One of the character traits that define Rotterdam students is their high level of activity and that they are not afraid to work hard. They are actively involved in all sorts of consulting associations and often have on the side jobs as student assistants to professors or in the administrative division of the faculty. Their contribution keeps the faculty on their toes and allows them to incorporate the students’ opinions.
The character of the students is also represented in the presence of the active faculty and study associations.
FAECTOR is the school association for aspiring econometricians at Erasmus School of Economics. Since 1966, FAECTOR has been offering large, varied projects and events for Econometrics students in the Netherlands. At this moment, FAECTOR is the biggest study association for Econometrics students in the world! We organise over ten career events per year, besides various other social and educational events and activities.
Before the start of the academic year, FAECTOR normally organises the introduction camps for first-year Econometrics students and students following the Bachelor Squared program. This year however, FAECTOR organises a warming-up program for first-year students in cooperation with Erasmus School of Economics. Here you will get to know fellow Econometrics students, the university and the city of Rotterdam.
Some examples of other activities that FAECTOR organises:
- FAECTOR Research Project (for example in Brazil, Canada, South Korea, Singapore and Tokyo)
- The Econometric Career Days, the biggest on-campus career event for econometricians in the Netherlands
- Financial Market Tour (a visit to London to get to know how it feels to be an investment banker)
- Smaller events such as social drinks, city trips, inhouse days and a discount on study books
