Helsinki GSE organizes itself through research groups. Each research group is responsible for promoting and developing cooperation within the Helsinki GSE community in its research area. The research groups coordinate Masters and PhD level teaching in the Helsinki GSE community.
Each research group organizes and run reading/study groups, student workshops and a seminar series in its own research field.
In addition to the field seminars, there are two seminar series, colloquium and lunch seminar, that covers all the economics fields. Helsinki GSE also lists VATT seminars on its website due to the close cooperation between the organizations.
