Committee for Interntaional Affaris aka. CIA-TuKY is an association that makes sure the international vibe stays good in Turku School of Economics. We organize events that am to bring together people from all around the world and encourage students to step out of their comfort zones to experience new things and build networks beyond borders. Besides awesome events we take care of international students in our school. We lobby on behalf of international students and make sure the English courses in TSE are accessible and high quality. We also work closely with international tutors and many other organizations that have similar objectives. Everyone is welcome to join our colorful and inspiring group by attending events, coming to us for help and following us on social media.

Fall 2018 is full of surprises and fun events. In September you can learn all about the traditional sitz parties at Practice Sitz, and at Bunny Blowout you can learn more about us and what CIA is all about. In the beginning of October we welcome you to join us for a fun and unforgettable weekend in the Finnish nature, when we head to Cottage Weekend. Later on we will also celebrate halloween with an awesome party arranged together with KKOY, and we’ll end the year with a chilled Little Christmas get-together. Hopefully you’ll join us on this ciamazing fall!
