Corporate Challenge

COMMITTE MISSION

To bring the students closer to the corporate world during relaxed conditions.

Corporate Challenge is an active career fair that is being arranged by LundaEkonomerna in early fall . The idea behind the event is that students are being matched with their dream-companies to meet and get to know each other under more relaxed conditions. During one day the students and the company representatives form teams for fun competing and exciting activities around in Lund.

Through a series of challenges and competitions the students gets to know their companies and vice-verca creating a strong bond for the future. With activities ranging from Segway races, to Sorbing or quizzing  the day is usually filled with laughter and is a great way to broaden the network not only between companies and students but also between the members of every group

The day ends with a banquet and a fabulous party where the winner receives the prestigious first price and the all the partipants get the chance to have a great night with a lot of new found friends.

A word from our Project Leader

Friederike Hillenbrand is the Project Leader of Corporate Challenge 2018 and together with the committee she strives to create a day where professionals and students can meet to bond, network and have a lot of fun!

See available positions

Who is Friederike Hillenbrand?

I am a passionate LundaEkonom, studying my second semester in International Business. Coming from Germany, everything from Fika to the amazing Lunda-Life was very new to me. I quickly found out, that I wanted to be active in the Union as soon as possible and thus applied shortly after the novice week to become the Project Leader of Corporate Challenge 2018. Getting involved in LundaEkonomerna has already been more than a great experience for me and I can’t wait to create even better memories and the greatest event of the year together with the CC18 committee!

How do you see Corporate Challenge?

Corporate Challenge is such a unique event. As my Vice Project Leader would say: “Think of it as a combination of a small version of eee and the play-day during the novice week. With this day, we don’t only give companies and students the opportunity to mingle with each other but actively try to shorten the distance between them, to give both parties the chance, to go a step further in getting to know each other.

Why should you apply?

Becoming part of the CC18 family will give you a great chance to not only have an impact on influencing the Corporate Challenge of 2018 but also to learn and grow yourself. Besides, we have some fun things planned for the committee and you sure don’t want to miss out on that!
