KKOY’s goal is to bring the international business world closer to our students. In this day and age, being aware of other cultures, languages and countries can even be considered as a prerequisite in order to be able to succeed in the economic world in the future. We attempt to achieve this ambitious target by organizing several events, excursions, theme nights as well as a recruiting fair every year.

We also believe that being active in improving the teaching quality and course offering in the field of International Business is crucial in order to be able to grow as an international organization. Therefore it is our mission to work as an efficient channel between the students, especially those majoring in International Business, and the faculty.

In addition to all of the great learning possibilities, we do, of course, offer several entertaining nights where the most important thing is to have a good time with fellow students.

Although Turku is great, we at KKOY feel like the entire world is open for us to explore.

Anyone interested in International Business or even those who simply want to have a good time, come and join us in our events!


One of the most significant event of KKOY’s year is definitely the foreign excursion. We have been in Hong Kong and Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo, Abu Dhabi and Doha, and last time we were in Buenos Aires and Montevideo and its neighboring areas. The excursion’s main objective is to get acquainted with the corporate culture and international business of each country. For instance, we visit corporations, embassies and universities. Not to forget about local culture, lifestyle and sights! So far, it is still a secret where we will go in 2018!

However, the international excursion is not the only trip we arrange. KKOY also runs a few domestic excursions every year: for example, we have visited KONE and IBM, and have operated in Slush voluntarily – what’s next? Stay tuned!


The biggest project and responsibility for our organization is the annually held academic recruiting fair called ContactExpo. It is a chance for students to listen to great speakers, meet future employers as well as -fingers crossed- get a job. The best part of ContactExpo is that it’s held at Turku School of Economics
