About the FSR

Financial Study association Rotterdam

The Financial Study association Rotterdam (FSR) is the study association for students interested in (Quantitative) Finance, Accounting and Controlling at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, both at the Erasmus School of Economics and the Rotterdam School of Management. In total, the FSR has around 2000 members. The goal of the FSR is to create a link between theory – as it is taught at universities – and the versatile financial world in practice. This is accomplished by organizing various prestigious activities like the International Banking Cycle, the International Research Project and the Corporate Finance Competition. Other activities include workshops, company visits, study trips and company drinks.

For more information about the FSR, don’t hesitate to contact us! You can send an e-mail to info@fsr.nl or call 010-408 1830. You can always come by our office in H14-06 as well.

The FSR is established in 1999 through a merger between the Finance association Rotterdam ‘Pecunia’ and the Accounting & Controlling association ‘Pacioli’.

With over 2200 members, the Financial Study association Rotterdam is one of the biggest study associations in Rotterdam. Throughout the years the FSR has managed to build up a good reputation at the Erasmus University and in the rest of The Netherlands. The FSR has a close connection with the Finance and Accountancy department of the university. For instance, the FSR organizes guest lectures for certain seminars. Besides that, the prestigious International Research Project is linked to a seminar and lecturers are joining this study trip.

In the past the FSR has always been aware to persevere a strong and good relationship with their partners. Moreover high content and quality of FSR activities are crucial. The result is that our activities are a success every time again. Of course, our members are the most important asset of the Financial Study association Rotterdam. The strong relationship with our partners and capacity group is maintained due to the high quality pool of students, which are members of the FSR. This means that study trips, business courses and company dinners always share high content, which guarantees a successful FSR activity.

Events of the FSR are, because of a constant critical look, always guaranteed of high content and good quality. Due to this, participants of a FSR event get the opportunity to get in touch with the corporate world in a sincere manner. Hopefully, participation to one of our events prepares FSR members to make a deliberate decision with respect to the start of their professional career.
