IW Helsinki

1. August 2015International Week

Welcome to the IW Helsinki!

The Association of Economics Students in Helsinki (KY) warmly welcomes you to spend an unforgettable action-filled week in Helsinki! Our goal is to familiarize you with Helsinki, Finland and Finnish business culture while having the time of our life and making lifelong friends and memories together! Naturally we have come up with an exciting collection of must-do activities for your visit in our gorgeous capital city! During your stay, you will have the amazing opportunity to familiarize yourself with the Finnish student life; by the end of your stay, you will definitely know (and remember!) what “sitsi” party means and have pub-crawled the heck out of your new international friends and Helsinki! The program of the week also lets you experience the Finnish culture in a more traditional way when we head out of the city and into the wild to enjoy the Finnish cabin life – obviously with the famous Finnish sauna! Naturally you will also have enough time to do Helsinki sightseeing and souvenir shopping during your stay – the organizing team has collected their Helsinki must-do’s and will be happy to share those to help you make the most out of your trip! See you this Fall in Helsinki!
