The Exchange Committee is the student union’s international wing that contributes to making Hanken an international university by integrating the exchange students to the student union at Hanken. EC consists of 20 tutors and a president, who work together to make sure that the exchange students have the time of their life while at Hanken!
The Exchange Committee organises events, such as pub crawls, sitz parties, company visits and sports events, most of which are open for all Hanken students. Also, each semester EC travels together with the exchange students to Tallinn, Stockholm, St. Petersburg and Lapland. Additionally, EC provides the Buddy-Program, which connects hanken students and exchange students with each other.
On top of organising events and trips, EC also participates in various events, and makes sure the exchange students know what is happening in other parts of the student union. Naturally, the EC tutors are there for any questions or challenges the exchange students might have during their 4-9 month stay, too.
As there are new exchange students arriving each Autumn and Spring semester, EC recruits new tutors every semester. Among the best things about being a tutor are your new friends for life from all over the world!
If you have any questions about the committee or its events do not hesitate to contact the president of Exchange Committee Linn Björkholm, or pull your nearest EC tutor in the sleeve and ask. All the tutors can also be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
