The 10 best applicants who fulfill all of the criteria (below) will be offered admission to study either Humanitarian Logistics in English or Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility in Swedish on MSc level at Hanken. The ranking is based on the applicant's grades attained from the study module's courses.

Admission criteria, all applicants need to fulfill the following and will be ranked based on the applicant's grades in the module's courses:

  •     have signed up as one of the 30 eligible students to the official study module through its Open University or Cooperation quota, and been granted the right to complete the courses through the study module*
  •     attained at least 40 ECTS of the study module's courses, including the courses defined as mandatory for admission (these courses might change during the years - Hanken will take these changes into account when the applicant applies for admission)
  •     these 40 ECTS need to be completed within two academic years (all courses need to be completed and registered on the applicant's transcript before the application time ends in the spring),
  •     attained at least good as a GPA from the courses/40 ECTS (at least 70 out of 100/3 out of 5 on Hanken's scale),
  •     have completed the 40 ECTS/all courses needed for admission with tuition in English with at least the grade 70/good in all courses (or proven your English language skills in any of the other accepted ways),
  •     attained at least a BSc degree from a recognised university, or university of applied sciences before the actual degree studies at Hanken can start (last possible graduation date is thus 31 July that same year),
  •     sent in the application before the application deadline.

If the applicant has not been able to complete 40 ECTS within two academic years (or if the courses have not been registered on their transcript before the deadline) with a GPA of at least good, the applicant cannot sign up to another two-year period, and try to attain the missing courses, or re-take courses in order to gain higher grades. It is not possible to try to apply for admission based on courses completed during a second two-year period. Admission can only be granted based on studies attained during the applicant's first two-year period. The application period is always in the spring, and the first application period for this admission will be held in the spring of 2021 for students who registered for the module in the spring of 2020 or earlier. Students who sign up to the module in the spring of 2020 can try to complete the demanded 40 ECTS by spring 2021 or 2022 at the latest.

*It is not possible to apply for admission without completing the demanded studies through the study module. As an example: one cannot sign up as an external student to the courses through the Open University portal and then complete a selection of courses on their own. This is to ensure that only a maximum of 10 eligible students will be admitted, and that these have attained the needed knowledge, defined by the academic staff, to be able to succeed in their studies.
