The vision to create a global networking association was developed by four MBA students:
(Three of these students are among the graduates achieving an MBA with Distinction in 2015.)
They received funding through the Vice Chancellor STEPs (Students Experience Projects) platform where students bid for the development of their ideas to senior management of the University.
The new group emerged after winning a 'Dragons’ Den Pitch' to continue the vision of connecting and networking students.
The UoB-MBA Global Networking Association launch was on 18 February 2016
This event and other fun-filled activities aimed at networking and enhancing students' experience are to be organised by the Global Networking Association.
