The committees are an integral part of the proceedings of Finanssi. The committees organize and develop activities, such as events, together with the Board of Directions. This page introduces the members of each committee in 2023 and a short description of each committee’s responsibilities.

We choose new committee members every year in November after new Board Members have been voted and selected. If you are interested in participating in Finanssi’s operations you can always send an email to

Academic Affairs Committee

The Academic Affairs Committee represents the students’ understanding of the current state of the studies and study environments in the Oulu Business School.

In practice, the committee assists the Head of Academic Affairs with statements, as well as organizing and analyzing the annual OBS feedback questionnaire each Spring. The Academic Affairs Committee is often called the kopo committee, short for koulutuspoliittinen (‘educational politics’ in Finnish).
