The Amsterdam Career Days is the perfect career event for students who are orienting for their future career. Thanks to the collaboration between faculty associations Aureus (VU University Amsterdam) and Sefa (University of Amsterdam), more than 2000 students with different backgrounds are reached every year. It is the biggest career event of its kind in Amsterdam, focusing on students with a background in Economics, Business Administration, Econometrics, Finance and Accounting. It offers students the possibility to get to know leading multinationals, non-profit organisations and other respected companies.
Students are able to get a good impression of the attending companies by means of presentations, cases, individual meetings and speeddates, as well as during a more informal setting such as a high wine/beer, workshops or our general lunches. This year, the event will take place from the 1th of March until the 5th of March 2021.
The Amsterdam Career Days was organised for the first time in 1995 by UvA’s Economics and Business faculty association Sefa. In 2002, the faculty association Aureus joined the ACD organisation in order to attract students from the VU. Today, the ACD is still being organised by both study associations and attracts not only university students from Amsterdam but from whole over the country.
Over the past years our event has grown to be one of the biggest career events of the Netherlands. With 2000 applications last year, of which 80% were master students or recently graduated, the ACD formula has consistently proven its success. In 2021, the Amsterdam Career Days has its 26th edition. This year we promise you the same optimal professionalism and quality as we have offered in the past 25 editions.
