About Nijmegen Career Event
The Nijmegen Career Event, in short NCE, is an annual event with the aim of connecting students and companies. At this event, several companies show through presentations and workshops how students can apply their knowledge with regard to business administration and economics in practice.
For students who have already passed the orientation phase, the NCE offers the opportunity to introduce students and companies to each other by facilitating individual conversations. Here, both the student and the organisation can see whether there is a fit between them for, for example, an internship, a traineeship, or a starting position.
The NCE is the result of a collaboration between Study Association Synergy and the ESV, representing the studies of Business Administration, (Business) Economics, Law and Management, and International Business Administration.
