FAECTOR Consultancy Project
Project subscriptions for this year have closed.
The FAECTOR Consultancy Project offers you the opportunity to become an econometric consultant during your studies! In block 4 & 5, you can get the chance to do a full consultancy project at an interesting organization. You will use and improve both your analytical and soft skills in a project team accompanied by professionals.
The main goal during the FAECTOR Consultancy Project is your development. You will develop your skills both ‘on-the-job’ as well as during trainings by experts in the field. In the FAECTOR Consultancy Project, you will discover and learn how econometrics is used in business.
First, you sign up for the FAECTOR Consultancy Pool, to which all applications are accepted. Members of the Consultancy Pool are allowed to follow trainings that will make them better consultants. After signing up for the Pool, you can apply for specific projects that you like. For each project you will be asked to write a short motivation of a maximum of 150 words. FAECTOR will select around 4 students per project to become the consultants. The workload and exact time span of a project differ, but will be between 4 and 8 hours per week. Application to the FAECTOR Consultancy Project is open to students in their second year or higher. Currently, consultancy teams are working on projects at Excelsior, KNGF Geleidehonden and the Dutch Health Inspectorate.
Members of the Consultancy Pool get the privilege of following trainings that will help you to become a good consultant. Students active on a project have a guranteed spot at these trainings, and other members of the Consultancy Pool can join these trainings on a first come first serve basis. This year, there were trainings by Gupta Strategists and parliament member Martin Wörsdörfer.
