Students enjoy inaugural School of Management Postgraduate Ball
Last week, postgraduate students from the School of Management gathered to enjoy the first ever School of Management Postgraduate Ball, held in the grandeur of the city’s Roman Baths and Pump Rooms.
Organised by a group of MSc students and led by student committee leaders Fiona Sibley and Beth Rowe of the MSc in Management programme, the Ball had a Rio theme with entertainment from Brazilian dancers, jugglers and magicians, plus a cabaret performance and a live band. It was noted by staff that the work put in by the students to organise the event was phenomenal.
Organiser Beth Rowe said:
“The Ball was really an opportunity for us to organise an event that allowed students and faculty members alike to celebrate the hard work and performance of the school year together. Our hardest task came from our decision to design the ball so that it would promote networking opportunities, as we felt this would benefit students in making contacts before the summer.
To cater for this, we obtained the sponsorship of the School’s Corporate Partner, Proctor and Gamble. Recent Bath graduates now working for P&G were on site to talk to students. Their kind sponsorship, as well as that of the School of Management, allowed us to organise an exciting and diverse amount of entertainment. We hope having held the event in the historic and iconic venue of the Roman Baths and Pump Rooms gave the students who attended a memorable experience.”
Other students involved in organising the event were Ellie West (MSc in Management), Hugh Ayling (MSc in Marketing), Neha Vohra (MSc in Management) and last but not least the photographer for the evening, Fernando Wu (MSc Marketing).
The Student of the Year awards, as voted for by the MSc students, were also presented during the evening. The winners were:
- MSc in Management, Rajesh Vasudevan
- MSc in Accounting and Finance, Elena Reichert
- MSc in Marketing, Kenny Diack
- MSc in Advanced Management Practice, Saylee Sholapurkar
- MSc in Innovation & Technology Management, Nathan Kannan
- MSc in International Management, Romaric Beylie
