Alliance MBS International Programmes Society

 

The Alliance MBS International Society is made up of students who have either spent a year on exchange or will be going on exchange during their time at Alliance MBS.  The Society runs various social events throughout the year and sets up a mentoring scheme for exchange students prior to arrival. All Alliance MBS undergraduate students are welcome to join the society.  Visit their facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/MBS.INTSOC/

Alliance MBS Accounting Society

 

The Accounting Society is built around bringing together people who are interested in the accountancy careers. Don’t worry if you have no experience in accountancy, or for that matter, what it even entails. The society aims to educate people around all the exciting areas of accountancy, not just pushing buttons on a calculator. As well as educating, the society is keen in helping people who aim at different future prospects to achieve their goals via various career events. This is all on top of having social events that will change your opinion on how fun accountants can be outside of work and study!

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:

MUTIS

 

MUTIS Finance Society has established itself over the years as one of the largest societies at the University of Manchester, with its 2016/17 membership reaching a level in excess of 5,000. 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 full time 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 not only have a passion for the financial markets, but also a strong commitment to support fellow members in understanding and broadening their knowledge.

 

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. Furthermore, senior society members are encouraged to assist the development of their peers through regular talks and presentations, which outline the fundamentals of trading and investing.
