April was the month of the Economic Business Weeks Tilburg (EBT). Students had the chance to develop themselves and to meet recruiters and other staff from the several companies participating in events during the company days.
At the weekend of February 27th –March 1st , one of the highlights of the academic year took place for the active members of Asset | Economics: the Active Members Weekend (AMW), organized by the Activities Committee. It goes without saying that this weekend was full of partying, fun activities and alcohol, but also of little sleep, bad music, hangovers and fat food. Despite that, everybody had a great time and that’s why the weekend deserves a review.
From January 22nd until January 23rd, nearly all students of the seminar Financial Economics, given by prof. dr. Sylvester Eijffinger, joined the Asset | Economics Frankfurt Excursion. During this trip, the students visit two major financial institutions, namely Deutsche Bank, one of the biggest in the world and headquartered in Frankfurt, and the European Central Bank. After having followed this tough seminar, this trip is a welcome reward for these students.
On the 22nd of October, the first ACOM activity took place. The activities committee hosted its first event of the year, a cycling dinner for our active members. The theme of the night was ‘Food and Drinks around the World’.
November 11 is a special date in the provinces Noord-Brabant and Limburg, as the famous party “Carnaval” starts from that point onwards. The actual festivities are in February, but in November the protagonist of the party, the prince, of Carnival will be chosen. As we live in Kruikenstad and we like to have a little party once in a while, the Promo Committee of Asset | Economics organized a beer cantus, themed Carnival.
During the academic year 2014-2015 Asset | Economics, in corporation with Asset | International Business & Management and Complex, organized a symposium. The event took place on September 25 at Tilburg University. The theme of the event was herd behavior in economics and hosted several speakers that elaborated on this psychological phenomenon.
