Thank you for returning to your Alma Mater

Homecoming Day is the biggest alumni event of the School of Business. The event offers knowledge and inspiring perspectives on current topics in the field of business as well as a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends. The first ever Homecoming Day was organized in 2014.

Homecoming Day 2016 was held on 26th of August. The theme was Business and Society in 2020, and it was discussed from different perspectives with the School’s alumni, academic community and influential opinion leaders in the Finnish economy.

After the day seminar, alumni had the opportunity to continue enjoying the event at Hotel Hilton Kalastajatorppa with a three-course dinner and exclusive program, such as the speech by the alumnus/a of the year. KY’s (The Association of Economics Students in Helsinki) own big band Boston Promenade accompanied the celebration after the meal.

In 2016, the day seminar was held mainly in English and the dinner was held mainly in Finnish.
