Commerce clubs and societies - School of Business and Economics - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

Commerce Clubs and Societies

Make the most of your time at university and join a student club or society. Events and activities are held throughout the year, involving the College of Business and Law, and other partners.

What clubs can I join?

There are some clubs and societies that are just for business and economics students. Others like Entré have members from other colleges, so you'll get to meet a wide range of people. So if you're new to UC or returning, pop in to see the club executives or email them, sign up and get involved in some of the many academic and social activities on offer this year.
