2018

Ethics Case Competition | 23-24 March

In 2018, the USYD and UTS chapters intend to explore more opportunities that are available to us. One way we chose to do so was to participate in an Ethics Award Competition (organised by the Beta Alpha Psi International Organisation and sponsored by Grant Thornton). This competition entails the communication of the learning of ethics in a more effective manner. In response to that, we borrowed the concept of a Hackathon competition and merged elements of fun.

The UTS/USYD Beta Alpha Psi ‘Meet Your Boss on the Greens’ Lawn Bowls Event is one of our flagship events for members to practice their soft skills in a relaxed environment during a friendly lawn bowls competition. This flagship event usually follows Professional Development Workshops hosted by Beta Alpha Psi in the previous semester. In 2017 we hosted a Business Etiquette Seminar which taught our members how to communicate in a professional environment. In 2018 we will look towards hosting a similar workshop series culminating in the ultimate networking event for members to put their skills to practice.

This event provides high achieving business students with the unique opportunity to meet and network with highly successful Accounting and Finance representatives from a range of well-regarded organisations.

A massive thank you to the following sponsors who attended in 2017:

We had 9 sponsor representatives and 16 students throughout the afternoon, leading to some great intimate networking and fun bowls.
