Mälardalen Student Union is looking for collaborations with actors who in a sustainable and ethical way want to contribute to living campuses for our members in both Eskilstuna and Västerås It is thanks to the members that the student union exists, and the idea is that benefits and offers will attract both old and new members to support the business.
We who work at Mälardalens Student Union are committed and passionate about what we do. The interests of the students are always the main focus for us, and we are constantly working to develop student life in our campuses. Since the Student Union promotes increased student benefit, it is important that all the benefits we offer are useful and valuable from a student perspective. Thus, the benefits should appeal to as large a proportion as possible of the students at Mälardalens University.
If you are interested in collaborating with Mälardalens Student Union or reaching out to our members by being seen with sponsorship or other student-useful information, contact the work relations manager.
One of the values expressed in the Mälardalens Student Union’s values is opportunity. This means that we work with several different contact-creating activities such as the annual labor market fair Högvarv. Through Högvarv and other corporate events that we arrange, a place is created where students as employees can make invaluable contacts for the future. In other words, we are the students’ contact point between education and the labor market.
Mälardalens Student Union wants to be able to give the students at Mälardalens University as many opportunities as possible to make contacts for the future. For you as a company, this means that it is possible to book different forms of events and activities through us.
On campuses in Eskilstuna and Västerås we have our Kårtorg that companies can rent. During your visit, you can rent tables, chairs and also order coffee or coffee from our café to your stand.
If you would like to give a presentation, lecture or other type of event in the morning, breakfast events are offered. The idea there is that the students each receive a breakfast sandwich and freshly brewed coffee in connection with the event.
The most in-demand type of event we offer is lunch lectures. It has long been known that students love free stuff. In connection with a lecture or company presentation, we therefore offer tasty and filling lunch baguettes from our own café. The event is held over lunch and therefore rarely clashes with other lectures or seminars.
Evening events at the student union house
In Mälardalens Student Union’s student union building there are several different possibilities. For example, if you would like to organize a case evening with a taco buffet, a presentation or a larger event with stage facilities, we have unique venues suitable for both smaller and larger events.
In consultation with Mälardalens University, we who work at Mälardalens Student Union make sure to arrange several fairs. This gives students a unique opportunity to mingle with several different companies, trade unions and other traders.
Our annual labor market fair Högvarv is one of our oldest projects and has been in one form or another since the 1990s. The fair is held in Västerås and usually takes place at the end of February. Between fifty and sixty companies from different industries participate in the fair. Read more about the fair here!
In addition to the labor market fair Högvarv, we also have smaller fairs. Our introduction fairs are held in both Eskilstuna and Västerås at the start of the semester. They are there to inform and welcome the new students to campus. At the fair there are a limited number of spots available and we would like your company to primarily benefit students who are at the beginning of their studies. Those who usually attend these fairs are program associations, student associations and the university’s departments such as Student Health. Trade unions and discounters also tend to participate to reach out to the new students at the university.
Mälardalens Student Union works in close cooperation with the local business community to create opportunities for our members. We work with companies, interest groups and the public sector to build a network between students and the labor market. In addition to laying the foundation for our members’ future careers, we get them great offers and discounts.
Network for the future
If you are at the beginning of your education and are looking for qualifications to add to your CV or are soon finished with your education and want to find the dream job, Högvarv is for you. During Högvarv you get the opportunity to meet between fifty-sixty exhibitors from different industries. They all have one thing in common – they want to meet students. In other words, it is a great opportunity for you as a student to make invaluable contacts and mingle with potential future employers.
