Program description

BSc in Economics and Business Economics

Are you interested in financial management, exchange rates and the world economy? If so, then Economics and Business Economics might be the right program for you. You will learn to analyse the financial choices and decisions that have to be made constantly by businesses, from family businesses to multinationals. You will examine the risks and national and international rules that organisations have to work within as well as how to best deal with uncertainties like fluctuating interest rates and competition. This program suits people who like to analyse numbers and have a broad interest in the financial system and how this influences organisations.

What is this program about?

Economics and Business Economics in Nijmegen is characterized by paying attention to other study fields besides economics as well. We call this Economics+. It means that in Nijmegen you do not only delve into numbers and money, but also into social issues such as income inequality, causes of a crisis, the euro and other currencies, international developments and global capital markets, because in economics, culture, psychology, sociology, and ethics also play a role. Therefore, bits and pieces of psychology, sociology, business administration and law are included in the studies of economics. After all, the way in which resources are used or the way in which markets operate is the effect of human decision-making.

From this perspective, companies need employees who can generate solutions. This is why you receive a thorough scientific education in Nijmegen. You will be trained to become a business economist with critical and analytical skills who can think of solid solutions to financial problems. You will regularly receive examples of practical situations during lectures and presented with the task: what could be improved?
