Every year, the University of Amsterdam is hosting the Econometric Game, one of the most prestigious projects organized by the study association for Actuarial Science, Econometrics & Operational Research (VSAE) of the University of Amsterdam. The participating universities are expected to send delegations of four students majoring in econometrics or relevant studies with a maximum of two PhD students. The teams will be given a case study, which they will have to resolve in two days. After these two days the ten teams with the best solutions will continue to day three. On the third day the finalists have to solve a second case while the other teams can go sightseeing in Amsterdam. After the teams have explored the city, all the participants will listen to each others presentations about their findings. The solutions will be reviewed by a jury of qualified and independent professors and they will announce the winner of the Game.
The Econometric Game 2017 will take place on the 5th, 6th and 7th of April 2017 in Amsterdam.
