Abstract

The University of Notre Dame Australia, Fremantle’s School of Business recently celebrated the launch of its new student association, the Business Society.

The organisation, which formed at the end of last year, is the representative body for business students. Its aim is to aid and support students throughout their time at the University by providing social and academic initiatives.

Publications representative, Alice Farley, said the committee members were eager to begin work on this year’s projects.

“Our events will not only encourage business students to get involved in uni life, but also provide opportunities for networking with other peers,” said Ms Farley.

Towards the end of last year the Society held its inaugural ‘Business Breakfast’, inviting lecturers, current students and alumni, in an effort to initiate closer ties between past and present Notre Dame business students.

The event was attended by a number of successful alumni and included a discussion about the transition between university and the work force

Senior Lecturer, Professor Derek Parkin, who led the discussion, commented on the professionalism of the students involved, “I have attended many similar functions and this was at a high level. It was a very positive and encouraging event,” he said.

Due to its success, the breakfast will feature, along with other academic and social events, on the 2008 Business Society calendar.
