About EBT

The Economic Business weeks Tilburg
The Economic Business weeks TIlburg (EBT) is a project of Faculty Association Asset in cooperation with Tilburg University. The event is a unique opportunity for students to orientate themselves on their future career, realizing an internship or get more information about their future employers.

Who can participate in the EBT?
All students studying at Tilburg University are welcome to participate in the EBT. Although the EBT is mainly aimed at students of the faculty of Economics and Management, the first week includes trainings that are also interesting for non-economic students. To make sure international students can participate in the event as well, some companies offer their activities in English. Furthermore, we offer an International Track during our Training Day, specifically for international students. Finally, students from other universities are welcome to participate too!

What does the EBT 2018 offer you? 
The Business Night is the modern, fresh and entertaining successor of the Asset Conference. The event will take place in the evening of April 3 and serves as the grand opening of the Economic Business weeks Tilburg. It aims at broadening students’ vision by sharing inspiring stories.

Due to the big success of last year, the Economic Business weeks Tilburg will again provide the CV & LinkedIn Checks on April 4. During this day, experts will provide feedback on your CV and LinkedIn profile. As both are increasingly essential these days, it is of utmost importance to make sure the content is relevant and complete.

By participating in the Training Day in the Willem II Conference Center on April 9, you will be able to develop your personal skills as well prepare for a job application. In the morning personal development is the central focus. You can follow sessions with topics like presenting, communicating and networking. The afternoon sessions, on the other hand, are focused on different assessment trainings. Professionals will guide you through the process of an assessment and will show how important issues can be tackled. Besides the regular Dutch Track, the EBT offers a special International Track. We invite international students to increase their knowledge on what it is like to stay and work in the Netherlands in the future.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, April 10 and 11, the Consultancy Orientation Days will take place. Are you interested in consultancy and want to experience what it is like to be a consultant? Or do you want to get in touch with a specific large consultancy firm? The Consultancy Orientation Day offers you the opportunity to get to know several big consultancy firms and to show them your skills and competences.

On April 12, 13, 16, 17 and 18, the Company Days take place. By attending Company Presentations and Speed Dates, companies can give you a first impression of their activities. Workshops offer you the possibility to impress the company while applying your knowledge to a business case. Furthermore, a company can get to know you more thoroughly via Individual Conversations, and vice versa. Finally, there is the opportunity to get to know a company better during a delicious Business Lunch. In short: the Company Days offer every kind of contact with the companies of your interest!

On April 19, the Case Day will be organized where a real life case is presented. In this way you get the opportunity to show your motivation and skills. The day starts with a Business Lunch and will be followed by an extensive case.
