As the board of the VSAE you are responsible for the entire association for a year. It is important to formulate a policy outline at the beginning, which can be executed throughout the rest of the year. This includes determining the direction of the association and making important decisions. Moreover, the board acts as the day-to-day management to the association and oversees the organisation of the events and activities the VSAE offers. Everything we stand for is encompassed by our five pillars: Career, Social, Study, Analytics Academy and Mental Health.
