Hi, my name is Mette Stapel and I am the treasurer of the XXIVth board of the Financial Study association Rotterdam. Three years ago I moved to Rotterdam to study International Business Administration at Erasmus University. Since I barely knew any people when I first moved here, I joined the student association Laurentius and formed a lot of friendships with people I am still very close with. During my Bachelor’s, courses like Corporate Finance really sparked my interest, so I decided to do an internship at Beiersdorf as a Finance intern. At the end of this internship, I had learned a lot about financial reporting and forecasting and decided that I was not yet ready to start my Master’s degree. Therefore, I decided to join the FSR’s board as treasurer, to gain more experience and have an extra year of amazing opportunities!
As treasurer, I need to be up to date of the FSR’s financial position and keep my fellow board members informed. It is my responsibility to recognize financial trends and act accordingly, so in case of a downfall, I have to be even more efficient in spending the FSR’s resources, or seize an opportunity if extra money is available. During the year, I work closely with our External Relations and Vice-President to analyze available data and find opportunities for the FSR to grow and improve financially. I am also responsible for the budget of each event, which I think is great because it allows me to be involved with all the events that the FSR organizes throughout the year. I also organize some events, like the Asset Management Tour, Conferences and Masterclasses.
If you have any questions or would like to have a chat about what it’s like to be treasurer, don’t hesitate to contact me!
