M&S alumni career event
The Methodology and Statistics Unit of Leiden University (M&S, formerly M&T) organises its sixth M&S alumni event. With this event, we aim to bring current and former students in contact with each other, to provide you with insight into the career perspective of M&S alumni, and to help you in your quest for an internship and future job possibilities.
Several alumni will share their current and previous professional activities. And in short sessions all present alumni will be introduced to the current students and the students will be given the opportunity to ask questions. More questions can be asked afterwards during the informal drink in the café on the ground floor of the Pieter de la Court Building.
