The International Committee’s main focus is to operate as a link between business and economic students in Uppsala and the international labor market. Our vision is to offer our members the opportunity to gain international experience during their studies at Uppsala University.
The International Committee is responsible for all international activities within the association. We act as a bridge between students and prospective future employers. This is done by arranging several career trips to i.e. New York, London and Hong Kong where students get the chance to meet with global enterprises. Furthermore, we strive to encourage international networking by inviting over 20 students from all over the world during one week full of cultural exchanges.
Our goal is to help you to explore your interest and eventually achieve a future international career.
