Girls in Business Digital Camp

Following the successful inaugural Girls in Business Camp in 2019, the 2020 Girls in Business Digital Camp is here!

The Girls in Business Digital Camp is designed for female students in years 10, 11 or 12 in 2020 who want to explore their future in Business. This exciting program is a collaboration between UNSW Business School and industry partners to equip young females with the skills, desire and ambition to study and work in the disciplines of Risk & Actuarial, Technology & Information Systems, and Banking & Finance. This opportunity will give students the chance to network with other likeminded high school students from across NSW, gain an in-depth understanding of these fields and learn from inspiring female role models, while also exploring what life as a UNSW Business School student could be like.

If you are a female student in years 10, 11 or 12 in 2020 and are keen to explore these disciplines, this program is for you!

The digital camp will be held online from Tuesday 6th October and Wednesday 7th October 2020.
