Eurekaweek Masterdag

Challenge yourself during our Master day!

The Eurekaweek is a great way to get to know the city, student life and the university in a fun and informal way. During the week, you will discover everything Erasmus University Rotterdam has to offer to their students. This means that the week is not only great for Bachelor students, but it is also very valuable to Pre-Master and Master students. In order to provide these students with a little extra, the Eurekaweek Board organises a Master day. This day includes key notes from inspirational speakers and workshops from well-known businesses, who will address different sides of a career in Rotterdam. This day will be the perfect way to challenge yourself during the week and start orienting on the possibilities in Rotterdam after your studies. 

This year, the Master day will also be open to student who are not participating in the Eurekaweek, as we also want to provide EUR students with the opportunity to explore their career opportunities in this beautiful city. For participants of the Eurekaweek, the Masterday is a free event. For people who are not participating in the Eurekaweek, the Masterday is only 10 euros.

Opening and lunch

The day starts with a general session, in which three inspirational speakers from different industries will talk about what it is like to start a career in Rotterdam. They will briefly discuss their current positions and the challenges they encountered. After this session, a big lunch is organised, during which it is possible to talk to recruiters from different companies, while enjoying a nice sandwich. 


After lunch, multiple workshops are organised. The workshops will require a more proactive stance from the students together with the parties that organise these workshops. It will be an educational and challenging afternoon. In this round, you get to choose a workshop that you prefer to attend. There are multiple options:

  • Corps Mariniers - Mission Command (15 spots)

The Mission Command workshop explains clear and simple how to execute a mission. It is the military way to deliver success by absolute mission clarity, maximum ownership and an optimal team alignment. Not only military teams are using “mission command” but also companies like Grohe, Bacardi and Wal Mart. But also in sports like the Dutch National Hockey team are using it!

  • Tom Marshall - Pursuing your passions (30 spots)

People tell us that we should choose work that we love, but how can we find this out? And once we discover this, what tangible steps can we take to make this a reality? Extraordinary Life presents: Pursuing Your Passions

Through the special combination of continuous reflection and life experimentation, we will ignite you to begin an exciting journey of self-discovery. You will learn how to identify your passions and gain the confidence to release your chains and pursue them!

  • Albert Heijn -  Inspirational Leadership (40 spots)

Do you want to discover whatever you need to be an inspirational leader? And what you should do to inspire more than 100 employees and to achieve your goals? Do you want to know what the supply chain of a large retailer looks like? During this workshop, a manager of Albert Heijn will take you through a part of the leadership programme and will help you discover your talents. 

Please note: this workshop is only for Dutch-speaking students. 

  • Gemeente Rotterdam - Personal Branding and the Coolsingel Game (30 spots)

You are almost graduating, you have learned everything about theories and models. However, the question "what are your talents?" is very difficult to answer. But what is talent and how can you discover your talents? During this 'personal branding' workshop, we help you answer these questions. Afterwards, you will play the 'Coolsingel Game'; a game that is not about winning, but about uniting different interests, such as individual, organisational and team interests. How can you connect them all?

Please note: this workshop is only for Dutch-speaking students. 

  • Solve - Consultancy in practice (20 spots)

Does the world of consultancy seem interesting to you? Solve brings consultancy to students, aiming to increase the social impact of many companies. During this workshop, you will learn more about the art of consultancy, while working on a practical case. The perfect way to get to know Solve and consultancy!


After the workshops, a social drink is organised. During this drink, you can have a drink and talk to the different organisations, as well as the study associations.
