Acquisition Committee

The Acquisition Committee is a committee with the sole function of extracting more financial gains for ACE by external parties. This means that they are working closely together with the External Relations Manager or the Board of ACE. Together, they search for new sponsors who are willing to sponsor ACE, they look for internship positions and maintain warm contacts with the partners. 

Arts & Culture Committee

The Arts & Culture Committee organizes events for people with an interest in arts and culture. Various fields are covered such as arts, music, film but also career-related aspects. The events will bring people with a shared cultural affinity together, while enjoying fun and insightful activities. 

Career Committee

International Faculty Association ACE is there to help develop and equip you with the required professional skills of this 21st century global world. Experience matters a lot in order to complement your studies and compete with other students and graduates. The Career Committee will help you orientate yourself and get you in touch with companies to see if your interests are really something you want to pursue in the future. In February, International Faculty Association ACE will organise the biggest humanities career event on campus, namely the ACE Career Days. During this three-day event on campus, multiple companies will give presentations, workshops, lunches and other activities. You will have the opportunity to network, explore your interests and get a professional picture taken.

Long Trip Committee

Each year the Long Trip Committee organises a trip of around ten days to a special destination. The locations are different and mostly not that well known. For example, the last few years we went to Georgia, Malta & Sicily, Estonia & Finland, Ukraine and Israel. The long trip usually takes place in July after the last exams, so it is a perfect way to start your summer vacation. The trip will include social activities and study-related activities for all participating studies. The Long Trip is a great experience that you do not want to miss out on!

Short Trip Committee

The Short Trip Committee organizes a trip of three to four days abroad, typically a European destination. The aim of this evnet is to bring students from the faculty together for a fun, but also educational trip. The Short Trip usually includes historical, arts and culture, or communication related activities in combination with social aspects.

The committee comes up with themes, activities, games and decorations for these drinks, and they are in charge of the organizational tasks.
