During this three-week programme, you and your team will solve a real-life challenge for a company. You are guided by professionals and participate in workshops.
Startups and scale-ups, SME’s, corporates (basically any company with a minimum of three people working full time in the company) from any industry. A selection of companies that took part previously: Unilver, GoSpooky, Philips, The Talent Institute, Deedmob, Findest, Quicargo, NN, and WPG.
No, it is fully extracurricular, but we expect you to spend in total around 60 hours (20 hours per week per person) on solving the challenge. However, participation is free of charge.
This programme is for ambitious 3rd and 4th year students or recent graduates (of UvA Economics and Business). It is especially aimed at those who are about to enter the job market in the Netherlands. Participating in this programme will boost your cv and increase your network.
28 June – 16 July (but we will match you to a business challenge a week earlier).
Please note that it is not advised to apply if you’re planning to take exams during the period of this challenge.
Admission is based on a short motivation, so fill in the form and show us why companies need you to solve their problems. You can upload a video pitch (max. 30 seconds) or write a short motivation (max. 150 words). We will carefully select participants based on motivation, work experience, extracurricular activities, and so on. It is up to you how to convince us!
You’ll hear by 18 June if you’re selected. Please note: we only have a limited number of spots available.
Please Note: Due to the corona crisis it is possible that the meetings will be held online and that you work on these problems with your team during online sessions.
