Why would you join the International Financial Program (IFP) to conduct research for your organization in Peru? Former partners of the IFP have been very positive regarding the results of the research. In brief, the unique selling points of the IFP are:
The research is conducted by 21 motivated, senior students with diverse (financial) academic backgrounds. These students are guided by two professors of the University of Groningen during the whole research period. These professors have extensive experience in conducting research, both at academic and corporate level. Hence, the IFP is able to offer high quality research.
The IFP selects students from the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen. Therefore, they have specific, academic knowledge about business and finance. By applying this knowledge, they are able to conduct high quality research in these areas. Since students with different academic backgrounds are involved in the project, the quality of the research is increased by the complementarity of students’ knowledge.
Tailor-made research at cost price
The IFP conducts tailor-made, professional research at cost price. The program is primarily focused on enabling students to gain practical research experience. Therefore, companies only pay for the costs that are made for training the students and conducting the field research phase. The IFP is by no means aimed at making a profit.
Since its start in 2006, the IFP has performed many successful researches in several emerging economies, among other in Latin-America, Asia and Africa, which resulted in satisfied participating companies.
The researches of the IFP are conducted by students who are not affiliated to any company by any means. Therefore, the researches are independent and objective and all findings will be treated confidentially.
The International Financial Program gives your company the opportunity to make valuable contacts with the participating students. We selected a group of knowledgeable, highly motivated students with diverse backgrounds. Next to the research that we offer, we can also offer in-house days. If desired, one of our external relations managers would be delighted to elaborate those possibilities. Do not hesitate to contact one of our external relations managers here if you are interested!
