AY 2011/2012 has been a massive success for the Business Society. We have been branded the largest Business society and 2nd biggest society on the University of Leeds Campus, with more students year on year identifying the massive opportunities the society can offer them during their time at Leeds.
AY 2012/2013 is set to be even more successful.
The Society is partnered with some of the biggest and most influential financial companies in the country. We focus on helping students enter into the following career areas: Finance, Investment Banking, Management, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Public Sector and IT Consulting. Throughout the year the Society runs specific skills sessions provided by our sponsors. We provide Employability Workshops, CV Checks, Mock Interviews, Application Assistance and Guest Speakers throughout the year. Further to this we will be offering trips to academic and educational events.
This year, the society was sponsored by massive names such as PWC and IBM. LUBS also had Citigroup, Bloomberg and other top companies host events for members to participate. These events consist of all expenses paid dinners, whereby members can ask employers about internships, graduate opportunities or just get to know the company and its industry. These events have proven successful for the society, with several of our members gaining jobs with these companies for their placement years and after their degree.
This year LUBS Soc have secured events with:
Proctor and Gamble
The Co-operative Group
InterExchange Career Training USA
All about Careers
And many more to confirm for AY 2012/2013
This year LUBS have organised an array of events for our members. As well as having a buzzing Business Socials and dinner parties throughout the year, LUBS held the first Ball at the Hilton Hotel and the unforgettable Amsterdam weekender. All these events aim to get members socialising and meeting new people, but most of all provide outstanding memories for your time at University.
Other events the society have hosted include International social events, go- karting and visits to company offices. For 2012/2013 LUBS plan on bringing the same high standard of social events to make your first year at Leeds as memorable as possible.
