Beta Business days

The Beta Business Days is a unique two-day career event for all students from the Faculty of Science & Engineering of the University of Groningen. The upcoming edition will take place online on the 16th and 17th of March 2021. 

The Beta Business Days gives more than 5000 Bachelor, Master, and PhD students the opportunity to investigate their career prospects and make contacts that could lead to a thesis project, an internship, or even a job.

Various activities will familiarize students with the needs of the participating companies. Companies can give a presentation or host a stand on the digital exposition to generate brand awareness among the attending students. 

Furthermore, there will be informal networking opportunities for students and the participating companies. The programme will also include activities such as case studies, speed dates and individual meetings for which participants will be selected based on their CV.  These activities will give companies and students the chance to get to know each other.

Beta Business days

During the Beta Business Days, you will be able to participate in different types of activities. During these activities, you will have the perfect opportunity to orientate yourself on your future career possibilities.

Business Presentations

These 50-minute long presentations are a good way to get an impression of the company and its career opportunities.
Case studies
During a case, you will get to know the company and encounter possible obstacles a company is facing. You will work in a team to solve a case problem.
Business Speed dates
During speed dates, you rotate every 10 minutes to a new company. This way you get a fast view of what different companies have to offer. This year there will be two speed date sessions for students interested in ‘Energy’ and ‘Data Science’.
Individual interviews
The individual meeting gives you the opportunity to speak half an hour with a company recruiter. This often leads to master project internships but can also serve as a job interview. 
Business Expo
During the business expo, you can visit companies at their stand and get to know them. Companies will organize interesting activities at their stand such as table football and virtual reality experiences.  
Openings speaker
On March 16 there will be an interesting opening speaker at 9:00 to start of this two day event. 

Besides these activities, the Beta Business Days offers other activities like a lunch fair where you can meet some non-business organizations which might be interesting for you as a student.


The deadline for enrolling for the activities which require CV selection (case studies, interviews, and speed dates) is March 7, 2021. Other activities are open for enrollment until the 10th of March!
