Get an Edge

The future of business is tech. 

It’s hard to imagine a company that doesn’t rely on technology, which is why tech skills are essential for any business career today. And the business landscape of tomorrow is being shaped by new, groundbreaking industries that use technology to innovate and move toward the future.

We know that the students of Leeds today will be the future changemakers, CEOs and business leaders of tomorrow. Business + Engineering Women in Tech (BEWiT) is a selective, two-year program that brings together top undergraduate business and engineering students interested in the intersection of business and technology—providing collaborative opportunities to develop highly sought-after interdisciplinary skills.

You’ll receive enrichment through specialized workshops, mentorships, career treks and action-based learning opportunities. BEWiT includes a one-credit seminar in which you’ll learn from and network with women in business and tech.

Applications are now closed for Fall 2024 with the program at capacity. Please contact Virginia Benson ( with any questions regarding future opportunities to join the BEWiT program. 


BEWiT helped me form connections with women from key companies, so I could develop an informed outlook of what real industry is like, and how I could see myself fitting into that space." Taylor Bata
