Listen up! Now it’s time to sign up for SM i Ekonomi (Swedish University Nationals in Economics). Umeå University will host its competition on March 6th. Your team will consist of three members where the winning team gets to represent UMU and HHUS in the final in Göteborg on May 16-19.
The first competition, in Umeå, will consist of an exam to test your knowledge in various fields related to business administration and economics.

SM i Ekonomi was started in 1987 by Sveriges Ekonomföreningars Riksorganisation where Växjö Högskola was arranging the event and also won the competition. Umeå won the competition in 1988 and 2009, so that makes it a decade ago to this date!
