Application details for The Helsinki School of Economics

The Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) is the largest and leading business school in Finland and a globally acknowledged player in management education. We are recognized for our close ties with the business world, our high-quality research and an open, international atmosphere conducive to learning and personal development.

HSE has been accredited by all three international organizations that certify business schools: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. This Triple Crown accreditation elevates HSE into a category shared by only 30 other universities in the world.HSE is an innovative and lively community of about 4,000 students and over 500 researchers, teachers and service personnel. Each year, more than 600 new students enter one of HSE’s two campuses, the main one located in Töölö, Helsinki, and another in Mikkeli.We offer Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree programs, as well as international MBA and Executive MBA programs. Several programs are conducted entirely in English

An applicant who already has an appropriate Bachelor's/Master's degree may apply for a Master's degree program. The appropriate degrees are defined in the Admission Guide. If you know Finnish, please go to the Finnish webpage, even if planning to apply to a Master's degree program taught in English. This site is only for applicants who do not know Finnish.

The Master of Science (Economics and Business Administration) degree is a higher academic degree (second-cycle degree) in Finland and equals to 120 ECTS credits which corresponds to two years of full-time studying. The student may also be assigned supplementary studies (max 30 ECTS credits). Studying towards the Master's degree does not suit to students working full time. Depending on the course, the lectures may be during the daytime or also in the evening.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and Language Test

The deadline for GMAT result and language test result (if required, see Admission Guide) is the same as the deadline for applications. For GMAT result the unofficial score report, if got from the test organization, is enough by the application deadline, but the official report must come later directly from the test organization.

See Admission Guide for the language tests and levels that are accepted. HSE does not necessarily expect to get the score report from the test organization.
