Experience the SBE Masterday, the essential opening event for your master’s programme! All SBE master students are highly expected to attend this event. The general Masterday includes an opening of the day, programme-specific sessions, and the chance to get to know your fellow master students.

The day consists of two parts; a programme at VU (free of charge) and social activities
arranged by Study Association Aureus. For those who join the Aureus programme, there are additional exclusive activities, including a pub quiz and networking drinks with companies at the Zuidas bars. Enjoy these opportunities to socialize with your peers over drinks and snacks from Aureus!

Besides the Masterday, becoming a member of Aureus gives you many benefits. These benefits include access to valuable career networking opportunities, engaging career events such as the Amsterdam Career Days, and a variety of fun activities such as social drinks and trips like the Wintersport, all while connecting with fellow students. Moreover, you can take advantage of the Aureus services, including the Aureus Discount Card, bookstore discounts, CV and LinkedIn checks, and more. To become a member and participate you must pay a 5€ membership fee annually.
