Our esteemed range of sponsors, ranging from “The Big 4″, mid-tier firms and accreditation bodies, allow us to provide you with the most diverse range of opportunities and career pathways to ensure you know exactly where you want to take your degree. In addition to our value sponsors, we also value the support we receive from the Student Union (UMSU), Careers & Employment, the Commerce Student Centre, the Department of Accounting and the Faculty of Business and Economics.
Upcoming key highlights for 2015 include:
Our new feature event, 1st Year’s Professional Services Seminar, which will allow our first year members to learn about programs from professional services firms targeted specifically to them. This new event will give our sponsors a streamlined channel to inform first year students about career pathways and also give our members the chance to have any burning questions answered.
Our Q&A Panel Evening, allowing students to gain an insight into the professional experiences of recent graduates and will provide an opportunity to network with both panellists and Human Resources representatives from a range of different firms.
Professional Development Week, hosted by our sponsors and the University’s Careers & Employment team, which will assist you with structuring the perfect CV as well as conducting mock assessment centres.
The Platinum Case Competition, which will be hosted by our Platinum Sponsor, CPA. This will be a fantastic opportunity to work through a case study in teams and present findings to an audience of established professionals.
Experts in Industry and Overseas Students’ Opportunities allowing for students to network with experienced accountants and industry representatives so they can be aware of career opportunities outside of professional services and in the international market.
BBQs and Luncheons, where students have the opportunity to chat with our sponsors in a casual environment.
I look forward to meeting you all at our events and wish you all the best in your university journey!
