Wibrand de Reij - Chairman
Hi! My name is Wibrand, I am currently finishing my bachelors in Economtrics and the head of the organizing committee for this years edition of the Econometric Game. I have always been internationally orientated and after organizing a couple of other events this seemed like the next logical step. Together with a great committee we have been busy for quite a while now and I'm proud of what we have been able to accomplish. I want to wish you all the best of luck and hope you have a good time here in our beautiful city Amsterdam.
Glenn Taylor - Coordinator
Hi, I am Glenn Taylor, board member of the VSAE of the year 2014 and it is my second time organizing this event. What I believe that is so important about the Econometric Game is that it stimulates academic research and searches for a new possible solution to existing problems. This is what econometrics is all about and I am happy to welcome you all for the second time! Currently I am finishing the final year of my bachelor degree. Within the committee I was the coordinator from the VSAE board.
Steven Matthews - Acquisition and Website
I'm Steven Matthews, a second year bachelor Accountant student. In my free time I love builing things, solving puzzles and traveling the world. During my time as an Econometric student I came in contact with the study association VSAE. There I was involved with many committees organising events and last year I started with the Econometric Game committee. Within the committee I am responsible for the acquisition and the website. I hope you enjoy your time in Amsterdam and wish you good luck with the Econometric Game!
