We are on the verge of the new academic year 2012-2013, which means that many new and enthusiastic students will get their first acqaintance with the Faculty of Economics and Business: The faculty introduction period has started!
All new students get a programme specific introduction. Today FEB welcomed the new students who will start their (pre)MSc programme and the students who will take an exchange programme.
As of Monday 3 September all new Bachelor Students will start their 'Faculty Introduction week'. They will be welcomed by their programme director and study advisor and will get to know their so-called "Study Performance and Academic Attitudes (SPAA) group". This is a continuous element throughout the first year and in the Faculty Introduction Week as well.
Also on Monday, all students will attend the first lectures of their programme. In addition, practical matters will be arranged in an ICT training, a library instruction session and a book sale. On Wednesday, the study societies will present themselves in an interactive information market.
Furhtermore, numerous workshops are on offer in the Faculty Introduction Week. All students will follow a workshop with one of our many young researchers, in which they will share their passion for research with a group of first-years. EBF and its sub-associations will also give a workshop about being active next to the studies.
Finally, there will be a range of facultative workshops, from interesting games to study skills to workshops about the Dutch language and culture (especially for our international students). These workshops are given by a great number of people from inside and outside the faculty.
The FEB hopes all new students will have an interesting, useful and fun week!
