EBFThe EBF (Faculty of Economics and Business student association) is an association that builds a bridge for students between their college years and career. The EBF organizes symposia, research projects in and outside of Europe, two-day congresses and much more events.
MOREORE is an acronym for Masters Of REsearch. As the name suggests, it is the study association for all Research Master students of the Faculty of Economics and Business.
Its primary purpose of existence is to counterbalance the stressful Research Master program. It does so by hosting social events for all Research Master students within the faculty, thus keeping students from all profiles in touch with each other.

"As a researcher each working day is different, as it depends on the project you are working on."
"The work I did as a student assistant combined with good thesis results allowed me to start as a researcher at the University of Groningen immediately after completing the MSc in Finance and the Research Master's. Although my current focus is in the area of microfinance and development economics, I am also interested in Asset Pricing, Investment Banking and Equity Research.

I enjoy the freedom you have as a researcher
Once I decided to leave Turkey there were a number of European countries where I could have studied. I eventually came to the Netherlands because a lot of programmes here are taught in English.
I was keen to take the International Economics & Business Research Master because of its double focus, and because I enjoy the freedom you have as a researcher. When I'm doing research I'm working for myself and my project, and that makes me happy. I have to say that the Research Master is very demanding. It's not something for someone who regards studying and doing research as a duty...
