FAECTOR/ ESE Excellence Programme

The FAECTOR/ESE Excellence Programme is a programme designed for the highly-motivated students in Econometrics. The goal of the programme is to give Bachelor students (second year or higher) the opportunity to see different sides of an econometric theme not usually treated within the curriculum. This programme, organised by FAECTOR in cooperation with Erasmus School of Economics, allows students to implement their econometrics knowledge in a different way than they are used to.

Not every student can join. Students get selected based on their CV, grade list and motivation letter, all written in English. Every week, the selected students will go to several lectures, workshops, inhousedays and other educational trips. Besides that, they will also read and write several papers within the theme and complete assignments. If a selected student finishes this programme successfully, he or she will receive 4 extracurricular ECTS and a certificate signed by the dean of Erasmus School of Economics.

The FAECTOR/ESE Excellence Programme starts in January and ends in June. The theme of the programme is always announced over the summer before. Previous themes include:

  • 2016: Econometrics & Big Data
  • 2017: Econometrics & Health
  • 2018: Econometrics & Artificial Intelligence
  • 2019: Econometrics & Blockchain
  • 2020: Econometrics & Deep Learning
  • 2021: Econometrics & Cybersecurity
  • 2022: Econometrics & Climate
