Then select Class Schedule from the options list.  To navigate the timetable you will need to select the term (e.g., January -- April 2016) and then you will select the subject. Courses numbered from 1000 to 4999 are undergraduate courses and courses numbered from 5000 to 6999 are graduate courses. Undergraduate students can take almost any courses across all disciplines as long as the student has the pre-requisites (and those pre-requisite equivalent courses had to be passed at the home institution at a grade of 65% or higher in order for our academic advisor to give an override on the pre-requisites). Your graduate students can take courses that are offered under the MBA Program”.

    The new Erasmus+ programme allows several exchanges

    Hanken offers all students the possibility to go on exchange once during their studies. The exchange studies should fit into your degree and not prolong your studies. According to the latest news regarding the new Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020), the Erasmus+ programme allows students to participate in the Erasmus Exchange programme several times. This means if you have already been on Erasmus exchange before your studies at Hanken you can now also apply for Erasmus exchange on Master level through the Hanken Exchange Programme. Due to regulations of the European Union this was not possible before. Please note that the duration of your exchange is one semester only.
