BRAC University Business Club (BIZ BEE) offers its members a platform to develop their interactive skills and learn true leadership qualities while simultaneously building a network with industry professionals and reputed minds. With its new vision of 'Empowering People with Inspirational Leadership,' the club is working towards grooming their members as the future leaders.
The club comprises members from diverse backgrounds working to enhance BIZ BEE's potential and dynamic, encouraging students to bring change in the business world through their knowledge.
"BIZ BEE wants to step in and connect students with people from diversified cultures and backgrounds so that they can learn from each other and feel empowered," said Syed Sadat Hasan, president of BIZ BEE."Eventually, they will explore the routes towards success, and be the glory for Bangladesh."
Along with the focus on skill enhancement, BIZ BEE hosts an array of events throughout the academic year. The club especially focuses on inter-university ventures - one of the significant events include the club's flagship competition titled 'Casessination,' a business competition designed to challenge participants to wield their full potential, as well as their critical and creative abilities. BIZ BEE was also the host of the HSBC-BRAC Business School Business Competition in 2021.
Apart from this, the club also publishes an annual business magazine titled 'Vision', a publication aiming to address contemporary business topics and provide reverting insights into the industry. BIZ BEE also regularly organises skill oriented series such as 'IGNITE', and social responsibility initiatives such as the annual blood donation camp in partnership with the Bangladesh Thalassemia Foundation. The club expresses gratitude towards various corporate companies such as Unilever, Nestle, Marico, HSBC, bKash, Walton, Banglalink, Reckitt, Ispahani, Arla Foods, Daraz, and Teach for Bangladesh for their assistance.
"Over the 18 years of BRAC University Business Club (BIZ BEE), the club has arranged some incredible events ranging from business skill enhancing programmes to business competitions in intra-university and inter-university scales within the nation. The club is now preparing itself to organise international levels of competitions, and that day is not so far away," said an optimistic Ummul Wara Adrita, club advisor of BIZ BEE and lecturer, Brac Business School.
In the future, BIZ BEE intends to partner with corporate companies to allow its members to build their hard skills and gain diversified experiences. The club also wants to expand its global presence and build stronger relationships with international clubs and youth organisations. Finally, the club also aims to create a more engaging environment by including all of BRAC University's students at large, supporting them and bridging the modern gaps concerning corporate life and technology.
