About FSR

The Financial Study association Rotterdam (FSR) is the study association for students interested in (Quantitative) Finance, Accounting and Controlling at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, both at the Erasmus School of Economics and the Rotterdam School of Management. In total, the FSR has more than 2500 members. The goal of the FSR is to create a link between theory - as it is taught at universities - and the versatile financial world in practice. This is accomplished by organising various prestigious activities like the International Banking Cycle, the International Research Project and the Corporate Finance Competition. Other activities include workshops, company visits, study trips and company drinks.

The FSR was established in 1999 through a merger between the Finance association Rotterdam 'Pecunia' and the Accounting & Controlling association 'Pacioli'.

With over 2500 members, the Financial Study association Rotterdam is one of the biggest study associations in Rotterdam. Throughout the years the FSR has managed to build up a good reputation at the Erasmus University and in the rest of The Netherlands. The FSR has a close connection with the Finance and Accountancy department of the university. For instance, the FSR organises guest lectures for certain seminars.

In the past the FSR has always been focussed on maintaining a strong and good relationship with our partners. Moreover high content and quality of FSR activities are crucial. The result is that our activities are a success every time again. Of course, our members are the most important asset of the Financial Study association Rotterdam. The strong relationship with our partners is maintained due to the high quality pool of students who are members of the FSR. This means that study trips, business courses and company dinners always share high content to guarantee a successful FSR activity.


Events of the FSR are, because of a constant critical look, always of high content and good quality. Due to this, participants of an FSR event get the opportunity to get in touch with the corporate world in a sincere manner. Hopefully, participation in one of our events helps FSR members to make a deliberate decision with respect to the start of their professional career.


The Financial Association Netherlands (FAN) is a national platform to improve the relationship between the different financial study associations and companies in The Netherlands. Five different study associations from Amsterdam (FSA), Groningen (RISK), Maastricht (Scope), Tilburg (Asset | Accounting & Finance) and Rotterdam (FSR) are connected within the FAN.

The main objective of this organisation is to close the gap between theory and the corporate world. Within the FAN, the opinion is shared that cooperation on a national level results in providing better information towards the student and creates extra opportunities for companies. Because of the existence of the FAN, companies get the possibility to target students at a national level.

The FAN aims to organise a national event and sends e-mails collectively. Furthermore, the different members of the FAN have their own portfolio of activities throughout the academic year as well, in order to satisfy the diverse interests and needs of the Dutch financial students. These events vary from in-house cycles, business courses, study trips, workshops and congresses. Due to this, members of these associations receive a lot of information and hopefully they are capable of making the right decision with respect to the start of their professional career.
