Case (If you go to this case, you need to bring your laptop!) (Presentation and documents are Dutch, but het case is open for non-Dutch students)
DEMCON has developed a rheumatic hand scanner to which a disposable device is connected that patients can wear on their hand. This disposable measures different things, which are forwarded to the rheumatic scanner. The scanner analyzes the information to determine whether one patient may have rheumatism. At the moment, the disposable is produced by a supplier. In this (fictional) case you will find out whether DEMCON should start producing the disposable internally.
This case is only for Dutch students.
Case De wereld achter de cijfers
Bij je dagelijkse bezigheden kom je (onbewust) met allerlei bedrijven in aanraking. Houd jij van afwisseling en ben je geïnteresseerd in de wereld áchter de cijfers? Wil jij weten wat het werk van een accountant en IT auditor inhoudt? Ben jij benieuwd naar de ervaringen van een oud-student van de Universiteit Twente? Kom dan naar onze workshop!
We laten je in een interactieve sessie kennismaken met (ethische) dilemma’s in de accountancy, wat een IT auditor allemaal doet naast zijn werk voor de jaarrekening (veel!) en laten je zien hoe belangrijk het is om in ons vak over goede communicatieve vaardigheden te beschikken.
If you go to this case, you need to send your cv to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 15th of February 12:00 am.
