The Amsterdam Career Days (ACD)
The Amsterdam Career Days is a five-day career event for students who are orienting for their future career. Thanks to the collaboration between faculty associations Aureus (VU University Amsterdam) and Sefa (University of Amsterdam), more than 2000 students with different backgrounds are reached every year. It is the biggest career event of its kind in Amsterdam, focusing on students with a background in Economics, Business Administration, Econometrics, Finance and Accounting. It offers students the possibility to get to know leading multinationals, non-profit organisations and other respected companies.
Students are able to get a good impression of the attending companies by means of presentations, cases, individual meetings and workshops, as well as during a more informal setting such as a lunch, dinner, network cruise or drink. This year, the event will take place from the 2nd of March until the 6th of March 2020.

What can I learn as a committee member?
As a committee member, you are responsible for organizing the largest career event in Amsterdam. You learn how to act within a professional environment and acquire interesting companies. The budget needs to be managed well and a marketing campaign has to be developed and implemented in order to attract all ambitious students of both the UvA and the VU. As a committee member of this career committee, you gain relevant practical experience that will provide you with a head start when you will be standing at the beginning of your future career one day.
Sebastiaan Hersmis – Chairman ACD 2018.
”The 23rd edition of the ACD turned out to be a great success! Together with a committee of 8 people, we introduced several new elements to improve this already great concept, and with great success. Already being Sefa’s largest event in terms of prestige, participating students and revenue, a record-high amount of companies participated in this year’s edition.
Organising such an event is challenging, but very rewarding. Over the year, the entire committee developed their communication, organisational and leadership skills. As chairman, I was involved in all aspects of the event, from incorporating the general marketing plan to motivating the acquisition team to the practical coordination during the event itself. All in all, a great experience!”
