Financial Association Netherlands
The Financial Association Netherlands (FAN) is a national platform to improve the relationship between the different financial study associations and companies in The Netherlands. Five different study associations from Amsterdam (FSA), Groningen (FSG), Maastricht (Scope), Tilburg (Asset | Accounting & Finance) and Rotterdam (FSR) are connected within the FAN.
The main objective of this organisation is to close the gap between theory and the corporate world. Within the FAN, the opinion is shared that cooperation on the national level results in providing better information towards the student and creates extra opportunities for companies. Because of the existence of the FAN, companies get the possibility to target students at a national level.
The FAN aims to organise a national event and sends e-mails collectively. Furthermore, the different members of the FAN have their own portfolio of activities throughout the academic year as well in order to satisfy the diverse interests and needs of the Dutch financial students. These events vary from in-house cycles, business courses, study trips, workshops and congresses. Due to this, members of these associations receive a lot of information, and hopefully, they are capable of making the right decision with respect to the start of their professional careers.
