In Finland, NESU has expanded itself to every city that has a university with business-related studies. At the moment, these cities are Helsinki, Espoo, Turku, Tampere, Pori, Joensuu, Jyväskylä, Oulu, Mikkeli, Lappeenranta, Kuopio, and Vaasa. Each city has a NESU board or a NESU commission. NESU Finland is the umbrella organization of NESU cities in Finland.

The most visible functions around Finland are the almost weekly held sitz-parties, or academic dinner parties. Despite the name and strictly followed traditions associated with the sitz-party culture, the events are quite laid-back and rather eventful towards the end. Other NESU events organized in Finland are NESU-Dagen organized in January, Wappurundi with traveling through different cities in April and the Summer Cottage party organized in August.

If you want to participate in NESU activities, contact your local NESU organization or one of  the NESU Finland board members!

NESU Finland


The main mission of NESU Finland is to coordinate the co-operation between Finnish NESU cities. As the NESU activity in Finland is at the moment the biggest among the Nordic countries, NESU Finland also tries to spread NESU to other Nordic countries. This is done by working together with the NESU President to organize excursions to other Nordic countries in the future.

NESU Finland is led by a country representative with the support of a 5 person board elected of members of different NESU cities. Along with the board, NESU Finland has its own commission composed of the chairs of NESU boards and commissions of all the NESU cities in Finland.
