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.
