First of all a warm welcome to Stockholm Business School (SBS), and to Föreningen Ekonomerna (F.E.ST.)!
We are Föreningen Ekonomerna, the student association at SBS, a non-political and a non-religious organisation with about 1400 members. Föreningen Ekonomerna was founded on a student trip to Prague in 1965 and today we are one of Sweden's biggest student associations for business and have our premises in Kräftriket, Albano called Festningen. As a member you are always welcome to come by and say hi, socialize or study. We have lots of rooms and plenty of coffee.
Our core values are proffessionalism, community and drive, inspired by our members and for our members. They make it possible for us to continue develop and grow. We want to give our members the best student experience as possible, to help them grow as a person and provide them with a strong network of business contacts and friends for life. And of course, to have a lot of fun!
