Accounting and Financial Management

About us

Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) is one of the social hubs for the Business and Management Department which aims to bring together students of interests that can range from accounting and management to consultancy or trading. Regardless of academic interests or department, this society is open to everyone.

Throughout the year we will host virtual, interactive and face-to-face events(all in line with government guidelines). We will provide a variety of workshops, such as; networking, trading and CV/LinkedIn building. As well as, we will host guest speakers, socials and more.

AFM will give you the opportunities to develop: soft and hard skills which are vital for the professional environment; networking with peers and employers; workshops to aid CV and LinkedIn building; meet people with similar interest from several departments; gain academic insight from 2nd/3rd year students and a large event during spring if government guidelines allow.

Membership

The structure of our memberships for the academic year 2020/21 will be done by term. For term 1 we will charge a membership price of £2 which will give you access to workshops, guest speaker, skills building and networking to name a few.

After the holidays we will charge term 2 memberships for £3 as a competition will be ran with prizes, not only this there will be academic insights for exams. As well as, there will be socials that follow government guidelines and workshops. The spring event if it is allowed will have an extra cost but will be discounted for members.

Final term has no price yet due to the uncertainty of what the government will allow us to do. If people not a part of the society wish to come to a workshop or hear a guest speaker, there will be a charge of £1 per session.

Events and Activities

During term 1 there will be numerous events/activities that members can be a part of. We aim to make as many of the activities face to face during the first term as long as we follow guidelines. List of events/activities are below:

  • Pub quizzes / Kahoot
  • Online business simulation competition with prizes
  • Workshops: Networking, CV, LinkedIn, Skills, Academic Based, Trading etc...
  • Casual Social: Bowling/Christmas dinner/ etc... (depends on guidelines)
  • A fundraiser which members will decide

Expect to see these in Term 2 alongside the ones above too!

  • Guest speakers
  • Boat party in spring if guidelines allow
  • Collaboration with other societies
  • Facilitate activities that members would like to have
