This year we are proud to introduce two new elements that will be present at the LED 2019: the company fair and masterclasses. The company fair and masterclass are combined into a session that is parallel to the case sessions. Students can attend the session in the morning or the afternoon, instead of attending a company case during these day parts. This new session gives students the opportunity to network with and learn more about multiple different companies at once, instead of attending the case of one company, and to gain a new skill during one of our interesting interactive masterclasses. Below you can find more information about the two elements.

The Masterclasses
If you would be to choose this new element for one part of your day, you will start off with an interactive skill-based masterclass. The masterclasses will be given by professional experts in the fields of the main subject that is hosted and they allow you to learn new, interesting and relevant skills for your future career. The masterclasses for the morning and afternoon session will be given by different hosts and will cover different material. Click here to find out more about the masterclasses!

The Company Fair
After gaining new skills and insights at the morning or afternoon masterclass, you will continue to the company fair. During both the morning and afternoon sessions there will be 18 different companies present. The company fair provides the perfect opportunity for you to get to know multiple companies and their representatives from all of the different fields of econometrics all at once. The companies will vary across the morning and afternoon sessions.

Start up Stands
As of last year, the Landelijke Econometristendag also welcomes innovative and fast-growing start-ups. At the previous edition of the LED, you had the opportunity to meet in an informal matter with the start-ups at their “Start-up Stands” during the lunch. At the upcoming edition of the LED these stands will be present at the morning part of the company fair. So make sure to keep this in mind during your registration, if you are interested in in the possibilities for your future career at one of the start-ups.
