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 8th of September (after the classes have ended) we will leave for the German Island of Borkum. Together with around 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!

On Sunday (the 10th of September) we will be back in Groningen around 13:30, giving you enough time to prepare your second week at the faculty.

This year, we will turn Borkum into a treasure island of pirates! After your first stressful week as a student, nothing is better than to lay back, relax and play it like a pirate. So get together your best Jack Sparrow look and sail with us to an unforgettable weekend! Joining the EBF introduction weekend is the perfect way to start your studies in Groningen!
