But I'm not enterprising! Am I??

Hi, my name is Wei Li Tung and I am a second year Psychology undergraduate.

This is for the novice and the curious wanting to gain exposure in business. Throughout my education years, I have never acquired enterprising knowledge.  I grew up in an environment where ‘Doctor, Lawyer, or Engineer’ was the career path to take. 

My transition from High School to University has been tailored to the science stream. I was clear of my direction. It never occurred to me to think about business. This wasn't me and I thought had nothing to do with my career.

Into the Woods we go! Guild Musical Theatre Group

Fancy becoming a musical theatre star?! Well it sounds like the Guild has the perfect society for you to join.

I spoke to Guild Musical Theatre Group at the January Societies Fair this term and discovered all the wonderful, innovative productions that are happening within their enterprising society. GMTG were busy rehearsing for their production of 'Into the Woods' which was held in the Guild's Debating Hall from 22nd to 25th February this term. It was a fabulous performance and all the artists were brilliant!

B-Start up Bootcamp - Where ideas are created!

Winning team 'Ulyssses'!
The B-Start Up Bootcamp was held from 18th to 20th February and it was a grand success! The 71 students who attended had a wonderful time working on their enterprising solutions to solve problems like the increased obesity in Tonga, making a useful resource out of a square mile in the desert and increasing student engagement in universities.
Runners up - 'Just deserts'!

The winner is the team 'Ulysses' who presented their fantastic idea for an app to connect international students to UK universities and vice -versa. The runners up had a great idea to use human waste to fertilize deserts to make it viable crop land and to fight desertification.
