Maastricht Finance Day 2017 October 5th, 2017

This year we proudly hosted the 15th edition of the Maastricht Finance Day. With the theme Fluent in Finance, the day welcomed 16 German and international companies such as: ABN Amro, Accuracy, Achmea, ACT Commodities, Bayer, Bearing Point, Deutsche Bank, Henkel, ING Netherlands, ING Diba, KPMG, KPMG Luxemburg, PwC, Roland Berger, Seven Ventures and zeb. About 250 students attended the event at the beautiful Van der Valk Hotel in Maastricht and gained valuable insights in the field of finance.

The day started off with an inspiring speech from our guest speaker Vince Meens who spoke about Blockchain and its impact on the financial sector. Afterwards, the students attended company workshops where they learned about the companies and solved cases and some students also had the opportunity to attend individual interviews.

After the first round of workshops, an amazing lunch buffet was prepared with live cooking, giving students the time to take a break and refresh. Parallel to the second round of workshops in the afternoon, a company fair was set up where students and recruiters had the chance to exchange CVs and contact details. The fair led over to casual networking drinks to give both parties as much time as possible to get to know each other. Afterwards the students and companies went to restaurants for the recruitment dinners.

Overall, it was a very successful event where students as well as companies were satisfied by the professionality and quality of the event.
