 The Business Society 

The Enterprise Team encourages all Business students at UWS to get involved in a number of initiatives and enterprising activities! These include:

  • Enrolling onto Enterprise modules

  • Joining the Business Society

  • Attending Enterprise Discussion Groups, and Student Drop-ins

  • Entering their Business ideas to the annual competition and events

 About Us 

The Business Society was established in 2020, and aims to provide both academic and social benefits. With the society, students can meet and learn from each other all while studying for their degree. The Business Society highlights three key values. These are Responsibility, Capability, and Creativity.

  • Firstly, Society encourages students to take the initiative and develop key responsibilities that prepare them for the world of work.

  • Secondly, the Society aims to centralise business, managerial, and leadership skills which are developed as students get involved and undertake society roles.

  • Thirdly, asa students progress towards graduation, evidence of enterprising activities and behaviours are desired by employers and industries - so simply being creative and consistently contributing ideas to the student group is important.​

  • Are enrolled onto a Business programme or not
