Often, I got questions like: ‘What is it like to be the chairman of Asset | Economics?’ or ‘What does the chairman of Asset | Economics do on a daily base?’. In this article, I will give you more insight in what it is like to be the chairman of Asset | Economics. I will briefly introduce myself before moving on. My name is Peter, I’m 24 years old and already active at Asset | Economics for 4 years now. I have obtained a bachelor degree in Economics and Business Economics, and a master degree in Finance. I have always looked for opportunities to develop myself besides my studies, and that is one of the reasons I have chosen to do a board year. While reading this article, you hopefully get some more insight in what a board year, and especially the position as chairman, brings for me.
“Being part of two boards at the same time can be complicated sometimes, but above all it gives various opportunities to excel and it is lots of fun!”
Let’s start with asking the honest question to yourself: Do you know what the chairman of Asset | Economics or a chairman of a study association in general does on a daily base? I guess most of you do answer this question with a solid ‘no’. I have to admit, before this year I also did not have an exact idea of what it would be like. First of all, it is good to know that the chairman of an Asset department does approximately devotes half of his or her time to tasks for Asset general. For this reason I would like to take you with me in my experiences as chairman of Asset | Economics at one side, and board member of Asset general at the other side. Being part of two boards at the same time can be complicated sometimes, but above all it gives various opportunities to excel and it is lots of fun!
