Transitioning with the Times

Welcome to the 39th Annual UCC Commerce Conference. Since the conference was established in 1982, the event has evolved to become one of the most prestigious business conferences in Ireland. It is one of the events that the UCC Commerce Society is most proud of as it continuously bridges the gap between aspiring students and their business mentors, thus building relationships between both communities.

What Our Past Attendees Said

“Having attended four of the past Commerce Conferences, I can happily say it was one of the most beneficial events I engaged with over my time in UCC.
I left each Conference feeling motivated and driven to pursue my career goals and it also allowed me to network with many high profile individuals I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to meet. I would highly recommend attending the Commerce Conference as it will certainly help to broaden your career horizons and afford you many insights and valuable advice from industry leaders.”

Eva Doyle
Former UCC Student

"Having been to two UCC Commerce Society Conferences, I am really excited to attend my third one this year. With each new year, new topics are discussed and each speaker faces a new array of challenges. Each year I become more motivated and inspired to work to my full potential. I am really looking forward to this new modern and Commerce Conference." 

Isobel Carey
UCC Student

“I attended the Commerce Conference last year and I found it a really worthwhile and enjoyable day. Whether you are in first year or final year, it was a brilliant event to illustrate the different avenues and diverse opportunities one can explore in the business area. Hearing first hand, the trials and tribulations of gaining success in the business world is both exciting and inspiring. I would highly recommend attending the Commerce Conference this year - with the added advantage of course, of tuning in from the comfort of your own home!”

Aoife Cudden
UCC Student

“The Commerce Conference is an amazing opportunity for UCC students to be exposed to some of the most influential, forward-thinking and entrepreneurial minds in the country.  Every year the business leadership on display at the Commerce Conference helps to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs, and this year will be no different.”

Sophie O' Sullivan
Former UCCSU Ents Officer

“I think going into Commerce, things are a bit ambiguous. It is a broad course, you are touching on a multitude of business areas so it can be hard to know which area you feel passionately about. Listening to well-established people at the Commerce Conference helps you set out in a direction to a certain extent, there are some stories that appeal more to you. I liked hearing how businesses are set up, which in some ways is where I'd like to end up, working for start-ups.”

Rhona Geary
Former UCC Student

“Commerce gave me a taste for the different business avenues available for example, Accounting, Marketing and HR. The Commerce Conference displays how these disciplines can be put into practice. The panelists provide anecdotes and tips that they have learned on the job to help us further understand the industry. Many of the guest speakers have graduated from Commerce themselves, showing me how versatile the Commerce degree is. I highly recommend attending the Commerce Conference as it is an event that is engaging and provides a fresh outlook on the business world. Being proactive during a global pandemic will also stand out to employers. Leave off the banana bread making for this lockdown and attend the Commerce Conference instead.”
