THE UCT GSB STUDENT SOCIETIES

Student societies are a great opportunity to extend your networks and business skills. The following GSB Student societies are available:

AFRICA BUSINESS CLUB

The Africa Business Club seeks to bring together UCT GSB students, alumni and organisations from around the world who share an interest in Africa.

CONSULTING CLUB

Established in 2012, the Management Consulting Club assists MBA students in pursuing a career in management consulting. The aim of the club is to give you exposure to and understanding of what management consulting is, introduce you to companies that are recruiting in this space, and prepare you adequately for case interviews. 

Each year, the Consulting Club organises the Business Tomorrow Conference that seeks to gauge the relative risks and rewards of investing in emerging markets. Each year students put the question to industry and thought leaders to spark debate and ignite positive action.

It offers a platform whereby the community is able to network, ask questions and stay up to date with what's going on in the field of finance.
