UBS Young Women's Leadership Academy

UBS offers a fully covered, week long Leadership program for young women in Year 11. The program is residential and participants stay at Women’s College at the University of Sydney. The New South Wales Secondary Principals’ Council has supported the program since its inception.

Aims of the Academy are to:
 
•  make leadership possible for young women
•  introduce year 11 students to a diverse group of contemporary women leaders 
•  provide some assistance in helping young women dream beyond their experience 
•  demonstrate the possibilities and satisfaction of a career in business 
•  encourage leadership aspirations in young women 
•  provide leadership skills development.

UBS works in conjunction with Women’s College, Sydney University and the NSW Secondary Schools Association to give 50 (female) students from public high schools in ACT, NSW and VIC the chance to explore the possibilities and satisfaction of further education and perhaps a career in business. The objective of the Academy is to provide leadership skills to recognized emerging and potential women leaders in the school and community.

The students are introduced to a diverse group of contemporary women leaders and provide them with assistance to help them look beyond their experience. We hope to encourage leadership aspirations in young women and to provide some leadership skills development.

Public High School Principals receive application details for the Academy at the beginning of Term 1.

UBS Finance Academy

The annual UBS Finance Academy program has been created around the theme of finance with the objective of providing leadership in banking education with a particular focus on senior secondary school students. It introduces students to a wide range of career opportunities in banking.

Fifty Year 11 students are selected each year from a broadly based cross section of public schools in NSW, ACT and Victoria. There is an expressed interest in providing an opportunity to students who have limited visions of careers in banking perhaps for reasons of no family background in this area, no awareness in the education system and no friends or role models to turn to.

We look for the best and brightest Year 11 students from the public school sector and while the focus is on investment banking, there are opportunities to meet interesting and inspirational people and visit special places in Sydney. The Academy offers students a chance to explore a previously unknown career opportunity and develop new relationships with their peer group members from other schools. An ideal outcome would be that students return to their final year of study with an intellectual and social advantage and an interest in pursuing a career in the world of banking.

The program is residential and participants stay at Dunmore Lang College, Macquarie University. General costs are covered by UBS.

Public High School Principals receive application details for the Academy in Term 2.
 

UBS HSC Economics Day

UBS holds a HSC economics day for all educational professionals and students studying Year 12 economics in NSW each year. It is held at the Wesley Conference Centre in Sydney and is free of charge to participants.

This one day event focuses on key topics in the HSC Curriculum, touching on the outlook, challenges and opportunities facing the Australian and global economies.

Past speakers include:

Scott Haslem, Chief Economist, UBS Australasia
Dr Marion Kohler, Deputy Head Economic Analysis, Reserve Bank of Australia
Andrew Lilley, Interest Rate Strategist, UBS Australasia
Ross Gittins, Economics Editor, Sydney Morning Herald
Tim Riley, Director of Economics Literacy Centre

All NSW schools receive an email invitation early in the year direct from UBS. Places fill up quickly and numbers are limited, so early registration is essential.
