Golden Haba Gala is our school’s thanksgiving event, organized by our dear lost professor Madis Habakuk, founder and economist of Estonian Business School. The aim of the event is to recognize those who have been most outstanding in EBS during the year.
Actually, this is also one of the biggest events of the year, bringing together the whole EBS family to spend a nice evening together. Girls can put on beautiful dresses and young men are in gorgeous suits. It’s not just about lots of recognition, it’s an evening to spend time with your friends, dance all night, taste wonderful food, and believe me, the smile won’t disappear from your mouth for a while. Golden Haba Gala is full of laughter, brilliance, tears and wonderful people. I’m proud to be part of the EBS family. The people are simply so amazing, ambitious and unified. Together, we will achieve great things and show how awesome we can be!
Last year, one of our brilliant hosts, Maksim Baitsov reminds that for him the auction was the highlight of the Golden Haba Gala’s! This year he expects the event to be even more powerful and cool. For those who are coming for the first time to Haba Gala, he recommends to enjoy this evening as much as possible, because it is a truly worthwhile event! Every true ebster has to come to Haba to get the perfect experience and understand exactly what EBS means!
“Haba Gala is the biggest and most important event in my academic year.
When I first went to Haba Gala last year, I couldn’t imagine what a cool and memorable event it would be. EBS Haba Gala includes both glamour, networking and auction. The evening is supported by delicious meals and a polite selection of drinks, so the quality time with successful and beautiful people will fly. In addition, everyone has a good chance to follow the best of the best award ceremony. The fact is this isn’t just an event for students, I recommend all the ebsters to go to Haba Gala to make new friends and spend one wonderful evening. This is our tradition, our value, and our strength to be together, and being one family. ”- Randy Padar, our second year ebster, active and ambitious young man.
Sirel Lember, who has already participated at three Golden Haba Galas and she is also part of the organizing team for second time, says: “Golden Haba Gala vibe is quite different and will be remembered for a long time. That’s why it’s hard to bring out the most memorable moments from Haba Gala itself, because it is a positive event from every aspect. Having fun with your friends (or EBS family), fancy dresses and suits, delicious food and enjoyable entertainment – have always been one of the most amazing evenings of a school year! One real ebster should come to Haba, because this is an event you will remember for years. ”
“One of the most memorable moments of last year’s Golden Haba was definitely the emotions and sincerity when Viljo Kallas received the lifetime prize. How all the attendance stood up for one man, it was truly affectionate and sweet.
My definite favorite part of this event is meeting with old friends and schoolmates. Recalling common times and creating new memories.
The EBS Golden Hub is an event that crowns the whole academic year. Being together in a free atmosphere and delighting us with the best of ours – this is something that will definitely be remembered after your studies.
The right ebster has to come to Haba to make new friends, support your small but loving family and lot of laughter. ”- Liisa Maide, an alumni of EBS, has participated and organized three Golden Haba Galas.
Second year ebster Tea Teesalu tells us that the Haba gala has always been the most fun event to meet with your friends and coursemates. It is also always very interesting to see who will get the Haba figures. The whole day is very special, from preparation to the end of the party – everything is exciting and fierce.
She can’t wait to spend time with her friends at the event.
For a new ebster, she recommends a peaceful mind, be punctual and a follow the dress code to avoid later embarrassment, but don’t forget to be happy and feel good.
Haba gala is the most looked after event of the year, where the whole school family comes together, there are no separation between teachers and students on that day, only a big family comes together.
