We know what you're thinking: 'Investment Society is boring/nerdy/exclusive/mathematical/not fun.' We've heard it all before, but we promise you that you couldn't be any further from the truth! So don't scroll past us without learning more about our offerings!
At Investment Society, we've decided to take a new approach. Gone are the days where you had to be an economics/finance student to join our society. We welcome all students from any degree or background and encourage you to join, even if you don't know the slightest thing about investing. Why? Well, the Investment Society is particularly welcoming to the EPS Community since we know many students who study mechanical or chemical engineering, as well as various other EPS disciplines of course, have gone on to forge careers in the financial world and we’re here to support you.
We promise that not only will you learn some new skills at our beginner Investing 101 sessions, you'll have a great time and make new friends too. Our events are going to be exciting and unique, our committee is dedicated and diverse, and we’re here to help you. Whether your aim is to learn the fundamentals of investing, to land your dream job in finance, or simply to have fun and meet new people, our society is the best place to do so.
If you want to learn about the basics of investing, share your investment ideas with others, or simply want to make new friends, become a member of our society! It's free, easy, and will give you access to all of our events and content.
Check out our social media pages across LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram @uobinvest and blog: https://www.uobinvest.org. We also have a brand new website www.uobinvestsoc.co.uk! If you’d like to talk to us or work with us, please email us on email@example.com.
