The Social Committee is responsible for all of Uppsalaekonomernas social activities. Our purpose is to offer all of Uppsalaekonomernas members a fun time alongside their studies, and also to give you practical experiences that you can benefit from in the future!
We offer all kinds of different events, from dinner parties (also called “gasquer”) with for example business students from Stockholm and Lund to various theme-parties and a spring ball! We even have our very own fashion show!
Social skills are hot in demand on the labour market and the best way to acquire these skills is to practice mingling and networking – and what is more pleasant than to practise these skills during non-contrived forms? Whether you are looking to network with other students, practicing project management by arranging our events or if you just are up for having a good time and partying we are confident that the Social Committee has something to offer!
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions concerning the Social Committee or our activities and events! You can reach us by email or phone (see below) or you can come see us at our committee meetings. Our committee meetings are held every other Monday at 16.00-17.00 at our association premises “Borgen”.
Hope to see you in the future!
