Why get involved in Enterprise? 

There are lots of opportunities at Southampton to meet new people, develop personal and professional skills and gain experiences to impress on job applications. Participating in clubs, societies and volunteering are just a few options beyond your degree.

Getting involved in our Enterprise activities will do all the above whilst giving you the opportunity to develop 5 key Enterprise skills:

• Creativity- An innovative perspective that looks beyond the obvious
• Negotiating- Working with others to deliver mutually beneficial conclusions
• Problem Solving- Turning problems and challenges into solutions and opportunities
• Decision Making- Comprehending risk and reward under pressure then acting upon it
• Commercial Awareness- Understanding business needs and challenges

Enterprise is an extra-curricular opportunity that connects you with inspiring people on exciting projects. Read on for details on all the ways to get involved as well as our selection of current opportunities some of which can be viewed on the Events Calendar.
