Since its foundation, UUMUN cooperates with various prominent companies and persons. They support UUMUN ﬁnancially, but also in other forms, such as by providing trainings for the delegation. Every year, UUMUN is looking for partners that are willing to cooperate in one of our events.
In exchange, UUMUN has in the past few years supported multiple initiatives of its partners, such as a think tank, contact with the Utrecht high potentials, or by promoting its partners at home and abroad. In addition to its diverse delegation, Utrecht has a great reach amongst both national and international students. This oﬀers companies an interesting opportunity to cooperate in various possible ways. By means of such initiatives, UUMUN oﬀers Utrecht students the possibility to become familiar with UUMUN’s partners and business life.
