As of today, the International Committee’s main focus is to operate as a link between business and economic students in Uppsala and the international labour market. Together with our active project members we actively work to strengthen this link through our projects within the committee. Our vision is to offer our members the opportunity to gain international experience during and after their studies at Uppsala.
The International Committee is responsible for all international activities within the association. We offer our members everything from career trips, to opportunities to meet with various types of businesses and companies abroad, to social activities such as welcoming weeks for exchange students in Uppsala. The International Committee constantly strives to give our members the best chance of succeeding in building a professional network within the international labour market. Our goal is to, through our projects and activities, help you to explore your interest and eventually achieve a a future international career.
The committee meetings
The International Committee has committee meetings every odd-week Wednesday between 3.15-4.15pm. The meetings take place at the KPMG Arenan in our association building Borgen and everyone who is interested is welcome to join. Every meeting has a specific theme with the goal of giving our members a better understanding about the committee and our projects. Furthermore, the purpose of the theme is to build a bridge between the international labour market and our students. Examples of previous themes at meetings are, for instance, “Leadership skills,” “CV-workshop,” “Corporate Social Responsibility,” and “Meet our project groups”.
The International Committee has, besides its projects and project members, a president and a vice president who have comprehensive responsibility over the committee. The president and the vice president are in charge of the operational issues of the committee and work to support and a guide for the project groups. This include tasks such as mediating contact internally between the project groups and the rest of the association and running start-up and follow-up meetings for the project groups. They are also responsible for arranging and executing the committee meetings. As of today, the president and the vice president of the International Committee have similar responsibilities. Below you will find a more clear description of their roles and tasks.
