Board of Recommendation
As a study association we are, of course, in touch with a lot of professionals and interesting personalities. Due to this ever growing network we have established the Board of Recommendation which consists of supporters of the association who we have gotten in touch with over the years. Being part of the Board of Recommendation implies the support of the association in terms of connections and network as well as the recommendation of the association towards external parties. With the support of the Board of Recommendation, ECU’92 has the possibility to organize high-level events with a great portfolio of speakers, companies and professionals. Our main goal is to create value for students at the Utrecht University School of Economics, the Board of Recommendation helps us to achieve this goal!

Dean of USE
Erik Stam is the head of the department of Utrecht School of Economics.
We continue the Economics legacy at Utrecht with a U.S.E. that contributes to an economy where people flourish, by taking a broad view on welfare and its causes. We aspire to be an internationally renowned school of economics, with scientifically rigorous and societally relevant research and education. We enrich economics with other disciplines to better solve problems and identify opportunities, from a business and government point of view: the real-world perspective. Well-being, cooperation, innovation and curiosity are our core values.Erik Stam

History of ECU’92
In the academic year of 1991/1992, the faculties of social sciences and environmental sciences set up an Economics project in Utrecht. To connect students from different faculties with an interest in economics, an association was started. Ellis Elting, Marcel van Haasteren and Pepijn Nicolas founded Economie Combinatie Utrecht 1992 on the 24th of March in the Bondsraadzaal of the National Labour Union Museum in Amsterdam. Over the years, ECU’92 became one of the largest associations in Utrecht. Furthermore, it became an active, pleasant and vivid study association for all economics students of Utrecht University.
Utrecht University started an independent Economics bachelor program in the year 2000. The establishment of the Utrecht University School of Economics (U.S.E.) led to a large increase in the number of ECU’92 members. What started as a group of friends with a common interest, evolved to a professional organization playing an important role in the life and career of many students. With the introduction of the English taught bachelor program, ECU’92 became an internationally oriented association. The bilingualism within the association is one of the features which makes ECU’92 special among all study associations in the Netherlands. Another factor which strongly changed the association, was the restructuring and expansion of Master programs at U.S.E.. Due to this change, ECU’92 is shifting its focus more towards the master students. Currently ECU’92 has around 1200 members of which about 110 members are active in committees or communities.
