NESU is abbreviation from the words “Nordiska Ekonomie Studerandes Union” or “Nordic Economics Students Union”. NESU was founded in the 1950’s for business students around Nordic countries to enhance communication and cooperation. The NESU board/subcommittee of every city organizes mostly academic table parties, sits. During sits people drink, raise toasts, sing, create long lasting friendships and switch overall badges. Besides sits NESU organizes other unforgettable events where every business student can take part in regardless of where they are from.
NESU is still a lot more than just sits. The main events of NESU are biannual conference weeks, the NESU Spring and Autumn Conferences. These week gather up student from all around the Nordic countries together to build their networks. The Conference is always built around a specific theme. For example, the Spring Conference in 2017 in Vaasa has the theme of “Risk Management in Global Markets”. The Conference is basically the dream of every NESUit, since the week is spent with wonderful people doing different workshops, listening to guest lectures and visiting interesting companies. There is also plenty of nice evening program and the week ends with the Grand Gala. More information about NESU Conferences can be found from nesuconference.com and you can always ask older NESUits to tell you their stories. You can also send email to nesu(at)enklaavi.fi!
NESU Finland organizes in cooperation with local NESU boards/subcommittees different event, which are NESU Dagen (The kickoff event of all NESU boards at the beginning of the year), summer cottage which is open for everyone, and twice a year the Case Competition. The idea of a Case Competition is to spend a day together working on a case given by some company in groups. The best group will be rewarded, but even participating in the event helps you learn many valuable skills for working life and you network with other people in your industry.
