Welcome to LUMSA
Student societies at Lancaster University Management School have joined forces. In 2010 the LUMS societies combined and founded Lancaster University Management School Association (LUMSA), which serves as a new umbrella forum.
The mission of LUMSA is to maximise student welfare by helping and advising societies for increased quality activities in LUMS. The LUMSA board serves as a forum for enhanced communication and coordination between societies. All major societies at Lancaster University Management School are participating, with more than 1000 members combined.
The Economics Society has been run with the mission to increase students’ knowledge about current economical issues and to be a valuable resource to students of LUMS.
Bright Futures is a society that cooperates with graduate employers, students and other partners, coaching undergraduates in the skills to get their desired job, and to excel in their chosen career path. The entire portfolio of personal development activities aims to provide members with a successful future.
Lancaster University Investment & Finance Society is the premier academic student society focusing on supporting students with their career plans in the financial sector. Its members show a high interest in accounting and finance.
Society of the International Partnership of Business Schools
LUSIPBS is representing students on the BBA in European Management, a unique programme organised in a partnership of leading business schools in eight countries. Its members constitute a highly international body of highly-skilled students with very diverse interests in business.
This society helps students to understand that marketing goes far beyond the theoretical knowledge that is given during the lectures. To achieve their aim, the society actively looks for guest speakers from industry to show what marketing in the 'real world' looks like. Furthermore, marketing simulation games are organised to test member’s knowledge.
SIFE Lancaster is an international student-led organisation which seeks to change lives through economic opportunity. We operate local and international projects such as maintaining water pumps in developing countries and teaching financial literacy to cottage industries in Tanzania. Local projects include free seminars for business leaders and organising a farmers market on the University campus.
Lancaster Entrepreneurs consists of mostly entrepreneurial minded students. The society organizes a number of high profile events for its members such as talks by successful entrepreneurs. Lancaster Entrepreneurs also provides creative workshops to students to develop transferable skills
The aim of the Consultancy Society is to provide a gateway to one of the most highly sought-after careers post graduation. It provides the opportunity to face challenging, fulfilling, and impactful work in the world’s largest companies.
Please remember that LUMSA is not a society. It is a board that governs the funding of all societies and acts as an umbrella forum for them. You cannot join LUMSA without being a LUMS Ambassador or being part of the Exec of one of the listed societies.
