Econometrics in Practice Day
The Online Econometrics in Practice Day (EPD) will give econometricians insight into the practical side of econometrics. During the day, you can meet several employees from companies and explore your future career opportunities. You can also gain insight into their work and show your econometrics skills in practice during business cases.
The EPD starts off with a small presentation of Bas ter Weel telling about his research about increasing the minimum wage for the youth. After that, we proceed with two parallel morning cases, given by the participating companies Districon and Eyeon. After the lunch break, everyone will either continue with another case, given by TBA or a training about tackling a problem in a structured way.
Districon Case - Clustering stores to balance workload throughout the week
The Districon case revolves around a large non-food retailer. We have to decide when to go to which stores, but for that, we need clusters of stores to be delivered in one go.
Eyeon Case - Forecasting game
Forecasting has fascinated people for thousands of years. During the EPD, we ask you to take on the role of a forecaster yourself by using statistical methods! In an online game, you will be competing in teams to generate the most accurate forecast.
TBA Case - Game about Quay design
The TBA Game is about optimally designing the quay of a container terminal, with the goal to offer the vessels a good service level, while keeping the costs as low as possible.
Consultancy Case Training
To tackle a project it is really important to start with a good structure. This training will learn you how to tackle a project in a structured way.
This year's Econometrics in Practice Day will be completely online.
The registrations are open until November 19, 12.00 hours.
