Today NESU is present within student organizations of 16 business schools in three Nordic countries: Finland, Iceland and Estonia. On the Nordic level the main purpose of NESU is to bring its members together at semi-annual conferences, which take place every Spring and Autumn.
President is the head of the whole NESU organization and its job is to create contacts in new NESU countries and also make sure that NESU stays alive and is powerful in the countries that are already active. The presidential term is one year and presidential elections are held during the Autumn conference.
Even though the president is responsible of the internationalization, it is our common goal to develop NESU in existing and new countries.
If you have any questions or new ideas related to Nordic Affairs and NESU, please contact the current NESU President.
A word from the President
My name is Auður Elísabet Guðrúnardóttir and at the Union meeting in Tampere I was chosen as the new president of NESU. In this blog post I will introduce myself and my plans for the coming year.
I'm 26 years old from Reykjavík the capital of Iceland. I finished my BS.c degree in finance from the University of Iceland in 2019 and currently i'm studying my masters in International banking and finance at the Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics. I've been a part of Nesu from the beginning of my studies when I attended my first conference in Oulu 2016. Since then I've attended every conference as well as being the Head organizer of the autumn 2018 conference in Iceland. Before becoming the President of NESU I had been the Country Representative of NESU Iceland for two years. Thanks to NESU my time as a student has been more meaningful, fun and I've made friends for the rest of my life.
The main responsibilities of the president are advancing the internationalization and both maintaining and improving the state of the union. My predecessor Juuli did amazing work over the past year and it is easy for me to continue that. With her present in Sweden I'm hopeful that this year we will be able to reconnect with students there and plan an excursion. During the year I will be attending NESU event's, have regular meetings with the Country Representatives and visit Sweden to attend a ICCA seminar.
I also want to continue making the president’s position more transparent and relatable to all NESUits. Since you, the members of NESU, have trusted me with this position you can always contact me directly for example via email, facebook or Instagram if you have any questions. You can also find me in the conferences or sits parties around the NESU cities.
Hope to see most of you during the year!
Auður Elísabet Guðrúnardóttir
President of NESU 19-20
