The IB Union’s mission is to improve student life for students of the BSc in International Business at Copenhagen Business School. The Union strives towards improving both academic and social skills of the IB students with various offers of both academic and social events for all IB’ers.
Recently in the Union…
In January, the first IB Friday Bar was held to ensure that the IB’ers going on the ski trip were prepared, and everyone was, of course, more than welcomed.
Wearing the best after ski wear (no less had been allowed) and showing us how you would convince the French at La Folie Douce that Danes (and international IB’ers!) party the best, were the main goals behind such event that ended up being extremely successful. All kinds of skiwear were accepted, there wasn’t discrimination between Helly Hansen, Salomon, SOS, Kari Traa, Odlo, etc. IB Union just wanted you to feel prepared for the trip of the year, and, at the end of the game, our mission was accomplished!
In December, IB Union hosted an insightful event with one of the largest professional service firms in the entire world, namely PwC.
We were honored that former IB students from such a large organization took their time out of their busy schedules to partner up with IB Union to inspire students,
IB alumni told about their work in M&A and how they got there. We got an inside in how PwC finds new talent and how we should handle future job interviews.
A huge thank you to Christine Nordam Andersen for arranging the event and to the speakers Anders Rona Duer, Cecilie Glamann, and Johannes Zwicky for taking time out of your day to come and talk to us. We very much appreciate your efforts!
It was that time again! The first IB Dinner of the quarter, the year and the decade, and everyone was extremely excited!
Once again we partnered up with The Zoo and secured the best possible deal for everyone.
On top of that everyone had the chance to win some alcohol! This time, every dinner was assigned a theme for their dinner, and they had to send a picture to +45 20895639 of their group before 22. The winners were drawn and they received the alcohol at The Zoo. We are looking forward to seeing you again next time!
We had the pleasure of hosting the IB Alumni event 2020 – ups and downs 👏🏼 The evening was filled with valuable career advice, interesting career stories, laughter and networking. We were happy to hear the experiences of Anders Philip Skovsgaard Valentin, Frederikke B. Kaysen, Kim Rants and Martin Collignon, four IB alumni, while gaining many insights and (hopefully) learning from their advice.
We appreciated the different perspectives, whether those were due to different industry experiences or challenges the speakers had faced. The personal angle of these career stories was truly something unique. Some key points made during the evening were to pursue the things that make us happy, to have a plan b and to trust our instincts.
We would like to say a special thank you to our amazing sponsors who made the evening possible, The LEGO Group, KPMG and Djøf. Through our sponsors we got to hear about the services offered by these companies. 💡
Thank you again to our academic team for working hard in order to make this evening a possibility, Celiane Bjørn Lindestrøm, Anders Dupont and August Solliv! 🤩
