Women in Business Society

Society Description

At BU Women in Business, we aim to empower female students and support them in pursuing a successful career in business or finance through boosting both confidence and employability.

By arranging extensive and varied events such as: networking sessions, presentations and workshops, we believe all members will secure a competitive edge within any industry. We strive to provide our members with exceptional opportunities to grow their network by learning directly from alumni, professionals and experienced students. Subsequently, this will provide our members with the confidence to take on the challenging positions that potential employers look to fill.

Our members will get valuable support in pursing their career choices or simply educated on any opportunities that may be of interest. We are open to any course, but our workshops and networking events will be tailored towards: business, investment, wealth management, accounting and marketing.

By joining this society, you will become a strong advocate for change, collaboration and diversity within the business industry and help women empowerment become a living reality!
