Message from the President

Welcome to the University of Manchester PPE Society. PPE at Manchester is one of the largest and most diverse PPE courses offered in the UK and it is accompanied by a strong and active student society. We are known across campus for being one of the most sociable, ambitious and integrated courses throughout the university. 

Graduates of PPE from the University of Manchester are among the most elite graduates in the country. Alumni are routinely employed in some of the most prestigious positions across sectors- from high-level business executives to the civil service fast stream, and from lawyers to investment bankers. This makes clear that PPE at Manchester equips students with valuable and transferrable skills that see them through their professional lives, allowing them to realise suitably high ambitions. 

Throughout the year the PPE Society runs regular social events, from the Welcome Curry and the PPE Holiday to the End of Year Ball, as well as careers events and professionally-orientated talks featuring external speakers. Furthermore, as a Society we run a Peer Mentoring scheme to support first-year students with their academic lives as well as general queries about life away from home. This scheme has been student-led since its inception- it is important to us that each PPE student has someone to turn to should they need assistance, and we are proud to have developed such a strong peer-network to ensure that this is the case. We have also developed a strong corporate network over the last few years- we have previously had relationships with Allianz, Deloitte and Addleshaw Goddard, and this year we are proud to be sponsored by Allen & Overy LLP. I believe that these features of the Society demonstrate that PPE students go above and beyond- rather than just letting PPE be a degree that we study, we have turned it into a sociable, supportive and professionally sponsored community that defines the experience that PPE students have at university. 

As a final note, whether you are considering studying PPE at Manchester, considering sponsoring the Society or are joining us in September, the UoM PPE Society will not disappoint. 

Sam Sayer

President of the Society 2017/18
