Sefa’s history

Sefa, the study association of Economics and Business (EB) at the University of Amsterdam, was founded in 1922 with the name SEF. In 1995 the name Sefa arose through a merger between SEF and EEFA.

Sefa, which is currently one of the largest study associations in the Netherlands, already started to operate in the interests of FEB students in 1922. From that moment on SEF, and in a later stage also EEFA, would develop into professional organisations. This development laid the foundations for Sefa’s current structure. In its earlier years, Sefa functioned as an umbrella organisation for six sub-fraternities, each of which focussed on its own subject area. Throughout the years the sub-organisations started to function independently. By means of a periodical chairman convention, Sefa remains in contact and works together with her sister organisations.
