About ARP

Amsterdam Research Project
For the 18th consecutive year, a group of highly motivated and ambitious students is bound for a country with an upcoming economy to research business opportunities for Dutch organizations. With full support from Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam, these students will conduct their research in Vietnam in April 2018.

The history of the Amsterdam Research Project (ARP) shows extensive expertise in business consultancy and research in foreign countries. The project’s track record shows high-quality results that enabled partner organizations to obtain a competitive edge overseas.

ARP focuses on Dutch companies who want to expand their business to the upcoming economy of Vietnam. The starting point has remained the same throughout previous projects: your company and its objectives. What would the ARP’s legitimacy be if not to answer crucial questions that help you and your company?

Those questions will be transformed into a tailor-made approach, with several months of preparation and 5 weeks of field-research in Vietnam. The students are professionally trained consultants who have the resources of VU University, as well as multiple academic and professional experts at their disposal.

ARP aims for the best possible quality. For this reason, Study Association Aureus has selected prime students from the final bachelor and master programmes. These highly motivated students are offered and extraordinary opportunity to gain tangible experience(s) and obtain valuable skills for their professional career. This cuts both ways since you get to work with these students and potentially find your future employees and colleagues in this group.
