The Orientation Days are an event where second, third and fourth year students can get to know the different fields of the studies Econometrics & Operations Research better. In this way they can prepare for the choice of the major and/or Master specialisation they would like to pursue. In our opinion, best way to get to know these fields is by discovering what companies working in this field do, so that students can also see how their econometrics knowledge would be applied in their later (working) life. Because this is often the first experience of students with companies, those companies that participate can make sure that they are associated with the major and Master specialisations. In this way, students directly think of those companies as future employees.
There will be several Orientation Days, one for each of the following Master specialisations at Erasmus University Rotterdam: Quantitative Finance, Business Analytics & Quantitative Marketing, Operations Research & Quantitative Logistics, Econometrics. During an Orientation Day, a professor will give a presentation about that specific Master specialisation. Afterwards, the participating company gets the opportunity to give a presentation in this specific Master specialisation to inform students what working within that field might look like and how the company implements the econometric techniques mastered during the studies.
