My name is Maria and I am the Academic Commissioner at SCOPE for the 2021-2022 academic year. Here I am in charge of six committees and make sure that all our academic events run smoothly. In order to ensure it, I communicate with our internal and external partners on a daily basis. But let me give you a brief overview of the committees I work with.
International Economic Orientation & International Financial Orientation
These committees are really fun. Here I organise trips during skills period 6 together with the universities where we will go to far-away countries for two weeks. Together with the committees I organise all operational aspects from flights to hotel stays, social activities and convince companies to join our event. In past, pre-COVID years, we flew to HongKong, Malaysia, Brazil, USA, Canada and many more.
This is a big event happening in November where we invite a lot of academic speakers to talk about interesting and insightful topics. Together with students, me and the committee organize panel discussions and engaging workshops. In recent years this event has always been a great success and it is very fun to organize.
With this committee I organize a series of personal skills-enhancing workshops every period. This includes workshops coping with Excel,PowerPoint, Influencer Marketing etc. Here, I can organize something creative together with the committee which is really enjoyable.
While "Academic Series" focuses on skill-enhacning workshops, Seminars aims at bringing academic workshops to Maastricht every period. A little bit like little Symposium every period. The workshops range from cryptocurrency to leadership skills. Also here, I can freely have a look at interesting speakers and get them to come to Maastricht.
International Case Competition @ Maastricht
This is one of SCOPE's biggest events. Every year, 16 universities from all around the world come to Maastricht to compete in two 3-hour cases and one 24-hour case. This event is a joint venture between SBE and SCOPE and here I organize together with a committee of five people all operational aspects of this one-week event. A very prestigious event to organize but it is also a lot of fun.
I hope that I could give you a little overview of all Academic Events you can organize as the next Academic Commissioner. Of course you also have the freedom to add other interesting academic events to the event portfolio of SCOPE. If you would like to hear more about my daily operations as an Academic Commissioner within the board of SCOPE Maastricht then do not hesitate to reach out to me via mail firstname.lastname@example.org or let's meet for a coffee here.
I look forward to hearing from you
