During the Econometric Career Days, there is plenty of opportunity to meet companies that work in one of the various fields of econometrics. There are all sort of activities providing you with a chance to get in touch with a selection of leading companies.
The events during which you can meet potential employers are the following:
A case is a perfect way to learn about a company’s work field and their company culture. You get to work on a representative company case thereby allowing you to learn more about the company and to apply your analytical skills to tackle a problem. Afterwards there is either a lunch or drink included in a morning or afternoon case respectively, where you get to talk to the employees and ask all your questions. Find out here which cases are planned during the ECD 2023.
During a presentation at the ECD, a company will describe their daily practices at their company to you. They will talk to you about interesting projects that they have worked on or are currently working on and explain the career opportunities. Find out here which presentations are planned during the ECD 2023.

This year we have one company dinner and two branch dinners - a Finance dinner and a Consultancy dinner. The Finance dinner hosts EY, NN Group and Van Lanschot Kempen. The Consultancy dinner hosts Deloitte, M3 Consultancy and Simon Kucher & Partners. The company dinner is with ORTEC.

- Informal Events
This year we organise a variety of fun informal events where you get to meet companies through social activities in an informal setting in order to see if you are character wise a good fit for the company and whether their atmosphere matches yours. The informal activities this year consist of a beer tasting with Milliman, jeu de boules with SKIM, a lunch with Chipsoft, a lunch with Achmea and a Drink with a few scale-ups. It is a unique experience for you to have fun while networking and have the opportunity to get to know a company. Find out here which informal events are planned during the ECD 2023.
- Field Trip
The field trip takes place at the ASML corporate headquarters in Veldhoven. A bus will take you from Eindhoven Centraal to ASML afterwhich you will enjoy a nice lunch. Following the lunch, you get a tour in the ASML Experience Center. In the Experience Center, you can discover the world of ASML and wear the famous “cleanroom outfits.” This will be followed by a presentation and question session where you will learn more about ASML, and you will get the chance to hear from various Econometrists that work at ASML in their many branches. Then you will get a chance to view the remainder of the campus with a campus tour in small groups. The day will end with drinks and informal conversations with ASML employees. A bus will take you then back Eindhoven Centraal. Find out here which presentations are planned during the ECD 2023.

- Freshmen Inhouse Day
The Freshmen Inhouse Day is an event specifically organised for first year students. Let your studies come to life and join us to meet Nationale Nederlanden in one of the highest buildings in Rotterdam: the Delfste Poort. As one of the largest insurance and asset management companies in the Netherlands, NN is a great employer for many econometricians.
During the Econometric Career Days, there are certain events that are held in Dutch. This is the request of the company as they either only hire Dutch nationals or Dutch speaking employees. Therefore, the event is held in Dutch to attend to this fact. For Dutch events it will be clearly stated in the description that they will be held in Dutch. If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to email@example.com.
