The National Marketing Battle is the largest Dutch recruiting event for academic students in the field of Marketing. The event is focused on students from various Dutch universities who are in the final phase of their studies and who are interested in marketing. During this event, you will get to know several well-known firms by the means of several activities such as inhouse days, challenging cases, interesting workshops, speed dates, recruitment lunches and diners and network socials.
After a CV selection, 100 students will participate in an inhouseday at one of the partner companies. The inhouse days take place in advance of the event and they can be seen as preliminary rounds. During both the preliminaries and the finals students ‘battle’ in teams that consist of students from different universities. During the different rounds, the teams work on marketing cases, after which they will present their findings to a jury. At the end of the final round, the winning team can call themselves the 'biggest marketing talents of the Netherlands'. Next to the professional part there is, of course, plenty of time for social activities and an awesome end party.
