Academy Committee Recruitment

More information

The Academy Committee is responsible for the study services offered by the EBF. This means that you will organise the EBF Booksale four times a year, manage the sale of the summaries, help with bachelor ceremonies and write articles for FEBtastic Students on Nestor.

Next to that, the Academy Committee is responsible for organising the EBF Winter School. This is an event for ambitious students which takes place in January 2019. The event will consist of field trips, speakers and a case. By organising this event you will gain experience in contacting speakers and companies.

The Academy Committee is, with its diverse tasks, one of the largest committees of the EBF and therefore a very good way to meet new people and have great committee evenings. Additionally it is a very instructive challenge to organise a broadening event and to make sure your fellow students can study effectively.

Internationals are welcome to apply

“Becoming an active EBF member has definitely been one of the best decisions I made while studying at the University of Groningen! As Academy Committee member you share responsibility for study services offered by the EBF and it was amazing to be involved in organising the EBF Booksales, managing the sale of the summaries and facilitating the EBF study weeks. Being part of this committee gave me the opportunity to work together with others to contribute to pursuing goals which are of value to all students of the Economic and Business Faculty. During my year at this committee I learned a lot and in the process my enthusiasm for the EBF only grew bigger. The Academy Committee enabled me to develop both social and professional skills and broadened my study experience, while having great times, enjoyable meetings and memorable EBF socials and parties with my incredible committee members!”
