History of the Business Days

The history of the Business Days Twente event is rather interesting: the first editions were organized by study associations S.V. Arago, W.S.G. Isaac Newton and C.T.S.G. Alembic. As the event grew and grew, the associations deemed the event needed its own foundation, which led to the official foundation of the Stichting Business Days Universiteit Twente in 1996.

Our predecessors

This year marks the 37th time the Business Days Twente will be held at the University of Twente. Like every year, this is a great moment to honour and thank our predecessors. Their hard work has been vital in the organization and development of the Business Days Twente over the past years and has led to the Business Days Twente becoming the large-scale event it is today. It is with great pride that we can announce that this event has become the largest student-organized career event in the Netherlands. We’d like to express our many thanks to all of our predecessors.
