Take part in workshops

You take workshops for different purposes. Of course, you can gain professional skills like programming in Python, or presenting, but you can also work out what kind of a career might suit you, or learn to profile yourself on LinkedIn. Workshops can yield both hard skills and soft skills, both of which you can use for your professional and personal development.

This page shows you some options for finding workshops offered by Economics and Business, our study associations, and third-party providers.

  • Workshops offered on the edX platform

    edX is a trusted source of quality online workshops, set up by Harvard University and MIT. You can take hundreds of different courses, often for no charge (payment is made if you want a certificate as proof that you completed the course). Have a look at what edX has to offer, like courses in data science, marketing, blockchain, and business writing.

  • Workshops offered by the UvA and other third-party sites

    Like the online workshops, the university and study organisations host numerous and diverse workshops, which can serve different purposes. The UvA’s career workshops are divided into three categories:

    • Inspiration
    • Personal development and self-assessment
    • Job application skills

    For the complete overview we refer you to the career orientation page of the UvA’s Career Centre, or our list of workshops and events.
