MUTIS Finance Society is the largest business and finance society at the University of Manchester. We help members start and advance their careers in finance by organizing events where they can improve their knowledge and meet industry professionals.
From its relatively recent conception, Manchester University Trading and Investment Society has quickly managed to establish itself as one of the largest societies at the University of Manchester with 2018/19 membership reaching a level in excess of 5000.
Due to the society’s focus on careers, MUTIS has been able to actively assist its members in securing highly competitive summer internships at pre-eminent financial institutions – an opportunity which has then led to many students being offered full time graduate positions.
One of our core aims is to improve and advance our members’ career prospects. We pursue this objective both on an internal basis, by leveraging the experience of our senior members and alumni, and by working closely with Manchester Careers Service. This is complemented by workshops run by industry leaders focusing on application advice, CVs and interview skills.
