The Next Step Festival

Fri, 1 September 2017
15:30 hour until 00:00 hour

2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of the merger of the Faculties of Economics and Management & Organisation, forming the current-day Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of the University of Groningen (RUG). This year also marks the founding of the Economics and Business Faculty Association (EBF), the FEB student association. To celebrate this milestone, we will gather on Friday 1 September 2017 to reminisce about where we came from and look forward at our strong vision for the road ahead: The Next Step.

The Next Step Festival

For The Next Step festival all students, staff, alumni, professors, partners, children and friends of FEB are invited. This festive day starts with speeches, debates and lectures centered around the themes creativity and innovation. Afterwards the festivities continue with music, drinks and more.

10 years

The Faculties of Economics and Management & Organisation merged 10 years ago. The EBF, the central student association for economics and business students, formed at the same time as the merger of these two faculties. Thanks to the merger economics and business expertise are thoroughly connected. In 2017, FEB has 6,400 students with more than 60 nationalities. Our research and education are among the best in Europe and our successful alumni are spread throughout the world.
