Joining a society is a fantastic way to get to know new people and get settled in in your new city.
Sheffield Students' Union is home to over 300 societies, so you're bound to find at least one you like the sound of. You could continue pursuing your hobbies from sixth form, or why not try something new?
Below you can hear more about some of the societies we think Management School students might find particularly interesting, insightful or relevant.
The Management Society is an academic society, and their members are mostly students that study in the Management School. They organise meet and greets for new students who are keen to meet coursemates, socials (including non-alcoholic socials), events such as summer and winter balls, a society football and netball team, careers events and volunteering opportunities for members to get involved in.
The Investment Society provides a platform whereby students can share their passion for anything investment related. They aim to do this through several channels which include the following: inviting students to attend talks given by guest speakers, participating as an analyst on our investment fund, coming along to weekly sessions held by their trading division, or contributing to their student magazine, the investment review. They look to provide society members with opportunities which will help them to succeed in the job market, such as CV workshops, as well as networking opportunities with graduate employers. In addition, they hold numerous social events which are an excellent, and more informal, way to meet like-minded students.
Women in Business Society aims to encourage and support women aspiring to enter a career in Business, Finance, Commercial Law and more. During the academic year, they strive to deliver all the necessary information and skills needed for the members to increase their overall level of confidence and employability. They organise comprehensive workshops, networking events, guest speaker events, and fun socials for society members. Thus, members gain a comprehensive knowledge of the industries they're considering, build important connections and get first-hand advice from other women who share their experiences with them.
