Each year in November, the BMS students elect a new team of BMS Student Representatives for one year. We are delighted to announce this year’s new team: Sophia Bugarija, Apratim Choudhury, Fawzy Hegab, Lea Strubberg and Bálint Zsigri.
The new team will start their term in December, while the recent BMS Student Representatives - Gerard, Saraí, Owen, Duc, Nicolas and Berk - are busy organizing the BMS Student Conference 2024 (to take place on 21 - 23 February 2024).
In general, the BMS Student Representatives have two main tasks: They serve as a contact between the BMS students and the BMS administration and help BMS students to connect with each other.
In addition, they represent the BMS students on various official committees and can voice students' concerns and suggestions there. The representatives try to notice needs and also organize an annual survey to find out about the issues and concerns of the BMS students.
To help BMS students get to know each other and provide opportunities for networking, they offer a wide range of activities like
• organizing social events,
• running a peer-mentoring program,
• connecting new students with those of similar academic interests,
• organizing a Career Day with BMS alumni once a year
At the end of the winter semester, the team is also in charge of organizing the annual BMS Student Conference, right after the BMS Days.
