Welcome to the University of Newcastle Business and Commerce Association!

UoN BusCom is a growing not-for-profit student association with over 400 members and 20 corporate and local partnerships. An integral part of the university and broader Newcastle business community, BusCom enhances the student experience by delivering opportunities for academic, career and personal development. This is achieved by connecting students with industry, across professional, sporting and social communications and events. The BusCom Board is comprised of fourteen individuals of domestic and international backgrounds, currently studying a range of disciplines within the Faculty of Business and Law. This incredible team works hard to bring valuable opportunities to life for our members and ensures as an Association, we succeed in enhancing students’ university experience by creating long lasting friendships among members, and fostering professional networks and partnerships. 

Our members – the University of Newcastle Business and Commerce Association – and the Board are extraordinary students, whose excellence is shaping the future success of the region and beyond. Able to divulge in highly technical conversations (usually over a few drinks), we are approachable, relatable and forward-thinking, and continue to collaborate with future industry and thought leaders. We’re always happy to hear new ideas or fresh insights, so please reach out!

Take some time to look around our website where you’ll find who we are, what we do, some upcoming and past events, and how you can become a member

We're just as competitive on the field. Members proudly represent the Association by throwing on red, white and black in fun competitions including mixed netball, touch football and 7-a-side soccer. Don’t forget the annual Interfaculty Sports Day!
