The Risk Conference is the largest annual event of Risk. This year’s event will take place on the 21st of February 2018. Yearly, the conference attracts about 300-350 financially oriented students, who are mostly in the final years of their studies. However, the Risk Conference is not only interesting for students, it is also an interesting platform for companies to present themselves. There are several company workshops, recruitment lunches and dinners that give students and companies a way to get to know one another.
The theme of the Risk Conference 2018 is: “New Financial Focus: What Are the Odds of Surviving?” Within this theme, several speakers are invited to educate us on the following subthemes: Cloud accounting, responsibility of firms, overheated M&A market, and banking without bankers. Apart from the plenary lectures, students get the chance to participate in workshops. Here, several prominent companies in the field of finance and accountancy will present a case in which the students can get a feel of the day-to-day work at that company. The day will end with a social, so everyone gets the opportunity to network and finish the day.
