Educational Affairs

Every year, the Finanssi Board of Directors nominates the Head of Academic Affairs, who, together with the Chair of the Board, is in charge of the advancing of interests and advocacy in Finanssi. In addition, many administrative organs and committees have student members from the Oulu Business School. The student advocacy work of Finanssi has historically been well respected, and especially on the faculty level, the opinions of Finanssi are warmly welcomed.

In addition, the Finnish Business School Graduates (Suomen Ekonomit) has a strong presence in educational affairs. The educational advocacy conducted by the Finnish Business School Graduates aims to maintain the prestige of the degrees in economics and the know-how of the graduates. That prestige springs from the students’ and graduates’ professionalism and the ability to adapt their skills in the evolving world.

If you have any queries about your studies, courses or faculty, you can contact Kopo, who will be happy to answer your questions and represent your interests.
