Business

The Business Committee is the link between our members and our soon to be employers. The committee’s job is to connect students with companies and organizations. Why? The purpose is employer branding, inspiration, motivation, contacts and a ”real world” connection outside of our studies. Therefore, the Business Committee arranges about 20 events annually in various proportions such as case competitions, workshops, company visits, company presentations and lectures.

Are you interested in developing good connections in our business society during your university years? Do you see yourself as a leader and like to take great responsibilities? Welcome to the Business Committee, we can give you the opportunity to work with some of the worlds largest corporations while you are still in school, how about that?

Does that sound like something for you? Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
