Get in touch with motivated fellow students and an alumni network made up of more than 800 former FSA members, many of whom now work at renowned companies. You also have the opportunity to get in contact with recruiters from large companies. Naturally, being a part of a committee within the largest financial study association in the Netherlands is an excellent addition to your resumé.
You will receive trainings from companies such as Van Lanschot Kempen, PwC and Deloitte. Additionally, tailor-made trainings are provided to gain experience and master useful tools, such as working with Excel and furthering presentation and acquisition skills.
Being a committee member provides ample opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills. Because all FSA committees are relatively small, you will have a lot of responsibility. This gives you the freedom to give a personal twist to the project you are working on.
If you are interested in being a part of an FSA committee, you can send an email to [email protected]. You will be invited for an orientation meeting, during which the different possibilities of involvement within the FSA will be discussed.
You can apply for a committee by sending your CV and a list of the 4 committees you like the most to [email protected]
After the orientation meeting an interview will take place with two members of the board.
All applicants will hear before September 15th whether they have been selected for a committee.

Do you want to receive more information about the different committees before you apply? We totally understand!

During this meeting we will shortly discuss the FSA in general, all the committees and answer any questions you may have. We hope to see you soon!
An important part of my board year was finding out where my interests are. My position as external relations gave me an insight in different companies in different sectors. Partly because of the projects that I coordinated, my interest in Corporate Finance and M&A grew. The London Banking Tour eventually convinced me to apply for a position in Investment Banking, which lead to my current position at Barclays.
