Introduction

Welcome to the School of Business and Management (SBM), Queen Mary University of London.  We look forward to you becoming part of the SBM family.  To get you started we have organized a series of events and talks by academics, students, staff and alumni to help you on your way in this new term and thereafter.  Information will be added to this webpage so please visit this webpage regularly for updates to your welcome week schedule.  We wish you a successful welcome week, first term and enjoy the academic year!

 

Welcome Week Schedules 

New students your welcome week schedule will run from Monday 18th September 2017 to Friday 22nd September 2017.  Your personal welcome week itinerary can be found below.  Please click on your subject degree link for the daily detailed information. 

 

 

If you are studying a SBM joint degree programme you can obtain your welcome week schedule from the School which is your major subject.  However, here is a copy of the School of Business and Management Joint Honours Schedule [PDF 1,353KB]

In your personal welcome week itinerary the compulsory events are highlighted in blue.  Any talks with an astricks* next to it means it is a repeat talk but you must attend the relevant talk according to the first letter of your surname.  Optional or elective events are in orange. Anything underlined contains a hyperlink to the relevant booking page.  

We run it this way to make sure that you get all the essential information you need and have the option to find out more about the things that interest you. Make sure you sign up for anything that you are curious about – this is part of being a university student: if you don’t make it happen, nothing will happen... The student-run sessions are highly recommended – you want to learn from those who have been there before!

 

To orientate yourself around campus and find the locations of where your welcome week events etc are being held please see the Mile End Campus Map.  For information on your Student Union's events this week see here.
