The Master Study Board SABERxEFR is responsible for serving all Behavioural Economics students. After the fuse of the two study associations SABER and EFR, the SABERxEFR Master Study Board has made it its mission to offer Behavioural Economics students everything they do not learn in a regular classroom. Every year, a group of students that are enrolled in Behavioural Economics themselves organise various events that help students develop themselves, orientate on different sectors and build their network. Through various social, educational and career-related activities, the association is a meaningful addition for this group of students.

The social events are aimed at getting to know your fellow classmates and have a good time. Through educational events like guest lectures, we aim to widen your knowledge in your field. Finally, the career related events help you get acquainted with the field of business and get in contact with future employers

Perhaps the most inspiring event of last year, a perfectly organized trip to the PCBS2020 conference in Prague, had to be cancelled due to corona. This year however, the new Master Study Board will make sure to match or even top last year’s success. See you soon!
