Assessing the Bols genever investment opportunity

Financieele dagblad, December 10th, 2005 Spirits producer Bols will soon change ownership again AMSTERDAM - The French beverage company Rémy Cointreau wants to get rid of Bols. It is unclear whether the Dutch daughter will be sold completely or in parts. […]

Imagine you work at EY-Parthenon and read this article this morning. You would probably expect an email of one of the partners to tell you’re on the job: assist one of the potential buyers of Bols in their assessment of this investment opportunity. A large brewer has shown interest in Bols: can you think of advantages a spirits producer would have after a takeover by this brewer.

This is exactly what you will do during the workshop at the Erasmus Recruitment Days on January 31th. You will learn all about the work of a strategy consultant by solving this case: structure the problem, think about analyses you would like to perform and formulate a fact-based strategy. It will take business-sense and strong analytical skills to solve this problem, but hey: we know you can! / “Talent, dedication and enthusiasm are more important to us than the type of study that you completed.

Important keywords are: superior analytic skills, a strong curiosity, enterprising, driven, mature and a no-nonsense mentality. We will select candidates on analytic skills and interesting extra-curricular activities.”
