Abstract: For the first time in its history Hanken School of Economics has commissioned an international committee with academically distinguished members to conduct a systematic evaluation of its research activities. This evaluation will serve as valuable independent and expert-based input for the research priorities of Hanken School of Economics, in particular for its policy with respect to areas of strength. The evaluation report makes a number of general recommendations on processes with potential to improve the productivity of the research activities at Hanken School of Economics. In these recommendations the committee emphasises the importance of 1) shared priorities in the organization as far as research ambitions are concerned, 2) a budget system which supports the incentives for research effort, 3) recruitment of international faculty, and 4) campus-related policies for securing a competitive PhD programme. The evaluation committee has reached the conclusion that four out of the evaluated ten research areas at Hanken School of Economics conduct research that meets the highest international standards. These four areas are Management & Organisation, Marketing, Finance and Economics. In addition, the research areas Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain Management as well as Corporate Geography and Information Systems Science are classified as research areas with a potential to develop towards the highest level of international research. As far as Commercial Law is concerned, the committee considers one subarea, Intellectual Property Law (IP), to meet the highest international standards, whereas other subareas are weaker. The committee also identifies strong elements in the research conducted in Supply Chain Management and Corporate Geography and Information Systems Science. Only one research area, Statistics, was classified not to be internationally or nationally competitive. The report presents a detailed characterisation and assessment of the research conducted in all the areas under evaluation. It also incorporates some highly valuable suggestions for the future development of these research areas.
