Mentorship & Networking
BizFrosh is a fun event filled with games, challenges and prizes held in a hybrid format during September. This event is held to help incoming 1st and 2nd year students in the commerce and management program to explore their field of study and meet new people. They will also get the chance to meet upper year students who will act as mentors to them and help them with general queries about their program.
The BizNetworking event will serve as an opportunity for students to enhance their networking skills and build their personal brands by interacting and communicating with various industry reps. The virtual event will begin with a round of introductions, followed by a keynote speech, a contest and then a few hours of networking time between students and industry reps.
