Events

Imperial College Business School students have access to a wide range of events across the Business School and College: from guest speakers, workshops and seminars to festivals, performances and social events.

Student social events are an integral and fun part of campus life. In addition to events during induction, such as the school-wide quiz, our social activities leaders work together across programmes to organise two Business School-wide social events: a talent show in February and a sport event in the summer term. The Students’ Union also run a range of social events for the Imperial College community, such as postgraduate socials, the College summer ball and regular theme nights, such as wine-tasting and quiz nights, at the postgraduate bar.

Hear from inspirational guest speakers at the Business School upcoming events and Imperial College public lectures, or attend exhibitions, concerts and creative workshops with Imperial music and arts.

Explore the unexpected side of science at Imperial Fringe events throughout the year and see the very best in science and arts at the annual Imperial Festival, which features interactive activities, tours, inspirational talks, performances and engaging workshops. This is a great opportunity to learn about ground-breaking research from international experts in departments including Mechanical Engineering and Materials.

I serve as the President of the Africa Business Club, am part of the Student Investment Fund and I am also a Student Ambassador for the Enterprise Lab. In these roles, it has been a pleasure being able to reach out to a very wide network of people in various fields who share a common identity as part of the Imperial College community.
