Our Mission Statement: “We want to enhance the Student Experience with a focus on Business”
Our three key values;
Connect, Engage, Grow
The Business Society @ HWU aims to provide its members with the opportunity to network with fellow students across all the business degree pathways and year groups, whilst also giving insights into career prospects in Business, Finance and other relevant industries. The society provides a link for students to connect with their peers, the Student Union, and other relevant organisations out with University life.
We do host socials! However, due to the recent COVID-19 restrictions the society will plan to host various virtual events. These range from networking with peers, to interactive discussions on current events from alumni, and maybe the odd quiz night! Therefore, we want to offer more of a service by putting students into contact with potential employers, giving them an opportunity to use the theory they learn in lectures and put it into practice during these sessions with industry experts. Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten the real social side… We also plan to host some evening events (when we can!), so keep an eye out for details coming soon. To keep up to date with these events please follow us on Instagram @hwbms ; LinkedIn @TheBusinessSocietyHWU and like our Facebook page.
The Society membership is FREE! We are open to ALL students at Heriot-Watt, you don’t have to be studying a business degree to come and join us. If you are interested in joining or have any queries, please message the Facebook page, email us, or come along to our next event, we are a friendly bunch!
We want to help the students of Heriot Watt with their own businesses, so we'd be happy to promote your business page. Message us for details!
If you are looking to work with or support the society, or would like to sponsor us please email us at; BusinessManagement.firstname.lastname@example.org
A society is what you make it... It is all about ensuring the student experience is at a maximum.
