Who can participate?
The LED is aimed at all students in the fields of econometrics, operations research, data science and actuarial sciences in the Netherlands in their 3rd year or higher. In order to participate at the LED you need to be a member of one of the six study associations for econometrics and operations research in the Netherlands. If you aren’t a member yet, you can contact the study association at your university for more information.
To make sure that the LED is also open for international students, a lot of companies offer their cases in English. This is indicated by a British flag next to the case description. In order to keep the LED available for all students, we don’t use CV selection.
