Big Data, Big Opportunities!

The MARUG Intelligence Event presents you with a nice opportunity to get more information on how marketing intelligence works in practice. This (English speaking) event is directed towards MSc Marketing Intelligence students. It is a great opportunity to meet interesting companies, who will give short presentations about who they are, what they are doing and how they work with big data. Next to these presentations, there will be workshops hosted by the participating companies. Each student takes part in one challenging workshop in which one will be working with interesting data. After the workshops, there is a social and also a recruitment diner with the participation companies, for which you can be invited during the day and on the basis of your CV. 

The Intelligence Event is organized by the Master Marketing Team.

Intelligence Event 2018

This year’s MARUG Intelligence Event will take place on the 17th of May and will be more exciting than ever. The companies that will be present at this event will be e-commerce giant Wehkamp, global financial institution ING and marketing analytics specialist Cmotions, which are rocking data science on a daily basis.

After an interesting business presentation by the companies, you will be working on a challenging case with real-life big data they brought. The best teams of both rounds will compete with each other on a final case, provided by ING. The winning team? They will go home with a fantastic price of no less than €500: a student’s dream come true. Didn’t make it to the final case? No loss: the other teams will participate in a fascinating workshop. Of course, we will end the event with a social, where you might be having a drink with your future employer. As a cherry on top: ING will host a recruitment dinner, for which you can be invited based on your CV. Long story short: you don’t want to miss this.

The event will take place from 12.00 – 18.30 at the Schimmelpenninck Huys. The price of this event is €5 for MARUG members and €7,50 for non-MARUG members. If you still want to sign up, send an email to More information about the companies:
