Kicking off the academic year with a bang! Introweek’22 recap

Without no hesitation, we had an amazing week full of awesome series of events for our newcomers. The Introweek started with a Roosta Boot camp where Master’s students enjoyed coaching sessions and networking until morning. And continued with events for our international students where they received the most significant information about settling in Estonia and discovering the scenic Tallinn’s Old Town.   

Further two days were educational, full of meaningful seminars dedicated to motivation, and goal setting,  which were followed by info sessions. Students also had an opportunity to acquire their skills in investing, and enterprising lifestyles within the outstanding speech by Alumnus and Co-Founder of Landex and Finbay – Randy Padar. Continued with the lecture about Marketing that revealed the main marketing trends for the upcoming future: technology, customer psychology, and behavior. Moreover, students had mindfulness exercises and brought out how to keep mentally fit.

There was also time for unforgettable sunset, fresh air, and a breeze on a boat party. Inspiring exhibitions, adventurous mini golf, laser tag game, and events that encourage positive attitudes, creative thinking, problem-solving and fun

Introweek culminated with our amazing EBStival, and this year we started a new tradition – EBS Talks – a conference-style segment with awe-inspiring speeches from our Alumni. It’s our great pleasure to gather our Alumni and share with you how they are approaching, acquired the skills at EBS, and unlocked new opportunities. Liisa-Maria Lillepea– the Head of Marketing at Tuuland Co-founder of Basaar shared her view on sustainability, and how sustainable practices improve the quality of our lives, protect our ecosystem, and preserve natural resources for future generations. The second outstanding speaker was Kaspar Tiri – Co-founder of Ready Player Me , named to Forbes 30 Under 30. The main message of Kaspar’s speech was: ” Keep swimming, keep swimming” and never give up even if you got a lot of rejections. 

The third EBS Alumni was Martin Rauman – Jolos Partner and Board member. He shared his experience in launching a full-spectrum creative agency, and how to stand out and succeed in today’s rapidly evolving and ever-changing world. 

Within the panel discussion our speakers Mart Habakuk, Katri Teller, and Jan Andresoo shared their wisdom and provided insights to create real value.

We continued with the thumping bass lines, syncopated rhythms, and repetitive grooves, from Lexsoul Dancemachin eand DJs who made your night amazing. 

EBS Introweek and EBStival main organiser Liisa Maide said: “With every year the event is growing bigger and better. I’m glad that so many people from our Alumni community came to the EBStival. As I like to see it, it’s like a yearly family reunion, where people come together and enjoy each other’s company. I would also really like to thank my team – without you, it would not have been possible to organise such an event”.
