Dear staff, students and relations of FEB,

On Thursday 3 September 2020 the Faculty of Economics and Business and the student association EBF will jointly celebrate the start of the new FEB academic year 2020-2021. This year this will be digital opening.

In this opening we will reflect on the experiences of the past challenging academic year and look forward on how we jointly can work in a blended way in the new academic year. At the end of the ceremony we would like to raise a glass to the new academic year together. So make sure to have your favorite drink ready close to your screen.

You are all very welcome to join this festive online event that will be streamed via YouTube Live. The Ceremony itself will take place from 16.00 – 16.30.
