Business Society

The Business Society aims to bring together like-minded students who study or have an interest in business. 

Membership for the Business Society is a must for any student studying business, has an interest in business or knows they will end up one day being employed by a business!

We work with BMEc and the large network of top companies in the world today; joining the Business Society brings you one step closer to that dream career.
We hold regular careers workshops, talks and networking opportunities with young professionals, like-minded students and graduate recruiters! Hear from  some of the most influential people in the business world and become inspired by the success of local entrepreneurs keen to pass on their knowledge.
In addition to supplying you with the resources to build on your employability skills, we also strive to make your time at university the best years of your life. Come to our regular social events, join us at our annual ball, and meet people from all over the world through our international events!

Leaf Awards

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the present committee have achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:

Below are the Leaves we have achieved so far this year:

Inclusivity Leaf

The Inclusivity Leaf is awarded to groups who have taken positive steps to increase the diversity of their membership and include as many members as possible. They have made specific efforts to include students that don’t traditionally engage, without ignoring or neglecting their current membership or other student groups.



Social Leaf

The Social leaf is awarded to groups who have taken active steps to include as many members as possible and regularly engage in various social activities, including those organised by - and with - other societies/sports clubs.


Development Leaf

The Development leaf is awarded to groups who have taken active steps to develop themselves, offer development opportunities to their members, build on the successes and failures of previous years and/or worked to maintain the high standards of previous years.
