The Experience - Business Battle

The Experience is a multi-day event with company orientated cases in which 20 selected econometrics and actuarial science students try to distinguish themselves in their analytical skills, motivation and social skills. Also, the in-house approach offers a great opportunity to discover how it is to work at several interesting companies.

During the surprising and challenging cases, different aspects of the profession will be addressed. You can think of a conversation with a client, a downfall of the stock exchange, negotiations and strict deadlines. Whilst having lunch or a drink, there is the opportunity to get in touch with the companies in an informal way.

The best performing participants of the event will win great prizes! During the edition of 2018 participants have the possibility to win Sony headphones, an iPad and a Macbook Air! During this year's edition all 4 participating companies will represent a different sector. See the subpages for more information about the participating companies:
