Projects

Every year Uppsala Business and Economics Student Association organises several supplementary courses, 20 parties, 35 “gasques”, activities together with more than 100 companies and much more. We have a fashion show, a regatta, four sports tournaments, seven sport practices a week, and we offer our members 27 chances to travel abroad. Almost all of these activities are arranged by project groups formed out of our 350 active members. Of course we want you to be one of those, so that the association can keep developing with the help of your personal ideas, perspectives and knowledges.

Uppsala International Week

As a part of the project group, you will work together with the project manager and vice project manager in the planning and execution of Uppsala International Week. The responsibilities of the project members vary, but as a whole consist of three main areas

Communication (2 places)
As a part of Communication, you will largely have free reign in spreading awareness of the project and the Uppsala International Week concept. The work will primarily be comprised of making students in Uppsala more aware of the project – we want everyone in Uppsala to know what Uppsala International Week is. How to accomplish this is a part of the new communication group members’ responsibilities, the sky is your limit! For this role we are looking for candidates, who are creative, full of ideas and are ready to take the project to new heights! Previous experience with Photoshop, video editing, and other marketing-related skills is plus but not a requirement. As a part of Communication you will gain valuable marketing and communications skills.

Event (3 places)
As a part of Event, you are responsible for all of the activities during the week with the exception of the company visits. In previous years, there has been an overnight at a cabin outside of Uppsala, a trip to Stockholm, a gasque at a nation, an activity-packed pub-crawl and much more. For this role, we are looking for candidates, who are organized, outgoing, goal-driven, and, of course, want to show off Uppsala’s best side! As a member of Event you will acquire experience with budgeting, logistics and event management

Corporate Relations (3 places)
As part of Corporate Relations, you are responsible for financing the project. Given the goal of having the week be completely free for the participants, this is a very important part of the project work. Company sponsors have previously financed the project, and other contributions will take a new direction this year. If you are interested in networking and establishing valuable contacts for the future, this role should be of particular interest for you. For this position, we are looking for candidates, who are driven, stubborn, and outgoing.

During the interview, we will ask you to present which roles in the project you are most interested in, given the project descriptions that you have read. We will take your wishes into consideration during the selection process.

How does it work?

During the spring semester we’ll open up a number of “Application periods” where you can apply to our projects. In most cases you apply by filling in a short web form. We recommend doing this as thoroughly as possible. How the process goes on from there depends on what project and the committee you are applying to, but be prepared for an interview with the committee presidents. You will, however, get notified within a couple of days. If you succeed, you and your project group will have a start up meeting and some training – then it’s go time!

How do I find out more?

Talk to any Elected member and they will tell you more! Or send an email, attend a committee meeting or swing by Borgen, our association house, to eat your lunch. If can be fun to talk to active project groups to know more about how it is to do projects within the association in general – but when it comes to details about a specific project it is best to talk directly to the committee presidents. You find their contact details through the Activity tags below.

We look forward to hearing from you, and wish you the best of luck with your application!
