ASCS - Association of Students of Commercial Studies
The Association of Students of Commercial Studies (ASCS) is a student, faculty-based, non-profit organization representing around 1,800 students from the Faculty of Economics, Management and Accountancy (FEMA).
The main aim of the association is to bridge the gap between the students and the faculty, as well as give a voice to FEMA students and try to ease the transition of students from their studies to the working world. ASCS aims to make the students’ overall university life a memorable one.
The executive is elected through an Annual General Meeting and in the case that certain roles are contested, FEMA students elect their representatives through an election.
ASCS aims to make it easy for freshers to integrate into university. This is done through an orientation meeting, first year drinks and the sought after live-in where students have an opportunity to become more familiar with their course, the executive, and the work that we do.
ASCS is well-known for the annual Business Trip abroad and the annual graduation ball “Il Ballo dei Signori”. Furthermore ASCS collaborates with KSU on events such as the Financial Workshops whereby all student organisations can benefit from. ASCS also hosts social events like the International Pubcrawl as well as information sessions focusing on the academic aspect.
ASCS also launch a number of initiatives such as the ThinkBIG conference as well as Major Talks. ASCS aims to continue working on more conferences for the benefit of FEMA and other students. This is especially so as ASCS is planning to focus on the industry, policy, and the international aspect this year.
All these events are an opportunity to strengthen the link between the members of the association and the executive but even as importantly to collaborate with other student organisations.
