Nordic Business Forum inspired Metropolia’s students and staff

07.10.2016

For the third time in a row Metropolia’s students and staff had an excellent possibility to participate in the Nordic Business Forum via live stream at Myyrmäki Campus. The Nordic Business Forum 2016 was held on 6th-7th October in Helsinki. The live stream for Metropolia was offered by Metropolia Business School. More than 200 students and staff members took the opportunity to watch and listen NBF’s noteworthy speakers, charismatic experts in their field.

Nordic Business Forum has grown to be one of the most significant business seminars in Europe. It has been organized since 2010 by the Nordic Business Group. In 2015 NBF gathered over 5,500 business executives from over 25 nationalities for two days of business festivities in Helsinki. This year the themes of the forum were digitalization, culture and marketing; all from the point of view of advantage.

On Thursday 6 October, simultaneously with the live streaming, Metropolia Business School organized an Inspire Me -event for the students and the alumni. Several companies were present giving the students an opportunity to network, ask questions, and improve their professional profiles. Companies, which attended the event included Promotion Point Oy, Management Events, Osaamistehdas, KILROY, Messukeskus, Trainers' House, Personalhuset Staffing Group, Nordea and Adecco.

"All in all, both events went well. Plenty of people joined the events, thanks to our team of international students, who were responsible for the marketing communications. Inspire Me -exhibitors were happy with the event. The CV clinic held by Adecco was popular and many of the students had their new CV-photo taken by a photographer, also a dedicated student of ours. The NBF has become a tradition - this was the third time we had the live stream to Myyrmäki campus and I strongly believe that the tradition will continue next year" says Senior Lecturer Christina Kaarni from Metropolia.

Next year's topics at the Nordic Business Forum are responsibility, purpose and leadership.
