The Economics & Business Society
As a fresher new to life at university, joining a society might not be among the top priorities on your to-do list. However, university may become surprisingly lonely during the first year and joining a society enables you to meet fabulous, like-minded people outside of the student halls and the courses you are enrolled in.
The Economics and Business society is not restricted to students pursuing a degree in Economics or Business. The only requirement is that you are passionate and interested in the subjects, and eager to experiment and test your limits. Not only does it allow you to acquire new skills, through workshops such as ‘How to start my own business?’, but it is also a great way to network with academia and company representatives through lectures and different company tours. During the previous academic years the members of the society were given tours at Bloomberg and the London Metal Exchange to name a few.
For the more adventurous members and those who enjoy a good time, a treasure hunt around the city of London was held, and will be held this year too. The treasure hunt is great if you want to socialise and meet the other society members, while having a good time.
If the society sounds interesting, which it most definitely is, or you are eager to find out more come check our Facebook page . The page is frequently updated and will include meet and greet dates for fresher’s week for those who are interested. To join the society you have to pay a small membership fee, which can be done either online or at the student union. We hope to see many new faces in the coming year.
