The Business Orientation Days (BOD) is a two-day career event, organized primarily for students with interests in finance, economics, business administration or a quantitative field of study, such as econometrics. The BOD takes place in Amsterdam and is hosted by two study associations: the Financial Study association Amsterdam (FSA) and the Association of Students Actuarial Sciences and Econometrics (VSAE). More information on the organization can be found here.

The BOD aims to connect students with leading companies, in order to meet their potential future employer and/or to orientate themselves. Yearly, around 40 leading companies are present at the BOD and more than 700 students sign up for the event.
