Student Games – Bergen Challenge
As Leader, you will have the main responsibility for the project’s internal and external processes. Internally, as the head of the board, you must ensure that the project achieves its goals and ensure that all tasks are followed up. You must also ensure that all volunteers feel welcome and that they get something positive out of the experience. Externally, you will work towards external parties, for example the Norwegian Student Sports Association, in addition to being the organisation’s external face towards the media and other parties. Furthermore, you will have overall responsibility for preparing, as well as achieving, short-term and long-term strategies, in addition to the project’s final result.
As qualities, it is important to be able to see everyone in the organisation, work well with those around you and generally be there for everyone. This is not a position for you who are only looking for something to put on your CV, as a great deal of motivation and interest in the work to be done is required. Nevertheless, it is an experience of a lifetime, and you will gain an incredible number of positive experiences that will undoubtedly be taken with you further!
Head of Finance
Student sports festivals provide sporting joy, friendship and unforgettable memories. However, one is dependent on having a robust economy at the bottom to achieve all this. Head of Finance must ensure this through effective financial management. The position therefore entails a large and valuable responsibility, and provides a golden opportunity to test theory from the school bench in practice already during the study period through budget planning and accounting. Furthermore, as finance manager, you get to test your leadership skills as well as the ability to make decisions under uncertainty.
It is important to be a skilled team player in order to succeed as a finance manager. You must dare to make unpopular decisions given that this is the best for the project. Good communication, constructive feedback and a focus on work balance are therefore important. Would you like an exciting position where you get to help design a fantastic event for students? Then you must apply for Head of Finance!

The Student Games Bergen Challenge is about the joy of sport. It is the sports section that is responsible for creating. The head of sports is therefore responsible for the selection, planning and execution of all sports. At the same time, you are responsible for booking halls and courts. It sounds simple on paper, but when it comes to around 25 sports that take place simultaneously and spread throughout Bergen, there are (literally) a lot of balls in the air.

Klubb- og kulturutvalget
Would you like to help run and develop stud.NHH’s second home? The Club and Culture Committee (KKU) is one of the largest sub-committees in NHHS. Our main responsibility is to run Klubben, Campus, and Aulabar, and to ensure that sub-committees and interest groups are supplied with whatever drinks they want. KKU’s duties also involve arranging parties and other social welfare services for the students. In other words: If something of a festive nature happens at NHH, KKU is usually involved in one way or another! Overall, the operating locations have a relatively high annual turnover, despite a price level that is not precisely discouragingly high. In terms of area, we can also boast that we run one of Bergen’s largest nightclubs. The club is open on weekdays and is the school’s party venue when parties, auditorium shows, and other events organized by NHHS are organized. We have an offer for all the school’s students and want to be the first choice when stud.NHH needs a break from the reading room and academic work. The club and culture committee has undergone major changes in recent years. A consistent goal for the subcommittee is to ensure that Klubben, Campus and Aulabar are run in the best possible way, and to create the greatest possible student welfare at the school. The members of the board must therefore continuously look for improvements and take the initiative to implement measures. KKU’s around 40 members are organized into six groups and are helped by all the first-year students at the school, who contribute during their first year at the school. The board carries out appointments and lays down the overall practical and financial plan for the operation each semester. A year on the board of the student union’s most festive sub-committee will undoubtedly give you many challenges and experiences, in addition to many new friends, fantastic nachspiel, an unforgettable cabin trip and a unique insight into how to organize the legendary NHH parties!
The head of KKU has an overall responsibility for coordinating the work carried out in the subcommittee, from day-to-day operations to longer-term planning. You will act as a deputy for the holder of the liquor license in NHHS and it will be your responsibility to ensure that the operation of Klubben, Campus and Aulabar takes place in line with the regulations. As a manager, you will encounter many exciting challenges. There is a lot going on in “Norway’s best and most active student association” and you will have a lot of contact with your fellow students, other sub-committees and interest groups. Far more is organized in Kjelleren than you might think, and you will find that NHHS’s calendar of activities includes far more than just big parties. You will thus also experience that the tasks can range from being quite small to much larger. You will learn to deal with situations head-on and find solutions to most things. As head of the Club and Culture Committee, you will thus experience that the concept of a “quiet evening” will not necessarily be the same as before and that Klubben will quickly become your second home! Still, it is ultimately the responsibility of leading the great KKU gang through the big parties that are best remembered by any subcommittee leader. A lot happens, from planning events several weeks in advance to the sweeping up of broken plastic glasses at 03.00 at night. Nights like this, and the leadership position in general, generate a lot of tired muscles, worn out shoes and a particularly strained relationship with words like “diff”, “break” and “deviation”, but most of all a whole bunch of fantastically good memories you would never be without.
Head of Financial Affairs
As the Head of Financial Affairs in the Club and Culture committee, it is your main responsibility to have an overview of KKU’s finances.

In addition, you will be the contact person for the student association with regards to Hansa. You will have exciting tasks and work behind the scenes to find an attractive range of products and suitable prices.
