UWTSD's Swansea Business Campus hosts Swansea Finance Professionals Network meeting


07.03.2019

UWTSD’s Swansea Business campus hosted a Swansea Finance Professionals networking meeting on February 20 to explore new opportunities between the University and the business community.

The event, organised by UWTSD and Shout out Wales at Swansea's Patti Raj, was sponsored by DJM Solicitors and was attended by 38 people including Accountants and financial advisors.

DJM Solicitors are a leading law firm based in Swansea providing a range of legal services to an array of clients, with highly respected specialist teams.

UWTSD’s Manjit Biant, Lecturer in Accounting and Finance (Faculty of Business & Management) and Applied Internships said: "It was a very successful networking event which was able to connect the finance community to UWTSD Business School. Making a real difference for one student who attended and as a result of the meeting, has secured an internship with Atkins Accountants, another company that is collaborating with the Business School.”

Employability is a key focus at The Business School in UWTSD at both the Swansea and Carmarthen campuses, with innovative learning and industry collaboration creating more opportunities for students to enhance their employability prospects after graduation. This unique approach of bringing students, academics and businesses together also enables them to explore ideas and create opportunities for the development of new businesses, products and services.

UWTSD ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction in teaching quality in Business Studies in the Sunday Times and Times Good University Guide 2019. UWTSD’s Carmarthen Business School won a Green Gown Award last November in the ‘Tomorrow’s Employees’ category for their ‘Rethinking Business for a Changing World’ initiative.
