FAWA - Finance Association of Western Australia

Organised by:
Finance Association of Western Australia

The Finance Association of Western Australia (FAWA) is recruiting for the 2016 committee. This is a fantastic opportunity for enthusiastic students to become an integral part of a very exciting and rapidly growing student organisation.

As an independent student body, FAWA aims to enable UWA students from a multitude of disciplines to engage, develop and express their interest in finance and business outside the boundaries of the formal university curriculum. FAWA provides a conduit through which motivated students can further advance their passion for commerce whilst developing the requisite core skills for their future careers as young professionals in the business arena.

We do so by hosting a range of events, including opportunities to network with industry professionals at our annual Business Breakfast and Women’s Corporate Cocktail, competitions that allow students to gain insight into working in particular industries while vying for some amazing prizes, workshops which bridge the gap between theory and practice, as well as a number of social events which allow the creation of students’ increasingly important student network.

- Gain exposure to our growing range of sponsors and business partners, and get yourself ahead of your peers when looking for graduate positions
