SNNC – Behind the Scenes


In 1978, Mats Nyqvist, a student at the Stockholm School of Economics, got a hold of the guest list of that years’ Nobel Banquet and decided to arrange an after party in the Student Association premises. The secretive festivity had humble beginnings, but gained notoriety when a Nobel Laureate told a TV reporter that Nobel NightCap was the part of the Nobel week that he was looking forward to the most. What started with “pytt i panna” in the Great Hall has grown exponentially and now attracts more than half of the Nobel Laureates.

The Students’ Nobel NightCap is the annual after party to the Nobel Banquet held on the 10th of December. The party hosts around 1500 guests and is visited by representatives from the Swedish parliament, members of the royal family, as well as leaders from the Swedish business world. A different university in Stockholm hosts the party each year, and students from multiple schools come together to organize it. This year, the Nobel NightCap returns to the Stockholm School of Economics where it all began 40 years ago.
