Some of our key events include visits to several distinguished companies within Finland, allowing an opportunity to learn, challenge and connect with their executives. We also get together in a more casual setting for alumni drinks after work, annual Vappu and INSEAD day celebrations, among others.
The Events calendar is constantly updated with new events that we plan over the year, so please watch out for those in the days and months ahead. We look forward to seeing you in many of those events. Few of these events have limited guests only, so please sign up in advance to book your spot.
The new world disorder I Discussion with Alexander Stubb
We would like to kick-off this season of INSEAD Alumni events by a very special occasion. Alexander Stubb, a former Prime Minister, Finance Minister, Foreign Minister, Trade and Europe Minister of Finland (2008-2016), will join us to speak about his vision of Europe’s role in a world that has been losing balance between multilateralism and protectionism, climate change and new technologies, but has ended up swung adrift by Russia’s war in Ukraine.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A. The event will open with coffee and light snacks and a networking opportunity.
Places are limited – to secure your spot, please, sign-up via the link below.
