We are Uppsalaekonomerna
The main purpose of Uppsalaekonomernas is to conduct educational surveillance in close cooperation with students & universities, with the aim of improving education at the three departments for which the the union is representing: the Department of Business Administration, the Department of Economics & the Department of Statistics. Through this work, students are supported with educational issues & have an important influence in the quality of the economics programme design.
Under leisure the association works for a meaningful & fun life outside of studies through events, sports & other social activities. In the field of Future the association works through close contacts & relationships with the business community. Through lectures, company visits, case competitions, job advertisements & informal meetings, Uppsalaekonomerna offers its members experience, contacts & knowledge for a significant future.
The association is managed by the board consisting of 10 elected members, nine of whom are entitled to vote, responsible for the long-term & strategic work of the organisation. The operational work is guided by the presidency who, together with the association's other elected representatives, committees and bodies, is responsible for the daily activities of Uppsalaekonomerna.
