Botswana Accountancy College’s International Finance and Banking Society hosted the first ever Annual Banking and Finance Competition on Friday 5 October. It is led by Mrs Cynthia Chakahwa, who is a Senior Lecturer at BAC’s School of Business and Leisure.

The competition seeks to capture the contestants’ hidden talents through an industry skills competition. The BA (Hons) International Finance and Banking students were given current work-place scenarios and asked to present clearly outlined expectations and outcomes for each situation.

The responses from these problems will be assessed by industry partners and  selected individuals will be awarded a ticket to the firm’s graduate trainee program.

Good luck to all those who entered!

SHU Fest ’18 starts 5 March

The International Experience Team is proud to present SHU Fest 2018 – a week-long extravaganza of live music, dance, film screenings, crafts and much more!

Join us across both campuses as we celebrate the talent and diversity of our staff, students and special guests. Take in exhilarating performances of music and culture, and get involved in interactive workshops and social events.

The 40 act line-up opens with Professors Cranton, Eccleston and Sammon performing as Three Profs and No Piano. They’ll be playing rock, pop and folk with guitars, mandolin, ukulele and a sprinkling of good humour (but no piano).

Hallam Union’s Give It a Go series presents Salsa for beginners to get your hips moving! Come and dance, bake, crochet at various workshops, and test your knowledge in the SHU Fest Quiz. And of course, there is a whole host of musical acts from both home and international students.

To wrap up the week we invite you to vote for a day trip to either Newcastle or Oxford, both of which are well known for culture and diversity. We will decide the destination by a student vote on our SHU GoGlobal Facebook page, please vote for your favourite place by 5.00pm on Wednesday 28 February.

Get ready to GoGlobal on campus!
