As ECOMS rolled into a new semester, many exciting events have already been held.
Despite the poor weather, hundreds of people lined up for tickets to our annual ECOMS Ball that was held on 25th August and was sponsored by Pitcher Partners. With 1,320 tickets selling out in a record 34 minutes, we feel a sense of achievement in continuing to organise such an anticipated event. With a Venetian Carnivale theme, the ball was bigger and better than ever.
On the careers side, we also hosted the ECOMS Business Breakfast, sponsored by KPMG, at the Parmelia Hilton. Over a gourmet breakfast nearly 100 students had the chance to discuss career advice, vacation work and employment opportunities with representatives from a range of accounting, finance and marketing firms. Also attending was successful WA business person and executive chairman of Azure Capital, John Poynton who passed on his advice to undergraduates.
