Business Challenges


Several times a year we facilitate Business Challenges, during which students come up with business solutions to real life managerial issues. As a company you really get to see our students in action: how they deal with the research question, what their approach is, how they advise and consult you and what their skills are. A Business Challenge entails a multidisciplinary group of about 25 selected 3rd year bachelor’s and master’s students who works fully dedicated to a business case presented by your organisation for six to ten weeks, coached by our lecturers.

What's in it for your company?

  • The Challenge is tailored to your wishes and the demands of your business case
  • It offers the opportunity to meet our brightest students’ fresh minds
  • You can brand your organisation as a future employer

For Shell and NAM students drafted their own valuation model, including political and commercial risks, for projects in the oil and gas industry.

‘I was very impressed by the quality of the students and by the ideas and concepts they had developed. It was inspiring to see with how much energy and ambition they worked together and that they were thus able to achieve exceptional results.’ - Kees Nieuwenkamp, NAM

In the Military Business Challenge, the Ministry of Defense asked FEB students to advise them on an alternative programme for recruiting, training and supporting highly qualitative reservists.
