Introduction Weekend

Meet your fellow students at the EBF Introduction Weekend!


Are you an incoming student at the Faculty of Economics and Business? Are you going to study International Business, Bedrijfskunde, Economics & Business Economics? Then we are here for you!

At the EBF Introduction Weekend you will be able to meet your fellow students and kick-start your time in Groningen! At the 7th of September (after the classes have ended) we will leave for the German Island of Borkum. Together with more than 400 students you will engage in all kinds of fun activities, including visits to the beach, bonfires, international games and incredible parties. Not only will you experience an amazing weekend, you will also make friends for a lifetime!

This year’s theme is sports. You can become your favourite soccer hero, or be ready in your best most colourful 80’s workout clothes. Saturday the second evening, we will all dress up and the best costume will win a nice prize. Some activities will be linked to the theme, but overall there will be recreational opportunities to hang out and get to know your fellow students. If you want to start the academic year in a great way and make friends for the rest of your student time. Sign up before Wednesday the 5th of September.

On Sunday (the 9th of September) we will be back in Groningen around 13:30, giving you enough time to prepare your second week at the faculty.

You can sign up until the 5th of September, 23:59.

What is the EBF?


“I really enjoyed the first weekend of my study at the EBF introduction camp. I really recommend to all the new students to participate. It is a great opportunity to meet new people. Besides that, it is a weekend full of fun and you don’t want to miss it!”
