During your study Bachelor Double Degree Economics and Philosophy
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.
Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR)
The Economic Faculty association Rotterdam (EFR), established in 1963 is one of the largest and most active faculty associations in the Netherlands. The EFR unites students of the Erasmus School of Economics and connects theory with practice. The EFR communicates, amongst others, via their own magazine Eclaire, which is published seven times a year and is sent to six thousands students and contacts.
Especially for first year students the EFR organizes an introduction weekend, book sales, excursions and company visits. Other large-scale events that the EFR organizes are:
- the annual Business Week
- exchange with other European associations
- introductory meetings with potential employers
- a big political debate, during election years in the Netherlands
- annual edition of the Economic Faculty Almanac.
