According to research, the number one skill for a successful career is public speaking. In the Academy Committee, you will get the unique opportunity to prepare and present the academy to members of B&R Beurs. You will learn the secret of public speaking, increase your investment knowledge and get the guidance of fellow Academy Committee members.

To apply for the Academy committee, you do not need previous experience. However, we do recommend that you have some basic financial knowledge that we can build upon for you to present the Academies. 


During your time at the Academy Committee, you will become part of two of the six tracks from our B&R Beurs Academies. Over the year, you should spend at least 2h to 4h increasing your knowledge in these areas by e.g. reading books, following online courses or having conversations with more experienced track leaders. 

Every track will give two to three presentations per year to B&R Beurs members that are interested in Finance & Investing. Preparing and presenting the Academies takes about 9 hours. This time is spread over two weeks. The week before the Academy you will spend around 4 hours researching content and preparing the slides. The week of the Academy you will put the final touches on your presentation (2h) and then give the Academy itself (2h). Finally, you will revise the track article, which takes about 1 hour. 

At the end of the year, B&R Beurs members can also take the Investor Exam. You will help prepare this exam by writing questions related to the content taught in the Academies. These questions are evaluated by our partner CAIA, which is worldwide a well-known educator of Alternative Investments.
