Are you ready to challenge yourself in the upcoming academic year 2021-2022? Are you interested in the ever-buzzing Dutch entrepreneurial scene? Do you want to contribute to fostering cross-faculty and cross-university entrepreneurship among students? If this sounds like something you are interested in, a Board Year at the official study association of Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, ECE students, would be a perfect fit!
What is a board year?
During a board year at ECE students you get the chance to develop yourself in many different ways. Together with fellow board members and the team of Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, you are responsible for ECE Students’ overall daily activities for a whole academic year. You organize events and programmes, lead committees, contact and visit numerous prestigious companies. Most importantly and in line with the mission of Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, you work on the growth and support base for entrepreneurship on campus. This includes inspiring fellow students to pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions, foster innovative thinking and communicating about career opportunities!
More in general, a board year is a good opportunity to build your leadership skills, expand your network and explore different activities to find out what type of career you’d like to pursue after graduation. If you plan on running your own business in the future, running an organization in a lean/agile way is great practice!
