Helsinki Graduate School of Economics is an academic initiative bringing together three Finnish universities – Aalto University, Hanken School of Economics, and University of Helsinki. We are building on and extending the cooperation between our departments and third-parties.
By joining the forces of three universities, our mission is to produce outstanding research with maximum academic and social impact – both nationally and internationally, to attract and educate the next generation of world-class economists and to offer excellent training across disciplinary borders.
Our ambition is to be consistently recognized both as one of the top institutions for research and education in Economics and as a significant force for developing society.
Helsinki GSE’s objectives are
- to develop, co-ordinate, and carry out international top class research and education in economics,
- to interact with universities, research institutes, and public and private entities engaged in research in economics both internationally and nationally, in particular by also increasing cooperation between economics and other scientific disciplines, and
- to promote the societal and global impact of research in economics.
