Enterprise Thursdays are fun and free events open to staff, students, alumni, and members of the local business community. They take place in the BSMS Medical School on campus (with registration taking place between 5.30pm - 6pm).

The evening events begin with a talk by an inspirational person from the world of business, charity or social enterprise. Each Enterprise Thursday concentrates upon a particular theme, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions throughout, to make the event as interactive as possible. The talk is followed by the chance to chat to and get to know the other students, and staff and the chance to talk to the speaker on a more informal level. Enterprise Thursdays attract a wide range of interest and all that attend are warmly welcomed.

Local family firms Harvey & Sons Brewery and Forfars Bakeries are keen supporters of Enterprise Thursdays, providing delicious, free refreshments after the presentations.
