NESU, short for Nordiska Ekonomie Studerandes Union (Swedish for “Nordic Economy Students Union”), is an organization which brings together business school students from the Nordic countries and Estonia for both fun and networking. This non-profit, politically un-aligned organization was founded in the 1950s. There are members of NESU in all business school cities in Finland: Helsinki, Turku, Tampere, Pori, Vaasa, Jyväskylä, Mikkeli, Kuopio, Joensuu, Lappeenranta, and of course Oulu. In addition, the international NESU events have participants from Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, and the latest member country Estonia.
NESU in Oulu
NESU Organizes many events in Oulu, but are most known of Sitsi-parties. Sitsit are an academic table party with singing and getting to know new people. Definitely a Finnish must experience!
In Finland, the highest organ in NESU is the NESU Board of Directors, elected at the national assembly during the NESU Summer Cabin event. The term for the board lasts from one Summer Cabin event to the next one, and any member may run for a position in the board. NESU-Finland aims to avoid overlap of the NESU events in different cities and to help all NESU cities to work together for the common goals.
