SBE Career & Development Days

Maastricht University School of Business and Economics hosts the second edition of the SBE Career & Development Days (CDDs) on March 11 and 12, 2020.

The CDDs offer a variety of lectures and workshops on topics related to personal and professional development (e.g. CV writing, time management, digitalization, personal branding), and information sessions (e.g. major possibilities, Study Abroad Fair). Next to that, the Maastricht Business Days (the biggest recruitment event at SBE organised by SCOPE Maastricht) constitute a large part of the CDDs.

The CDDs aim to:

  • Inspire and empower students to identify, develop and realise personal, academic and professional opportunities.
  • Offer a variety of lectures, workshops, orientation activities and recruitment events to enhance lifelong employability as part of the curriculum.
  • Connect external relations (industry, institutions, alumni) with staff and students, and provide a platform to exchange knowledge between all stakeholders.
 
As the MBDs (hosted at Kasteel Vaeshartelt) are part of the CDDs, a bus shuttle will be available making it possible to attend activities at both event venues.
 
Please visit the “Events” page to search through the CDD workshop offer and register for your preferred CDD activities.
