GADDEN is the largest career fair within the Nordic region for business, economics, law, logistics, and environmental science studies. This annual event usually takes place at the School of Business, Economics, and Law at the University of Gothenburg. It has constantly been growing since the first fair took place in 1982. Last year, the fair was held digitally for the first time, which meant new challenges and opportunities. GADDEN is the largest project of the student union (HHGS) to open a line of mutually beneficial communication between students and potential employers. In addition, we strive to nurture long relationships for mutual growth. 

Are you and your company interested in exhibiting or being seen at the GADDEN fair? Or do you want more information about what it means? Whatever the reason, you are warmly welcomed to contact one of us on this year’s committee. 

Welcome to GADDEN!


The career fair GADDEN at Gothenburg School of Business, Economics and Law is Scandinavia’s largest career fair for students within the fields of business, logistics, law and environmental science. GADDEN is a two-day career fair with about 100 exhibiting companies and organizations, as well as approximately 6000 visitors. GADDEN 2020 took place on the 17-18th of February. GADDEN is the ultimate platform for students and companies to network and create important relationships for the future. In addition, many inspiring lectures take place during this exciting fair, all available for you to attend. These two days in November both end with inspirational evening activities: a mingle event and a grand banquet – events you don’t want to miss!

GADDEN is the largest project of the university and is organized entirely by its students. The project committee consists of seventeen students that work for nearly a whole year to organize and structure this extensive career fair. Throughout the year, GADDEN holds numerous events at the university, several of which are arranged together with our main partners EY and Handelsbanken. In 2017, we left earlier printed exhibition catalogs behind and took a step into the digital world and in 2021 we put all our focus in to launching our new website. This decision was based with the focus of becoming more sustainable and, in 2017, we also became a completely vegetarian fair.

Every year, GADDEN has a theme that sets the tone for this annual happening, but especially the two days of the career fair. The theme of 2022 is “Our time is now”. More information about this can be found below “This year’s fair – This year’s theme” .
