About Students of Business and Technology
We are a community for all BBA students.
We are a national student union focusing only on promoting the interest of business and technology students and a community for all BBA students. We have more than 14 000 members and 28 member associations around Finland.
We support BBA students in preparing for working life, provide help in work-related issues and coach BBA students in all questions concerning career and work.
We increase knowledge and appreciation of the BBA degree. The appreciation of BBAs in working life is most effected by the BBAs' pride for their own education and skills. Our job is to present the variety of BBAs' possibilities and expertise. A strong BBA identity is built during the studies through activities and events and by making sure that BBA students are aware of all the possibilities the degree offers.
We make sure that BBA students are treated fairly in working life. With the help of salary recommendations and counseling we aim to ensure that BBA students' salaries are on a right level. We help BBA students to get employed by offering career coaching and information on work possibilities.
We actively take part in developing the education of BBAs. We stress the importance of high and aligned quality of the BBA education throughout Finland as well as reasonable educational volumes. By attending to these issues we ensure that BBAs are able to get employed to jobs equivalent to the degree.
What we do?
We provide BBA students with information and counseling concerning, for example, work placement, summer jobs and salary.
We arrange trainings, seminars and the best events. In our events you meet other BBAs and BBA students and grow your network for the future. We have 28 local associations which arrange activities and take care of BBA students' interests on campuses.
We highlight the interest of BBA students' in different forums. We participate in public debate about working life and address issues that are important for BBA students.
We are run by a board. The board is chosen every year at the general assembly where representatives of all our local branches come together. Members of the board are usually former active members of our local associations, but every member of Students of Business and Technology can apply to the board.
The general guidelines for our operations are also decided at the assembly.
We are an independent member of Professionals of Business and Technology. We also belong to Akava’s student council which represents over 110 000 University and University of Applied Sciences students in Finland.
