Events

Add Value to You

Each year, we coordinate with top-tier companies, academics, and entrepreneurs to bring you a varied roster of events. Each event has been tailored to be insightful in content, accessible for students across all management degree programmes, and, most importantly, value-adding to your employability and skills-development needs.

They range from engaging, behind-the-scenes showcases of corporate strategy, to business conferences and networking events, to challenging hackathons and contests.

Limited Spaces

Most of our events are run exclusively for Bath students and involve some of the biggest names, but have limited spaces. As such, we highly recommend that you get your tickets as early as possible.

Tickets for our events are made available via Eventbrite up to 3 weeks before the event date. If you aren’t early enough and we run out of tickets, you put yourself down on the waitlist instead!

You can find our organiser page here.

Our Goal

Our goal is for management students to derive the maximum possible benefit from each of our events.

Because of this, attendance is completely free of charge if you commit yourself fully to each event you attend.

All we ask is that you take full advantage of the skills and knowledge being imparted to you in each event.
