TiU Alumni Association VAET

The Association for Alumni in Econometrics at Tilburg (VAET) is the association founded for and by alumni in the bachelor and master educational programs of Econometrics and Operations Research of the School of Economics and Management of Tilburg University. The association started formally in November 1986, but is already active since 1969. The association has almost 1000 members and is one of the largest alumni associations of Tilburg University.

The main goals of the VAET are as follows:

  • to keep and strengthen the link between alumni of Tilburg University in Econometrics and Operations Research, and between them and the members of the Department of Econometrics and Operations Research and the university;
  • to let the members and others who are interested be acquainted with the most actual knowledge and insights in the area of econometrics and operations research.

The VAET regularly organizes afternoons where alumni can meet each other in order to exchange old and new experiences. The VAET also tries to keep its members informed about the latest developments in Econometrics and Operations Research during these meetings, which have a scientific character. Except  for Econometrics and Operations Research alumni from Tilburg University, the association's members also include staff members and PhD students at the Departement of Econometrics and Operations Research. 

Membership of the VAET is free. Through the VAET it is possible to subscribe for Until, the alumni magazine of Tilburg University and Stichting Cobbenhagen, the alumni organization of the university.
