WHAT IS BUSCOM?
As Fergie once sang, “A little party never killed nobody.” And we agree! BusCom parties have never killed anyone (phew!). In fact, attending one of BusCom’s Insta-worthy social events is the most fun you’ll ever have at uni. Our vineyard day trips and wild nightclub shenanigans are envied by every other association on campus. Trust us, we know how to party.
Skills and Experience
We’re all about helping our members pack their résumés with the skills and experiences employers are looking for so they’re job ready and prepped to take on the world. That’s why we hold regular skill-building workshops and seminars that often feature highly successful graduates, and it’s also why we’re always on the look out for career opportunities and work experience for members.
Professional events are BusCom’s bread and butter. We put our members in front of key industry professionals. Sure, networking your digital socks off on LinkedIn is great and all but networking your REAL LIFE socks off at a BusCom event is where the magic happens. We provide tonnes of opportunities for our members to meet high-profile professionals and grow their network.
We’re not just hungry to win in the business arena, we’re just as competitive when it comes to our sport. BusCom members take pride in the association by throwing on red, white and black and competing in netball, touch footy and soccer.
Nestled in a secret underground lair, accessible only by a secret passage way disguised as a bookcase in the university library, lies the BusCom HQ. It is here that the university association’s nine board members (informally known amongst themselves as the 'Notable Nine’) sit in their leather swivel chairs, stroking their hairless cats as they conjure up new and exciting benefits for the members of their world-renowned association.
While few know of the happenings behind the doors of the BusCom HQ, the value that it provides to members is revered all over the world. Thousands have flocked to its wild and wonderful social events dressed to the nines, friendship circle in tow (and taken advantage of member only discounts). Countless have thrived thanks to the association’s strong ties with industry professionals and the networking events they hold regularly. And year after year, budding young students at the University of Newcastle are able to pack their résumés with new skills and experiences thanks to BusCom’s enigmatic ability to constantly pump out new opportunities for its members.
MEET THE BOARD

I’ve just left BusCom HQ and I am pleased to report that good things are happening! For starters, the Women In Business Breakfast is this Friday! We’re so excited we may vomit…but we won’t, don’t worry. Anyway, in case you’ve somehow missed the 8,000 posts about the event that we’ve shared on social media (maybe[…]
What is the BusCom Bulletin, I hear you ask? Well it’s our Association’s new monthly email newsletter (which we’ll also post here on our blog) that is jam-packed with all of the BusCom info you could possibly need! Each month I’ll meet with the rest of the board members at our secret BusCom HQ, accessible via[…]
