Name: Gijs van de Wetering
Function: M&A Specialist at Blacktrace
Former studies: BSc Economics and Business Economics & MSc Finance (Tilburg University)
Gijs’ experiences with the EBT:
“While still doubting between M&A and asset management, I participated in the EBT to explore various career paths. With its comprehensive and diverse set of companies, the EBT is an excellent platform for students to meet their future
employers and experience different company cultures. During Blacktrace’s company presentation, the team explained their day-to-day activities, company culture, and job opportunities. But, more importantly, they showed that M&A offers the most appealing path for a graduate like myself. Now, 4 years later, I look forward to meeting you and discussing what it’s like to work at Blacktrace during our presentation and interviews.”
