Biz-Buzz

Biz Buzz

Finance is at the heart of every business decision, but business leaders are no longer satisfied solely with financial performance – ethical behavior, sustainable procedures and environmental care are now just as important. Accountants of the future can expect to be involved in a wider range of activities such as embedding company’s impact on nature and being ethical even when no one is watching! To completely prepare accountants for the future, the theme for biz*buzz 2020 is sustainability and ethics.

biz*buzz is a bouquet of activities that span developing skills to gaining experience to getting jobs. The festival is on in February and March 2020 and will give extra-ordinary opportunities to students to showcase their expertise and to gain new insights.
