The Otago Finance and Accounting Society (OFAS) is a strategic initiative stemming from the department of Accounting and Finance at the Otago Business School. OFAS exists to serve the student body of the University of Otago, by extending their knowledge and capabilities in the disciplines of Finance and Accounting, in a manner that further develops their in-class studies.
We are passionate about the fields of Finance and Accounting, and as the largest academia-based society at the University we are able to deliver on our promise “to develop the future generations of Kiwi Financiers, Bankers, and Accountants”.
In addition to its regular meetings, OFAS; hosts guest speakers, runs multiple case competitions throughout the year, and organises a number of social events to develop the depth of the society. All of this combines to facilitate our members development in a friendly and enriching atmosphere.
Serving on the OFAS Executive Committee is a way for ambitious students to bolster their CV, whilst simultaneously developing leadership and organisational skills. OFAS is open to all Otago students regardless of major or degree, it aims to appeal to anyone with an interest in finance, accounting, and business.
