UKEN is by far the largest sub-committee at NHH and ultimately consists of around 1,000 members, fUKENtionaries, from both NHH and other study centers in Bergen. This helps make UKEN Norway’s second largest student festival. Over the course of 17 days, over 30,000 visitors will stop by NHH to experience what UKEN has to offer. The program has previously consisted of everything from world record attempts and days for children and the elderly, to concerts and revues. The UKErevue has several times won prizes during the national championship in student revue. The UKErevue is rich in tradition with a professional production in the city of Bergen. It is the Board of UKEN that gets to choose exactly what the program for UKEN 24 will be filled with, which records will be broken, what the theme of the UKErevy 24 will be and who will be on the many stages for UKEN. If you join UKEN’s family, I can promise you many new acquaintances and lifelong memories. Proof of this is all the former members of UKEN, fUKENtionaries, who return to every single UKEN; precisely to experience the unique feeling UKEN has given, and still gives them.
Making UKEN 24 is going to be the most fun you’ve ever done in your entire life!
UKEgreetings from the Board of UKEN 22
Head of UKEN
As Head of UKEN you have two tasks:

Whether through social media, campaigns, ticket releases, stunts or other crazy inventions, everyone must understand that UKEN 24 will be the highlight of the year!
As Head of PR, you will be responsible for all of UKEN’s external communications. Therefore, you have to be both structured and a bit creative. If you like to please others, and feel a tingling in your stomach when you hear the word “sold out”, there is only one thing to do:

Head of Sales
Imagine being the manager of Bergen’s largest pub! That’s because you are the Head of Sales at UKEN.
Not only that, you are also the leader of UKEN’s largest section, which in UKEN 22 numbered well over 400 fUKENtionaries. You manage all of UKEN’s bar operations, food sales, logistics, as well as security and security. In addition, you work with supplier agreements for food and beverages, for example what kind of wine should UKEvinen 24 be?
Your section provides the party in the auditorium and in the basement during UKEN, and what a party it is! During UKEN 22, over 40,000 pints were consumed, cheers!
