Chairman

As the Chairman of the Econometric Games committee, I am responsible for ensuring proper observation of the values and traditions of the World Championship of Econometrics which have been held for the past 21 years. I am delighted to host returning and new participants in Amsterdam again this year. Having recently completed my bachelors, I am eager to learn about the paths taken by our distinguished participants in their academic journeys and to witness their various experiences take shape in our case. I hopes that you will enjoy your stay with us, meet some amazing people and be challenged by the case we have prepared for you. Good Luck!

Hi! My name is Jack and I am currently finishing my bachelor Econometrics at the University of Amsterdam. This year, I will arrange the facilities; places to stay, location of the event, etc., I will also interfere with the acquisition. As last year’s event, unfortunately, did not take place, we are extra motivated to make this year better than ever. We hope everyone enjoys the Econometric Game 2021!

Hello! My name is Carlo Barendse. Currently I am enrolled in the econometrics bachelor at the University of Amsterdam. Besides spending hours at the University’s library, I wll arrange the acquisition and marketing for the upcoming edition of the Econometric Game. At the moment, I am working closely together with Kaj, with the aim to make this year’s edition even better than the previous editions.

Hi! My name is Ira and I am currently in my third year of the bachelor Econometrics. This year I am responsible for arranging an interesting case for the Econometric Game. With great pleasure the committee and I have come up with various possible themes for the case for 2022. For one of those themes, I am trying to find and assist a suitable casemaker who will help us make an interesting and challenging case for this year’s edition. Furthermore, it is my job to find a suitable and professional jury that will ultimately choose a justified winner. Hopefully we will see you in April and goodluck with the case this year!
