Business Contact

HHUS business committee acts to connect students with companies where they exchange ideas and information. This is some of the projects we work on together with our partners:

Breakfast, lunch or dinner

The company presents itself and what they work with, in a setting of breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is usually held at E-pub or at a venue chosen by the company.

Representation at Umeå University

Companies place themselves at the university (mostly Lindellhallen) for a day to interact with students passing through the halls.  They might do smaller competitions or hand out giveaways, so that we can interact with each other.

Activity at Insparken

Insparken is the first thing that happens before the semester starts. Some companies then get a chance to meet students that have been admitted to the university. The activities held by the companies are usually formed out to be active and fun, where we get a chance to interact with the companies that HHUS work together with.

Case competition

Companies sometimes organize case competitions for students. This gives us a chance to meet the companies and to practice theoretical skills in practice.

Presence at exams

Companies can meet students before an exam and prepare them for what is about to happen. HHUS does the planning, then the company reaches out to the students they would like to meet.

Social activities

These activities can be held at the offices of the company, at university, E-pub or other suitable location. The company can then under relaxed circumstances meet students in combination with an activity that the company arranges.

Unbreakable

Unbreakable is a race where you run a distance of 4-5 km with different obstacles along the way that you have to get past. It’s a new project that HHUS started two years ago. We have arranged so that the students can get in contact with different companies in the starting/finish area, to mingle and get valuable advice. The companies sponsoring the event also get one obstacle in the race.

Businessweek

HHUS Businessweek is an annual event hosted by the Business committee. 20 selected students get the opportunity to go on a trip for a few days, where they can visit different types of companies that could be a relevant employer in the future.
