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.
