Apply for JOO Studies

JOO Agreement/flexible study right: External students can complete courses at Hanken and Hanken's own students can complete courses at other universities


External students: Want to study business administration, but your own university doesn't offer any courses? Want to study at Hanken? JOO studies might be right for you.


Hanken's own students: Want to study a specific course/subject that is NOT offered at Hanken? Then JOO studies might be right for you!


Note: all applicants have to have completed at least 54 credits at their own university before they can even start a JOO application process. The JOO process is slow and the demands for granting the right to study are high. Thus, we recommend that external students check out Hanken's other offerings first, and that Hanken students visit the study counsellors before they begin the process.

Application Periods

Please note that there is a specific application period for every participating university. Hanken's Office of Study Affairs wishes for Hanken students to hand in their applications to other universities submitted to Joopas by the beginning of April (for courses given at another university during the following autumn term) and the beginning of October (for courses given during the following spring term). Deadline for Hanken's Helsinki students to apply for JOO study right for courses offered at other universities during autumn term 2020 is on April 19, 2020.
