University of Sydney Business School Student Clubs and Societies Program
The Business School has a very active and vibrant clubs and societies culture. As well as being a great way to meet people, by becoming a member of a society, you can attend career networking, guest speaker and academic development activities.
You also get some great resources produced by clubs and Society's like careers guides with internship opportunities. Students have made lifelong friends at a club event they attended in their first year of university.
The Business School Clubs and Societies are supported by our Program Coordinator, who is available to assist new and existing clubs and societies with any support or funding they may require throughout the year.
Support Available to Clubs and Societies
Applying for Funds
Events that are usually eligible for funding include those which provide Business School students with developmental opportunities. For example: guest speaker events, seminars, workshops, industry networking events and conferences, among other things.
Applications for funding towards administration, promotional, website development and other resource expenses will also be considered in this context. Some 'start up' funds are available also. Please note: social events and O Week activities will not be considered for funding.
Contact Sarah Fletcher (Careers and Employability Office) with any queries.
Apply for Funding/Resource
Funding is also available for ethics related events or projects from the Natoli Ethics Fund. In order to apply for funds your event must support the development of ethical awareness, particularly in business ethics, for students of the Business School.
Your application will be considered by members of the Business and Professional Ethics Group (BPEG) who have been asked to manage the funds. There are also funds available for the registration of ethics related conferences.
For further information on this fund contact Sarah Fletcher at the Careers and Employability Office.
Event Promotion and Room Bookings
There is storage space in the Merewether Building, as well as the Storie Dixson Building.
Clubs and Societies events and activities can be promoted via the Careers and Employability Office Newsletter, online calendar, Blackboard, Student Announcements and Facebook. You must contact Sarah Fletcher at least 7 days in advance, otherwise there is no guarantee that the event will be promoted in time.
For events bringing Industry representatives onto Campus and with no more than 40 people attending, societies can book the Staff Meeting Room 214, 215 in H69. Sarah Fletcher will need to be in attendance and please note there is a 'no alcohol' policy for this room.
Clubs and Societies can also book Venues through the University of Sydney Union or Venues Collection which allows you to make free bookings between 1-2pm, and to pay a discounted amount at other times.
