FAECTOR/ESE Excellence Programme

Applications for the Excellence Programme 2021 will open in December.

The FAECTOR/ESE Excellence Programme is a programme designed for the highly motivated Econometrie, Econometrics, Double Degree in Economics and Econometrics students. The goal of the programme is to give pre-Master and Bachelor students (second year or higher) the opportunity to explore different sides of an econometric theme. 

The themes in the previous years were:

  • 2016: Econometrics & Big Data

  • 2017: Econometrics & Health

  • 2018: Econometrics & Artificial Intelligence

  • 2019: Econometrics & Blockchain

  • 2020: Econometrics & Deep Learning

Besides building on academic knowledge, participating students get the opportunity to develop writing and soft skills with workshops and papers. In addition, students get to meet several companies during the programme and also receive 4 extracurricular ECTS and a certificate signed by the dean of Erasmus School of Economics, if they finish this programme successfully.

The FAECTOR/ESE Excellence Programme of 2021 starts in January and ends in June. We will have weekly sessions in block 3, 4 and 5 (excluding week 8 of each block), being either a guest lecture, a company visit, or a workshop. Most of the lectures and workshops are usually on Wednesdays from 5 until 7 pm and will take place either on campus or online.
