The Freshmen Symposium is an event hosted by VESTING for freshmen in the bachelor programme Econometrics and Operations Research (EOR). During this day freshmen will have the opportunity to listen to several interesting speakers and apply their knowledge of econometrics in case rounds. This year’s cases will be about applying econometrics in sports statistics and advertisement analytics. The speakers will talk about econometrics in the humanitarian sector and give us insight into a career as an econometrist. Doing so will give these students a view on some real-world applications of the programme.
To end the day there is also the opportunity to attend an etiquette dinner.
This year's Freshmen Symposium unfortunately is canceled due to the circumstances around Covid-19.
