FAECTOR Consultancy Project
The applications for the FAECTOR Consultancy Project are open! The FCP is a great way to gain practical experience in the field of Econometrics next to your studies. You will solve a problem in the field of consultancy and data analytics for one of the following organizations: For dog lovers, we have a project at KNGF Guide Dogs which aims to predict the donation behavior of current donors. For students who have a wider love for animals we also offer a project at Rotterdam Zoo (Diergaarde Bijdorp) where one can predict the number of visitors. Finally, we have a project at the Nederlandse Hartstichting where participating students give insight into when people stop donating to this foundation. You can read more about the projects here.
During this project, you will receive professional guidance from either MIcompany, Building Blocks, or Amsterdam Data Collective, and you will also receive trainings from Gupta Strategists and MIcompany.
The best part about the FCP is the flexibility. The workload ranges from just 3 to 6 hours per week, depending on your availability and the demand of the organization. We have made sure that, especially during the beginning of the project, everything can be done online (including the professional guidance and trainings if needed). This means you can still do something useful and fill that CV gap during the Coronacrisis!
The project will start in the first week of April, and last for about two months. In the end, you will present your results to the organization that you are working for. Next to gaining valuable personal experience, this project also allows you to give back to the community by helping these organizations with a problem they would not have been able to solve on their own.
You have to submit your CV and a (short) personal motivation. You will also be able to rank the projects in order of which one you would like to participate in the most. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Applications are now open! You can apply here.
The application deadline is the 28th of March 23:59.
