Business Society

Due to the recent change in faculty name from the Management school to Business we have rebranded our society from The Management society to The Business society also.

The University of Southampton Business Society is primarily focussed on helping students from every course within the university's business school to build strong relationships with each other.

We also aim to become a medium for the school to promote events and facilities to be inclusive of all students, whether or not they belong to the faculty.

We thoroughly believe that taking an interest in business is integral to future employability and have confidence that through this society we will engage an interest in business from those within other disciplines. We run a calendar of social events throughout the academic year - for students to engage with their fellow course mates outside of lectures.

We put a strong focus on helping freshers integrate, and make friends by communicating with the business school buddies. With this we hope to create a support network within the faculty and between the different year groups. Our main goal is to help facilitate students to gain as much as possible from their university experience. We will build upon the old society’s sports team and introduce others.

This will help students to get to know each other, work as a team in a fun environment, and help those who do not desire to be part of a sporting society to get some exercise while having great fun. Each year we provide a Christmas Ball and a Summer Ball open to all students at the university.

This gives students something exciting to look forward to, increasing their levels of satisfaction. These balls sell out every year proving to be a huge success among students. Finally, we plan to promote employability and other such events through our Facebook page in order to help students interact with businesses, giving them as much information as possible about the options available both now and in the future.

We will also conduct a book sale in both semesters. .
