MUTIS

Mission
• To develop our members through high-quality financial education and practical hands-on sessions so as to raise the level of financial literacy and experience across our university campus.
• To bridge our members with corporations through recruitment events and networking sessions so as to increase their career-choice and help our members discover their ideal employer.
• To serve as a medium for like-minded individuals to share finance-related ideas.

Who We Are:
From its relatively recent conception, Manchester University Trading and Investment Society has quickly managed to establish itself as one of the largest societies at the University of Manchester with 2010/11 membership reaching a level in excess of 1,200. Due to the society’s focus on careers, MUTIS has been able to actively assist its members in securing highly competitive summer internships at pre-eminent financial institutions – an opportunity which has then led to many students being offered fulltime graduate positions. As a society which offers free membership MUTIS hopes to encourage a diverse membership base by welcoming students from all academic disciplines regardless of their prior market knowledge or experience. We seek to connect those who have not only a passion for the financial markets but also a strong commitment to aiding the understanding and broadening the knowledge of their fellow members.

What We Do:
One of our core aims is to improve and advance our members’ career prospects. We pursue this objective both on an internal basis, by leveraging the experience of our senior members and alumni, and by working closely with Manchester Careers Service. This is complemented by workshops run by industry leaders focusing on application advice, CVs and interview skills.

In addition to weekly meetings we have a busy calendar of keynote speakers and university scholars who provide members with insightful views and opinions from within the financial industry and academia. In addition to external speakers senior society members are encouraged to aid the development of their peers through regular talks and presentations which outline the fundamentals of trading and investment.

Our Facebook group is at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MUTIS/
We look forward to members' enquiries at info@mutis.co.uk

IBFE Society

The International Business, Finance, and Economics Society is a freshly restructured society where a new committee, a committed union recognition, and many new affiliations came into place. Originally, we were only for the IBFE students, but since last year we have opened our doors to anyone interested in Business, Finance, or Economics. The IBFE society provides a great platform for our members to learn more and experience more about the different aspects and fields of business in real life. We pride ourselves in linking our members academically, professionally, and socially right from the very beginning of university and thereafter. Throughout the year we aim to host a range of events and activities from socialising with IBFE members, compete against other societies with our football team, to networking with global and local partners. Best of all, it’s FREE to join! Just follow the next links to become a member:

Accounting Society

The society aims to bring together all students on the BSc Accounting course at more social and informal events to share with each other their experiences of applying for, or carrying out a work placement. This will allow the 1st and 2nd year students in particular to benefit from the advice and knowledge of the final year students. We aim to organise events such as drinks evenings, lunches or dinners, to provide a more relaxed environment in which everyone can talk to each other and feel comfortable.  We also hope to organise more events with the ICAEW and member accounting firms. This will be to provide more networking opportunities to students, which are vital in gaining an understanding of the firms and the industry, and will hopefully serve as an advantage for the students when applying to such firms.
