BBC: Where you put knowledge learned at uni into practice
Article by Evelin Steyer and Beáta Bodnár.
Budapest Business Club is one of the most active student organizations of the University of Corvinus with almost 140 members who are beginning to build their professional careers and lay the foundations for their future.
Club members are able to get acquainted with three specializations: marketing, HR, and sales. Professional development is guaranteed as students get to know themselves, broaden their horizons and build new relationships.
The experience that can be gained and the wide range of community programs are also great reasons to join the organization. The members can forge lifelong friendships through the years spent in BBC.
Members in the marketing specialization are tasked with organizing unique, quality events, as well as broadening the horizons of the students and complementing university knowledge with current, interesting topics.
The focus of here is on planning, implementing, promoting and organizing these events. Besides event management, the members can also develop a creative mindset, as well as master their online and offline marketing skills.
In the HR specialization, the focus is on coordinating the recruitment and selection processes for the entire club, from its appearance at the freshman camp, through interviewing and the organization of the Involvement/Integration Camp.
HR is also responsible for maintaining the internal motivation of the membership by organizing regular community programs, parties, camps and coordinating the Mentoring Program. BBC is committed to training and supporting its talents to prepare them for their future careers, which is assisted by the four-semester Talent Program. HR plays a major role in organizing and managing this program.
The sales specialization is in charge of developing and operating the BBC’s corporate partnerships. Members of this unit are also responsible for all sponsorship collaboration, as well as for financial processes between the student organization and the corporate sector. The sales team members strive to establish long-term collaborations with the partners, during which they build an extensive network of contacts at both organizational and individual levels.
We have long-term cooperation with many large companies, such as Diageo, Vodafone and Unilever, to whom, besides our reliability, we offer a high-quality collaboration process and an efficient direct channel to reach students. Our partnerships are based on two main keystones: branding and employer branding.
Our various self-organized recitations are also worth mentioning, which reach out to hundreds of students, as we make these available on both offline and online platforms. Well-known performers, such as Zsuzsi Berta and Attila Bognár, the marketer and manager of the A38 ship, and the gastro blogger Zé Fördős have already attended our events.
Budapest Business Club has managed to build a relationship with the students of Corvinus based on trust, resulting in an extremely high reach both offline and online and an ever-expanding number of long-term collaborations.
Our organization plays a huge role in shaping future ideas and launching the careers of fellow students. The talent program helps our members acquire competencies that would be an advantage later in professional life and it leads them to build a successful career.
