A couple weeks ago, we at HEBS published possibly the most important news of all times as we became a part of NESU – Nordic Economic Student Union as our own organisation. For the Estonians probably the most familiar NESU organisation is NESU Tallinn, to which HEBS belonged as well. However, starting from this autumn, NESU-HEBS operates as its own suborganisation under them.
Some of the readers probably wonder what NESU is and why it is so important. NESU was founded in the 50s in order to enhance the connection between Nordic business schools. On the Nordic level, NESU organises semi-annual conferences which gather Nesuits from all over the Nordic countries. NESU Finland and the city organisations in Finnish business schools organise various kinds of events from excursions to, of course, the sitzparties. As NESU-HEBS we get to present ourselves and our own student union in NESU events and also make EBS Helsinki better known among other Finnish universities. Active participating in NESU events enables Hebsters to widen their networks all over Finland and meet business students from other cities. In fact, we already met lots of Nesuits last spring when visiting sitzparties with NESU Tallinn and some of the closest ones were invited to our Annual Ball. What a start for this amazing cooperation!
NESU-HEBS functions as a committee under HEBS ry Executive Board and works closely with HEBS’s Cultural Committee which is in charge of HEBS’s events. Anu Tasanto, Timo Kortelainen and Suvi Vanha-Honko form the NESU-HEBS board for the autumn 2018 are looking for active Hebsters to join them for the sitzparties during this upcoming autumn! NESU has warmly welcomed us to the family and the other organisations are looking forward to meeting us as soon as possible. NESU-HEBS hosts its very first NESU-sitz on November 10th so make sure to be there – that night you do not want to miss!
