Who can register for the MBDs?
Every SBE student can register for the Maastricht Business Days. It does not matter which year you study in.
When is the subscription deadline?
The deadline to subscribe for students is the 31st of January 2021, meaning you can subscribe until 11:59 pm. Please note that we cannot offer an extended deadline due to the large number of participants at the MBDs.
The registration deadline for companies is in the end of December. If you would like to participate at the Maastricht Business Days in the future you can send us a message and we will carefully file your details for the next events.
What is the participation fee?
The standard participation fee is € 20. However, SCOPE Members * receive the usual 50% discount on SCOPE events, resulting in a reduced participation fee or € 10. * Please note that in order to receive the 50% discount, you have to be a registered SCOPE member BEFORE subscribing to the MBDs 2020. To sign up as a SCOPE member, please visit: https://scope-maastricht.nl/about -us / membership / membership-options To verify your current SCOPE member status, please visit: https://sbesrv0010.unimaas.nl/associationreg/
How do I indicate my activity preferences?
You can select your preferences under "My account" - "My Event". When selecting several activities, please make sure that you rank the activities according to which activity you prefer the most in the “your preferences” box. Even if activities are not in the same time slot, you have to rank them according to your preferences. The algorithm tries to allocate you to the best solution possible for companies and students.
Can I subscribe to more than one activity in the same time slot?
Yes, you can. It even increases your chances to be selected by a company if you register for various activities simultaneously. Just do not forget to indicate your preferences by putting them in the right order. If you only select one preference and you don't get selected you might not get any activity at all.
What is the activity 'Networking'?
Networking is a new activity specially designed for online MBDs. During the 30 minutes of networking, each participant will be randomly placed on a call with a company or another student for a few minutes, just like speed dating. Through this process, you can get to know many different people/companies in a short time and set a start for the personal conversation at the CompanyFair. Here you have a chance, even if you do not get a student chat at your desired company, to have a private chat with them.
How are students selected for activities?
Company recruiters select a group of students who would like to invite their activities based on their CVs and rank them. Afterwards, an algorithm will allocate students to activities based on the optimal combination of student preferences and company selections. If you didn't get selected for a particular activity, that doesn't mean that the company is not interested in you. Remember that companies only offer very few spots for their activities, so it's difficult to select students. Therefore, we strongly advise meeting the company of your choice at the company fair. Furthermore, we advise you to fill in as many preferences as possible to increase the chances of being chosen. There will be no room for negotiation about your final schedule and the activities you get selected for.
I did not get selected for a workshop, stundent chat networking drinks, and dinner. What can I do?
We are sorry you didn't get chosen by the companies or your choice for the activities you subscribed for. However, you still have some opportunities to interact with companies at the MBDs! Apart from the company fair on both days, there are company presentations to which we can spontaneously give you access to during the event. If you decide not to join the MBDs you will get a refund. If you are joining the company fair and want to keep the chance of being able to attend presentations you will not get a refund.
What is the SCOPE Blacklisting Policy?
If you are selected for an interview / workshop / dinner / evening activity and do not show up you are blacklisted. If you are blacklisted you can't attend any SCOPE event for one year, starting from the date of the missed event up to and including the same event in the following year. The MBD 2021 allows up to two days after receiving your personalized schedule to cancel activities, afterwards, you do not receive a refund anymore and the blacklisting policy applies. Of course, there may be exceptions to this.
By when can I unsubscribe and receive a full refund?
You can unsubscribe by the subscription deadline, 13th of February 2021 and you will get a refund of your participation fee. After receiving your schedule you have 2 days to unsubscribe and get a refund. Send an Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I deregister for certain activities?
Yes, you can send us an Email (email@example.com) and cancel certain activities. If you keep other activities you will not get a refund.
If I subscribed but did not get any activities, can I still unsubscribe?
If you do not get any workshops/interviews you need to unsubscribe until the 13th of February to get a refund. Be aware that if you decide to attend presentations, the opening speech, lunch, and / or the company, you will not get a refund.
