LA TROBE COMMERCE STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION (CSA)
The official commerce association for students at La Trobe University, Bundoora.
ABOUT THE CSA
The La Trobe University Commerce Students’ Association is the official faculty based organisation designed for students studying a commerce related degree. The Commerce Students’ Association caters for students which fall under the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Commerce and the La Trobe Business School – inclusive of the Department of Accounting, Department of Management/Marketing and the Department of Economics/Finance.
Through building positive relationships within various industries, the Association aims to expose students to the workforce and bridge the gap between tertiary studies and formal employment. The Association sets out to achieve this purpose by organising events which allow students to network, create their personal brand and build a competitive advantage.
Importantly, the Association also seeks to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of students during their time at the university. The Association provides students with a number of opportunities to meet and socialise in a number of organised activities with their fellow peers.
MEET YOUR TEAM
Welcome to the La Trobe Commerce Students’ Association (CSA)! We, Bethany and Sabrina, are your Co-Presidents of the CSA this year. We are privileged to have this role and are thrilled to be able to represent our students’ needs and help you in any way we can. In the coming years, we would like to see the CSA grow to be an even larger community with more students and employers getting involved and interacting with each other.
It is our mission – to provide students with the opportunity to network, create their personal brand, and build a competitive advantage whilst completing their tertiary education.
It is our vision – to create a cohesive environment for employers and students to meet and work together, allowing for a smooth transition into the professional work place.
We highly recommend attending our events to learn new skills, meet new people and HAVE FUN. We hope to see you at our events soon, check them out below!
