About

FAECTOR is the official school association of Erasmus School of Economics and with over 1600 members we are the largest and most prestigious association for students interested in econometrics worldwide. We enrich the student experience of all econometricians in the broadest sense of the word. We achieve this through our three pillars: Social, Education and Career.

Social

Education

Career

Through our Social pillar our members form lifelong friendships with their fellow students. From their first steps at university until far into their working life we bring econometricians together. Events like the famous After Exam Drinks, the City Trip, the Ski Trip, sports tournaments and dinners form a bridge between all our students. During our social activities econometrics students have a lot of fun and at the same time build a network. Also after their studies FAECTOR helps econometricians to stay in touch with each other through our alumni association RECNET.

We broaden and deepen students’ knowledge and skills related to the field of econometrics. Our Education portfolio consists of projects like the FAECTOR Research Project, the Excellence Programme, several workshops and the Best Econometric Thesis Award. With these projects we help students develop themselves and excel during their studies. Furthermore, we provide the cheapest econometrics books on campus for our members.

With our Career pillar we are the stepping stone to the career of our students. At successful events like the Econometric Career Days, the Business Trip, the Quantitative Finance Tour and Find Your Match many of our students meet their future employer each year. These events connect ambitious students with prestigious companies and form the bridge between student life and career. Furthermore, if you are looking for a (part-time) job make sure to check out the vacancies on our platform econometrie.com.

We organise this broad range of projects each year thanks to over 70 active members who are active in 16 committees and the board. A committee or board year at FAECTOR is the perfect opportunity to develop yourself professionally. You will improve communication, teamwork and organisational skills which will be essential for the rest of your life and career. Besides, by becoming one of our active members you will create friendships that last for a lifetime.
