The Landelijke Econometristendag
The National Econometricians Day (in Dutch: Landelijke Econometristendag, abbreviated as LED) is the largest annual recruitment event for students in the fields of econometrics, operations research and actuarial sciences in the Netherlands. On this day, over 800 students get the opportunity to orientate themselves on their future careers and get in contact with their potential future employers.
Who can participate?
The LED is aimed at all students in the fields of econometrics, operations research 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 econometrics students, we don’t use CV selection.
The LED is an event of the National Institute of Study associations for Econometrics (in Dutch: Landelijke Orgaan der Econometrische Studieverenigingen, abbreviated as LOES). The LOES consists of the six study associations for econometrics in the Netherlands: Asset | Econometrics (Tilburg University), FAECTOR (Erasmus University Rotterdam), Kraket (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), SCOPE | Vectum (Maastricht University), VESTING (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen), and VSAE (University of Amsterdam). Each year, the LED is organized by members of one of these six study associations. The LED 2020 is organized by FAECTOR | Erasmus University Rotterdam.
