Commissioner of Academic Affairs
The Commissioner of Internal Affairs is responsible for AEclipse's Academic events. There is quite some flexibility regarding the king of events you can host and this allows room for a lot of creativity. In general, this includes academic events such as guest lectures, panel discussions and conferences. In recent years we have worked on expanding our flagship events such as the National Economic Olympiad (this year was our biggest one yet, with over 100 students participating). We have also actively worked on strengthening our ties with other associations by providing a debate workshop program for bachelors students at ESE along with the Erasmus debating society (EDS). The possibilities are endless. In addition you also have the opportunity to pick and lead your own committee for academic affairs thereby enhancing your leadership skills. If you have exciting ideas, want to make a change and provide something meaningful to your fellow students, we encourage you to apply.
Current Commissioner of Internal Activities: Sruthi
Commissioner of Development Economics
The Commissioner of Development Economics coordinates AEclipe's flagship event, the International Research Project. Within the International Research Project, a team of highly motivated and talented master students conducts research into a relevant topic for a developing economy, commissioned by a partner such as a local NGO. The project usually culminates with a trip to the country the research is about. Hence, the Commissioner of Development Economics coordinates the International Research Project Committee and the team of student consultants and is tasked with making sure the desk research and the trip run smoothly.
Current Commissioner of Development Economics: Gilles
Commissioner of Social Affairs

Its mission relies on creating a community among our students by organizing fun and unique activities, such as social gatherings, outdoor sports sessions, bonding events, the annual city trip abroad, the end-year party, ‘AD Hoc events,’ and more!
Taking part in this challenge is an incredible opportunity to develop leadership and soft skills, get in touch with and learn from people with different backgrounds, and increase networking.
