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 workshops, as well as during a more informal setting such as a lunch, dinner, network cruise or drink. Upcoming year, the 25th edition will be held in the first week of March 2020. 

Not sure on how to apply for the ACD or how the process works after you apply for an activity? This video will explain it. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to reach out via our livechat in the bottom right corner.


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 2020, the Amsterdam Career Days has its 25th lustrum. This year we promise you the same optimal professionalism and quality as we have offered in the past 24 editions.
