Who We Are
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 2016/17 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. As a society which offers free membership MUTIS hopes to encourage a diverse membership base by welcoming students from all academic disciplines regardless of their prior market knowledge or experience. We seek to connect those who have not only a passion for the financial markets but also a strong commitment to aiding the understanding and broadening the knowledge of their fellow members.
What We Do
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.
In addition to weekly meetings we have a busy calendar of keynote speakers and university scholars who provide members with insightful views and opinions from within the financial industry and academia. In addition to external speakers senior society members are encouraged to aid the development of their peers through regular talks and presentations which outline the fundamentals of trading and investment.
