The EFR Business Week is one of the largest and most prestigious student organised events in Europe. We aspire to be the most innovative, society-aligned event that interactively connects and inspires students and companies. To meet our goal, we host two inspirational and interactive congresses. Furthermore, students are connected with companies through innovative recruitment events. The strength of the EFR Business Week lies in the combination of refreshing insights and experiences from students, companies and speakers.

We proudly to announce the theme of the EFR Business Week 2019: #TheNewWorld. We notice a new environment in which technology, Artificial Intelligence, blockchain, sustainability and big data are the keys to success. Moreover, there are important shifts in the social and political institutions of society; take the current political polarization, the divergence of political attitudes to ideological extremes, for example. We believe that enriching ourselves with insights into these topics is essential to guarantee our future involvement in this new world we live in and become the change leaders of tomorrow.

Are you ready for #TheNewWorld? Whether you are in your first, second, third year or masters, it is never too early nor too late to get inspired. Come listen to the stories of  our exciting speakers and participate in our activities. We are looking forward to meet you!
