Program content

Our programme offers you a balanced mix of a broad perspective and a deep insight into economic theory. The curriculum is designed to match the demand for professional economists in business and government.

The specialisation builds on a logically consistent structure, which relies on rational criteria for decision-making. Economics offers perspectives on essential features of all types of markets ranging from local retailers to global currency markets.

The Master's studies consist of compulsory core courses in:

  • microeconomics
  • macroeconomics
  • econometrics
  • specialised courses in other important fields of economics

The courses oriented towards microeconomics deal with:

  • analysis of competition with a focus on how firms, organizations, and industries should be organised to achieve efficiency
  • analysis of corporate strategies to create sustainable competitive advantages and of asset markets characterized by incomplete information

Courses offered in macroeconomics focus on:

  • economic policy
  • why we have structural unemployment and how it can be reduced
  • why monetary policy should be conducted by an independent central bank
  • which policy options are available to overcome the financial crisis

Scholarships & funding

Several scholarship options are available. Please check the university website for more information.


The fee for non-EU/EEA students at Hanken is 25000 EUR.
