Program description

Study econometrics & operations research in the Netherlands

The international bachelor econometrics and operations research program focuses on the application of mathematical and statistical techniques to answer economic questions that for instance involve risk assessment.

Thanks to the small scale teaching set up of the program, personal attention and intensive guidance are guaranteed. When completing practical tasks, for example, you will work in groups of four students.

Your academic year is divided into five eight-week blocks, in which you attend two or three courses. The study load is measured in credits of 28 study hours each. Each academic year is made up of 60 credits.

Applicants must show proficiency in the English language as all communication within the program is in English.

Program content

our first-year courses contain topics in mathematics, statistics, and economics. You will also receive training in computer programming to learn how to build models and implement mathematical techniques. Your first experience with operational research will consist of analysing and solving optimisation problems by applying these mathematical models.

We work with tutorial groups of about thirty students, which allows for individual attention and intensive guidance. During many of the practical assignments, you will work in groups of around four students.

During your second year you will focus on more advanced courses in different areas like mathematics, statistics, econometrics and business economics. You will divide your time equally between theory and practice, in small groups during lectures and assignments.

The third year offers many choices. First you get to take a minor (elective courses within or outside the field of Economics, such as Law or Psychology), study abroad at a partner university, or take an internship. In the second half of the year, you will choose a specialisation in one of the following four majors:

  • Econometrics
  • Quantitative Logistics
  • Quantitative Finance
  • Business Analytics and Quantitative Marketing

Tuition fees

Bachelor programmes

  • EU: EUR 2.060
  • Non-EU: 9.000

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships. Below you can find the few scholarships that might be applicable to you.

Erasmus Education Fund

Every academic year, the Erasmus Education Fund (EEF) supports several students with a scholarship of 3000 euro's per year. The EEF is only for excellent students who need provable financial support. Students may apply by following the application procedure for the EEF.

Erasmus School of Economics Student Waiver for excellent students from non-EEA countries

The Erasmus School of Economics has created a separate fund to support excellent students. The maximum award of the waiver consists of a tuition fee waiver for the year 2016-2017. Resulting in a tuition fee equal to the statutory fee. Current or prospective students who are awarded this waiver will therefore not themselves directly receive a sum of money.

Holland Scholarship Erasmus University

The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. The scholarship is meant for international students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) who want to do their bachelor’s or master’s in Holland. The scholarship amounts to €5,000.
