Study international economics in the Netherlands
Do you aim to work in an international economic and business environment? Are your standards as high as your ambitions? Prepare yourself to tackle a wide range of topical international economic issues in the international economics program.
This challenging, practice-oriented program consists of core courses, electives, seminars and a master thesis. During your master, you will explore and analyze the progressive integration of goods, labour and capital markets and the decline of national barriers.
You will also achieve a deep understanding of the economic forces underlying the increased interdependence of nations as you can choose electives covering topics like:
- empirical international trade
- the so–called new trade theories
- the instruments of trade policies
- international financial markets
Your degree has to be equivalent to the BSc in Economics and Business Economics offered by Erasmus School of Economics. Your Bachelor's degree in economics, accounting, finance or business (administration) needs to be equivalent in both level and content.

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
