Homecoming Day

The biggest alumni event of the School of Business - Homecoming Day - is organized usually every second year. In 2020, the Homecoming Day event was decided to be cancelled due to the uncertain continuing COVID-19 situation. The next Homecoming Day will be organized in 2022. At Homecoming Day events the School of Business has announced its Alumnus or Alumna of the Year. 

Welcome back to Kauppis!

Better Business - Better Society Seminar Series

Better Business — Better Society seminar series offers opportunities to learn about current societally important topics at the School of Business. We invite our collaborators, supporters and alumni to the seminar at the School, and everyone else interested in the topic to follow the live broadcast on Facebook. The seminars are arranged monthly, generally on the first Thursday of the month, excluding holiday seasons. The seminars are held either in Finnish or English. Currently the seminars are organized as remote seminars. The seminar speakers are professors from our School, but often there are also our School's alumni as guest speakers, for example.

Masters' Celebration

Masters' Celebration (previously known as Masters' Gala) for the freshly graduated Master's graduates is organized usually every year in the beginning of summer. In 2020, the Masters' Celebration cannot be organized due to the COVID-19 situation, as the event would require physical presence. The nature of the event does not unfortunately fit to virtual mode. The next Master's Celebration will hopefully be organized in late spring 2021. All the Master's graduates who have graduated after the previous event will be invited to the upcoming event.
