Are you a prospective International Bachelor of Econometrics and Operational Research (IBEOR) or a Double Bachelor BSc² Econometrics and Economics student of the Erasmus School of Economics? Your student life starts now with the official FAECTOR/ESE Econometrics/BSc² Warming-Up! Make sure to get yourself a ticket and get to know your fellow freshmen before the start of the year!

FAECTOR is the official school association of Erasmus School of Economics. Furthermore, it is the largest and most prestigious association for students interested in econometrics worldwide. Each year the Erasmus School of Economics and FAECTOR organise an introduction weekend for all prospective Econometrics/BSc² students of the new academic year. Due to corona, we have come up with an alternative, which will be a mixture of online and offline activities. That means you can participate even when you are not in Rotterdam yet! It will exist of three days of introductory activities, games and a dive into the econometric world. We offer you the best opportunity to get to know your fellow freshmen and your study association FAECTOR in an exciting atmosphere.

What to expect?
The Econometrics/BSc² Warming-Up is organised by FAECTOR in cooperation with the Erasmus School of Economics. Our (committee) members will introduce you to the student life of Rotterdam. All prospective first-year students of IBEOR or BSc² are invited to join, which means you will certainly get to enjoy a diverse experience of different cultures, and allows you to meet your fellow students.

The introduction activities will take place from August 27th to August 29th, right before the start of the academic year. On Thursday morning (August 27th) ESE will kick-off with an educational programme. In the afternoon, FAECTOR will host a social programme on Zoom where you will get to know your fellow freshman via speeddating and a pubquiz. Friday morning will be hosted by ESE again. Friday afternoon will consist of an online escape room in teams and a virtual VrijMiBo (Dutch abbreviation for Friday afternoon drinks)! On Saturday we will explore the amazing city of Rotterdam in small groups with some challenges and a nice picknick.

You can join the Econometrics/ BSc² Warming-Up for free. If you will not be in the Netherlands yet or do not feel comfortable with the offline event, you can also choose to not participate on Saturday. Please indicate this in the form.
