About

The Governmental Economics Tour is a three-day event where young talent has the chance to get acquainted with large (semi)-public organizations! Last year, participating companies were the Ministry of Finance, De Nederlandsche Bank, OchtendMensen and the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands in the European Union. Interactive presentations will be given at these economic regulators at home and abroad, as well as real life complex cases! This way you, as a motivated student, get an insight into the work and you can show your abilities to the participating parties. Last year, on March 2nd, we went to The Hague in the morning, to the Ministry of Finance, after which we visited OchtendMensen in Amersfoort. On March 3th we visited De Nederlandsche Bank in Amsterdam, after which we went by bus to Brussels, where we spent the night, On March 4th, we received an interesting challenging case from the PVEU! While the program for this year has yet to be announced, we expect a similar program this year.

It will be an unforgettable experience in these three politically interesting cities with a lot of interaction between you and the professionals!

Applications for this event will open on 2023-01-24
