Committees

KY has five committees organizing the most magnificent events in town, looking after student advocacy, and taking care of back-office work, such as event advertising and fixing the cooperation agreements with corporate partners. By joining a committee, you will always learn something you’d never learn only by attending lectures. Would you like to become a master in event organizing or get some hands-on selling experience? These five committees make learning new skills possible!

Academic Committee KOVA

The Academic Committee KOVA supervises students’ interests, takes part in academic discussion and organizes study related projects. Many of them are arranged in cooperation with Aalto BIZ and are vital to enable smooth daily life at the school for students.

Twice a year the committee organizes a Think Up! -survey in order to collect feedback on study related matters at Aalto BIZ and does lobbying towards the school management. By coordinating Kympaigning program, where KY members go to their former high schools to tell about their studies, KOVA takes care of marketing Aalto BIZ and KY towards high school students. The committee also names the Teacher of the Year.

Sports and Wellbeing Committee LiHy

The Sports and Wellbeing Committee LiHy organizes a wide range of events supporting students’ physical and mental wellbeing. The committee arranges approximately eight events during the year: an urban adventure race KY City Challenge, a student rowing competition Autumn Classic and a food carnival, for instance. The committee’s goal is to provide unforgettable memories and supply some balance to student life – and of course to have fun!

LiHy members can be recognized by sporty Adidas jackets, team beanies and rock-hard team spirit. A year in the committee not only guarantees every member lots of new friends, but also provides a unique opportunity to organize events, train leadership and teamwork skills and learn something new about event marketing.

Sales Academy

KY’s very own Sales Academy brings companies closer to students. This dynamic and energetic committee is in charge of negotiating member benefits, which are one of the most important services KY provides to its members.

Sales Academy also promotes sales and entrepreneurship at KY with a handful of events organized in cooperation with sponsoring companies throughout the year. All current and previous committee members can be recognized by pinstriped sleeves on their overalls!

Cultural Committee KUVA

KY organizes various cultural events and parties for its members throughout the year. Many of these events are brought to students by the Cultural Committee KUVA, which is in charge of planning and arranging these events to suit the varying tastes of KY members. Whether you are interested in pub crawls, high culture or Wappu celebrations, the Cultural Committee produces an event for your liking!

Being a part of this team will profit you with more than just partying and having fun. The members of the Cultural Committee learn several aspects about project management and teamwork while enjoying the KY culture in great company!

KY Masters’ Club

KY Masters’ Club caters to the needs of our Master’s level students, offering networking opportunities, sophisticated soirées and excursions customized for MsC students – and of course the chance to balance your studies by partaking in creating new event concepts for your fellow students. Events are often organized in collaboration with student associations such as Hanken’s SHS Masters’ Committee, so you are bound to extend your networks beyond Aalto BIZ.

Masters’ Club arranges some traditional events like Masters’ Night and Christmas Party, but a lot is up to you! It also gathers new master’s mursus and former Aalto BIZ bachelor students to the same place so it will be sure you meet a lot of new people during your year at a committee!
