The Graduate Enterprise Student Fair 2013 has been organised by EMU Events Management

Final year students taking the Graduate Enterprise module offered by the Business School will be showcasing their business ventures in Chapman Hall, Southlands on Friday 1 March 2013. Students taking the module - which is offered to year 3 business, computing and dance students - set up and ran a business serving the student and local community. The results of their enterprise will be presented at the Graduate Enterprise Student Fair, which will take place in Chapman Hall between 2.30pm – 5pm.

This year has seen students set up a wide-range of companies, which have included businesses specialising in event management, real estate, party catering, fashion retailing, computing and web design. The businesses will be showcased, with awards being presented on the day by local dignitaries, including the Mayor of Wandsworth, for the three businesses adjudged to be the most promising.


The fair has been organised by EMU – one of the businesses set up by this year’s Graduate Enterprise students. As well as stands fronted by the business creators, there will be a fashion show hosted by Vintage Fashions, another business formed this year. Course organiser Daljit King said: “the students on this module are encouraged to be creative and entrepreneurial, taking their ideas and turning them into a successful business. This year has seen some really innovative businesses launched with a good degree of success. The Fair allows the students to share their experiences with the student and local business communities, obtain some useful feedback and hopefully inspire other students to put their ideas into action.”

The Graduate Enterprise Fair is open to all: Friday 1 March. Chapman Hall, Southlands. 2.30pm – 5pm.
