GSF in brief
GSF is a joint initiative of Aalto University, Hanken School of Economics, Lappeenranta University of Technology, University of Oulu and University of Vaasa. The main objective of the GSF is to promote high quality doctoral education in finance in Finland by organizing advanced level doctoral courses, seminars, workshops and tutorials. GSF offers a well structured teaching program for obtaining a Ph.D. degree in Finance for students registered in the participating Universities.
Approximately 10 students start annually the 4 year PhD program. One and a half years at the beginning of the doctoral studies are devoted mostly to intensive course work that is then followed by research for the PhD dissertation. Majority of the graduated doctors enter the academic world and the rest pursue careers in the private sector. Recent academic placements include assistant professorship positions at Imperial College London, Catholic University of Lisbon, Stockholm University and London Business School.
