There are two board members responsible for all contact with the business partners of the FSA. The Externals are in charge of the continuing the contact with our current partners, for acquiring new partners and for the sale of our promotional opportunities. They will visit every partner during the summer and discuss the possibilities for the coming academic year, among which the participation for our events. Further, they strive to continually improve the social media branding of the FSA.
After my bachelor Economics and Business, I finished my internship at a firm specialized in business valuation. At this company I was introduced to complex queries related to company value modeling. However, the firm works in the niche of company valuations and after this internship I can conclude that I want to understand more about the financial world and the opportunities it has to offer. Working for the FSA will give me that opportunity. The FSA organises a range of events during the year with each event emphasizing another type of business. Fields of business include for example management consultancy, accountancy, investment banking and asset management. All events are organised in close collaboration with major financial institutions in the Benelux and London and aim to get students in content with potential future employers. As a board member, I will get the opportunity to explore and develop myself in a professional finance environment. Together with my external relations colleague Renée, I hope to play a key role in connecting the FSA, business partners and ambitious students who want to familiarize themselves with the financial world and the opportunities it may present.
