EBT 2021

To be optimally prepared for the EBT, the CV Checks & LinkedIn Checks are organized on February 23. 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. The experts will explain what you can improve to make sure your CV and LinkedIn page will stand out from the others.

The program officially starts with the Business Night, the prestigious grand opening of the EBT, in the evening of April 6. We will be welcoming Gerard Timmer (Managing Director NOS), Jaap Wassink (VP & Country Director Coca-Cola European Partners), Philip Mountford (CEO Hunkemöller) and more to be announced. The speakers will share their inspiring stories and experiences about their career path and the theme: The Power of Collaboration: Key to Success?

By participating in the Training Day on April 12, you will be able to develop your personal skills as well as to prepare for a job application. It is also a great opportunity to prepare for the EBT.

The Consultancy Experience will take place on April 13 and 14. Are you interested in consultancy and do you want to experience what it is like to be a consultant? Or do you want to get in touch with leading strategy consultancy firms Bain & Company, Deloitte, EY-Parthenon, Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger and Simon Kucher? The Consultancy Experience will offer you the perfect opportunity to get to know these big strategy consulting firms and to show them your skills and competences.

A special day for students interested in the Big Four will be organized on April 15: the Big Four Accountancy Experience. During this Day you will solve a challenging accounting case and get to know the Big Four (Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC) in an informal manner.

Next to this, the Case Days are organized in which you can extensively get to know one specific company during a whole day. This year, NIBC, Coolblue and FrieslandCampina are organizing the Case Days on April 8, 9 & 16, respectively. During these days, you will get to know the company during an extensive case followed by an informal activity.

From April 19 until 23 the Company Days will take place. During these five days you will have the opportunity to get to know companies of your interest. The Company Days offer various activities: Company Presentations, Workshops, Individual Conversations, Business Lunches/Dinners and Informal Activities. Every Company Day will end with an informal drink with the participating companies of that day.

This year the first ever Sustainability Symposium will be organized! During this evening, interesting speakers from different companies will provide insights into how sustainability can be incorporated within businesses.
