We offer Bachelor's, Master's and PhD degrees in Economics. The study programmes are structured to ensure internationally recognized qualifications and a lifelong human capital.

We are part of Helsinki Graduate School of Economics. Helsinki GSE is a unit for economic research and graduate education that was established in 2018 together with Hanken School of Economics and the University of Helsinki.
