The QUT Economics and Finance Society (EFS) is a student run social club aimed at engaging and connecting students, in particular, but not limited to those studying Economics or Finance. EFS aims to inform, inspire and incorporate its members into the real world through professional workshops, extensive networking events and educational seminars. Ultimately, EFS aims to position its members effectively for future employment.
Your EFS membership will give you access to the society’s tools and resources such as invaluable employment opportunities and early-bird discounts to all our events. Your membership is not only a financial investment in EFS but an investment in your future.
Throughout the year EFS hosts numerous events. Some of our biggest social and networking events include Beer Stock Exchange (BSX) and Fastrack. If you’re looking to get an idea of how a stock market works and enjoy a few drinks at the same time, then our annual BSX event is for you! Assets such as Beer, Wine and Spirits are traded and purchased using prop money to be cashed in at the bar… the aim of the game, buy LOW and drink HIGH. Conversely, Fastrack is EFS’ leading networking event. This event has been awarded QUT’s ‘Networking event of the year’ in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Fastrack remains as one of the biggest networking nights for all business students as it provides the opportunity to hear from keynote speakers and interact with corporate representatives in a less formal style. Fastrack 2016 is one of our biggest points of pride as last year there were over 100 corporate representatives including UBS Investment Bank, EY, KPMG, Accenture and more.
So, you’re probably wondering how can you join EFS? You can become a member of the Economics and Finance Society in-person at our O-Week marquee, when purchasing an online ticket or at the front door of our events.
If you’re always up for a good time, can hold down a drink, keen to fast track your career or simply want to learn more about what a career in Economics and Finance can provide you, then becoming an EFS member is a must for you.
