

Career Services follows up on how our alumni are doing, through three different career surveys:

  • Career Services career survey on MSc graduates six months after graduation
  • National career survey on MSc graduates five years after graduation
  • National career survey on PhD graduates three years after graduation

The career monitoring group of The Aarresaari Career Services network of Finnish universities, coordinates the implementation of career monitoring queries on a national level. The universities jointly decide on the questionnaire content, the time of data collection and the method of implementation. This ensures that the materials collected by different universities are intercomparable and that they can be compiled on a national level. However, each university is ultimately responsible for its own query and for submitting it to their own alumni. You can read more about it here. 

Latest results

According to the Career Services career survey on MSc graduated in 2020, up to 86% said that they had found employment already before graduation, and 92% had a job six months after graduation. Of the 2015 graduates, 96% were employed in one way or another when asked in the Autumn 2020. 

Of the PhD that graduated in 2017, 100% of those who replied were employed in one way or another three years after graduation. 

In the menu to the right or the coloured buttons down the page you can see the more detailed results of the surveys in Power BI format. You can click through the tabs and filter with different factors depending on what you are interested in.

Results of the national alumni career survey presented elsewhere (five years after graduation)

Visit toissa.fi and see where graduates in Finland have found employment. On the website you can search for where other graduates in your field have ended up by choosing the field "Kauppatieteet". The service is based on the results of career monitoring surveys carried out in previous years, that is the same data that is presented on Hanken's website in the form of infographics. 

On the töissä.fi website you can among other things find information on which study fields lead to the job you are interested in. You can also read work stories written by alumni. 

Another source where you can find information on the career paths of university graduates in Finland is Vipunen, the Statistics Finland portal of the Ministry of Culture and Education and the Finnish National Agency for Education. Here you can find reports on the placement of university graduates one, three and five years after graduation. These reports are also partly based on the same national alumni career survey data that the töissä.fi website is using and that is used for Hanken's infographics. 

Universities Finland, or Unifi for short, is a co-operational organisation for Finnish universities. For the first time in the Autumn of 2019, Unifi published a joint result report for The Finnish Bachelor’s Graduate Survey (Kandipalaute) and the national career monitoring survey for alumni. The reports can be found on Unifi's website (in Finnish).
