The International Committee

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 around the world 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.

The committee meetings

The International Committee has committee meetings every third week on Wednesdays between 4-5pm. The meetings take place at the Arenan in our association building Borgen and everyone who is interested is welcome to join.  Every meeting has a new theme or a new guest. Examples of previous themes at meetings are “LinkedIn Workshop,” “Visit from Business Sweden” and “Meet our project groups”.
