    The Social Learning Lounge is a concept for all Hanken students that want to stay connected, inspired and why not: even make new friends. Through the event we want to offer exciting encounters in a time of division and isolation.

    During the second Social Learning Lounge  -session on Monday 12.4.2021, we hope to learn from your international experiences as well as provide the opportunity for you to learn more about places that interest you!

    At the first Social learning lounge 22.3.2021 we discussed for example our favorite local holidays worldwide and cultural shocks we have encountered. We got feedback that the discussions were interesting and “surprisingly deep“.

    Sign up to the event via the form attached. We ask you to sign-up rather sooner than later, however latest on Sunday 11.4.2021. We will send the Teams-link to the event (to everyone who have signed up) on Monday morning 12.4.2021

    In the sign-up form, you can choose:

    • a place you are interested in but don’t know so well yet
    • a place you have already lived in/visited and you would like others to learn about
    • or any other place that comes to your mind while filling the form :)

    We will ask you to choose 3 different places, so that we can make sure to match you with people who share your interest. Please note that no preparation is needed – it is a casual discussion we are talking about.

    You can enjoy some fresh air while doing walk-and-talk online or join the discussion from the comfort of your home.

    The event is organized by the Hanken International Talent™ team and SHS Masters´Committee.

    Spring often implies the traditional spring cleaning. If you have old clothes or things you do not use, you can donate them to Hope Ry. Hope Ry passes on the donations to low-income families with children, families with children in sudden crises and children in foster homes in Finland.

    The donations should be whole and clean so that the child can feel equal among his/ her friends. You can drop off the clothes you want to donate at Kåren, where we have a collection bin in the entrance.SHS will pass on these donations so that Hope Ry can deliver directly to the donation destination to avoid unnecessary transport. 👕

  • Havis Amanda 2021
    17:00 -19:00
    30 April, 2021

    After a ruff spring, the sun has finally started to show and its time for all students to put on the overalls, open the bottle of sparkling wine and give Havis Amanda her student cap. Normally we would soon be gathering around Kauppatori and celebrate Vappu together, we will celebrate together, but this year it will happen virtually. Because we cannot let Havis Amanda go without her cap. 🎉

    The crowning of Havis Amanda, Helsinki’s own mermaid at Kauppatori, is an old student tradition. Before it became official, the crowning took place at midnight as early as the year 1909. In 1951, the first official permission to place a student cap on Havis Amanda was given, and now it’s a tradition for the whole family every Vappu at 6 PM.

    The student unions in metropolitan Helsinki take turns in the crowning of Havis Amanda and this year SHS, the Student Union of Hanken School of Economics, has the honor to continue
    the tradition. SHS now welcomes everyone to take part in the festivities and join the biggest annual student festivity Helsinki has to offer!

    On April 30th the virtual crowning with the traditional spring cleaning of Havis Amanda takes place. After that the cappers are lifted up and Havis Amanda is crowned at 6 PM sharp, which means that all students are allowed to place their own student caps on their heads. 🍾

    Gather around your computers and come and take part of the festivities and celebrate Vappu in the best possible way! ✨

    More info about all the events and time table will follow!

    SHS encourage everyone to celebrate Vappu in a safe and responsible way! Remember to follow the restrictions and guidelines issued by authorities.
