About us

Who are we?

Nexus is the study association for the bachelor Computer Science and Economics, and the master ICT in Business and the Public Sector. Both of these studies are part of Leiden University, cooperating with the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. These studies combine economic knowledge with IT, making it a unique domain to study.

As Nexus, we organize fun and helpful activities to get to know one another and learn about the possibilities for your future. Our main vision is to support, connect and help students orientate within their fields.

The Computer Science and Economics bachelor study exists since the year 2009. Since then, the study association De Leidsche Flesch, which included the studies Mathematics, Astronomy, and Computer Science, represented this track. In 2018, students felt the need to be represented by an own study association. This birthed the idea for Nexus.

After a very successful launch activity, Nexus started to become an established association for Computer Science and Economics students. Over the years Nexus has organized many events such as social drinks and inhouse days, and connected many students with their peers and companies.
