Pave your way to success in Rotterdam Rotterdam is a city with a contagious international vibe and the heart of Dutch economics. Here, you are taught by the best and study with students from all around the world. Students, who enjoy being challenged intellectually, socially and personally. One look at the Rotterdam skyline is all it takes to know that Erasmus School of Economics is where international careers start. Careers Partly depending on your specialisation subjects, you can have a successful career in fields like: banking accountancy tax consultancy research trade and business But you also find plenty of Rotterdam economists in more generalist positions at academic levels, for example: stock exchange analysts entrepreneurs tax inspectors HR managers sales and marketing managers politicians scientific journalists Curriculum Year one: laying the groundwork The International Bachelor, Economics and Business Economics programme, concentrates on worldwide issues related to economics and business. Your first year is divided into five blocks of eight weeks. Each block consists of three courses: one economics course, one course in business economics and one or more support course(s) or skills training will be offered. Subjects range from marketing to mathematics and accounting to organisation and strategy. In separate sessions, led by a student mentor, you will train your skills in studying, presentation, writing and debating Years two and three: adding breadth and depth to knowledge, skills and experience Your second year, is again structured around three disciplines. You will deepen your knowledge of the subjects introduced in the first year. You will also be introduced to several new subjects like international economics, finance and economics of ageing.

You will pick your major and have the chance to add more breadth to your studies by having electives and choosing a minor. Now is also the time to enrich your experience and undertake an internship or take part in an exchange programme at one of our many partner universities abroad. Economics and Business Economics Amin Noori Economics has always been a passion of mine, and after my second gap year from high school, I was ready for a new and exciting journey. IBEB has allowed me to really look at everyday occurrences in a more rational sense. Frequent reminders of how essential macro and micro-economics are, can be found in all parts of day-to-day life. This is what really interests me and what attracted me to this subject. The past year, I wanted to get more engaged with the international community at the Erasmus University. Therefore, after applying, I attained the position of Vice-President at ESN. It has been a very fulfilling year, organizing events and creating a welcoming environment for international students during their stay in the Netherlands. My time so far at Erasmus School of Economics has been amazing. I’ve made lifelong friends and tried things I never thought I would. The city of Rotterdam has truly become my home away from home. Its modern architecture and great international vibe truly allow for it to live up to its nickname, “Manhattan on the Maas’’ Lastly, I want to point out that being part of Erasmus School of Economics opens doors for many opportunities. It is up to you to go and grab them! Hrisyana Doytchinova When deciding on where to continue my studies, I was advised by both my Economics teacher as well as a friend to choose for this programme. I wanted to do something a bit broader as the field of Economics is quite broad in itself. But I was also looking for a bachelor programme where the courses complete each other. IBEB was exactly that! It incorporates Economics and Business Economics courses very well and they also complete each in a harmonic manner. Moreover, the study is divided into blocks, so you can focus really well on your subjects each block. This doesn’t mean that it’s easy though; IBEB requires you to plan your studies well, because it’s quite intensive. But I think that this skill comes in handy when continuing your studies and in your future career. Besides the study itself, I also really like Rotterdam; it’s multicultural, has beautiful spots like the Kralingse Plas and offers many career opportunities. And when you decide to study here,take my advice: besides obviously focussing on your studies you should definitely buy a bike! I can’t live without it anymore and it gets me everywhere from the Hague to Delft and back to Rotterdam! [-]

Best Bachelors in Business Studies in Netherlands 2017. This unique 3-year Philosophy, Politics and Economics Bachelor’s degree programme will prepare you for future leadership positions in business, politics, academia, and beyond. Complex social problems require generalists, that is, researchers, policy makers and professionals who are able to examine an issue from several angles, who can combine different perspectives in a constructive way, and who are aware of the broader social and historical context of problems. PPE provides you with the necessary tools and knowledge to be a leader in the 21st century. PPE at VU Amsterdam is the first program of its kind in continental Europe, combining a focused curriculum with exchange opportunities with international partner institutions and exciting and unique extracurricular initiatives involving representatives from the world of business, policy or politics. It is a multidisciplinary study program that combines the strengths of its three fields and places a special emphasis on incorporating the different perspectives of its constituent disciplines. The program provides rigorous theoretical training and broad, hands-on experience that will enable you to take an active role in shaping the world’s future. Future Leaders Looking Further The PPE program originated at Oxford University in the 1900s. Since then, many PPE programs have been developed at leading universities in the US, the UK and beyond. VU Amsterdam is the first university in mainland Europe to offer a comprehensive PPE program of this size at Bachelor’s level. You will benefit from our personal atmosphere and interaction with our dedicated and innovative teachers, many of whom have previous experience lecturing in multidisciplinary PPE programs throughout the world. We offer a challenging program with easy access to university facilities, while remaining close to the vibrant heart of Amsterdam. Your Future Prospects A degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics can open many doors for you. Whether you choose to continue your studies or move directly into a career in the world of business or politics, or do something entirely different, PPE will equip you as a leader with the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills needed to address the emerging issues of the 21st century. Many students begin their careers in administration or politics, and PPE will equip you for a career as a lobbyist, politician, or consultant. It also prepares students for exciting positions in ‘third sector’ organisations such as NGOs, national charities, and think tanks. Likewise, if you are interested in a career in business, a Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree will give you an educational background that will make you attractive to employers in management consulting, banking and other financial institutions, as well as management positions in a range of commercial enterprises. If you are considering further education, a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics will qualify you to enroll in a number of Master’s programs. If you choose the Philosophy or Political Science tracks, you will be eligible for all specializations in the (English language) MA program in Philosophy and the MSc program in Political Science, respectively. If you choose the Economics track, you will be qualified for the MSc in Economics (although this depends partly on the electives that you choose during your Bachelor’s degree). Year One: Foundations The Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) program is a three-year degree. The academic year at VU Amsterdam is divided into two semesters. The first year of the PPE program begins with an introduction to PPE, which covers the themes, methods, and primary theories. In the remaining two periods of the first semester, you will take introductory courses in each of the program’s foundation disciplines (philosophy, political science and economics), as well as a course on PPE methodology. The second semester includes additional foundation courses and a second methodological course in statistics. In the last part of the first year, will take your first interdisciplinary PPE in Practice course, which brings together the theory and methods you have acquired so far. Year Two: Theory At the beginning of the second year you will choose two of the three PPE disciplines to specialize in (if you wish to complete an additional 24 ECs, you can take all three tracks). You will take two courses in each of your chosen tracks, as well as four electives in those areas and two integrative PPE in Practice courses. Year Three: Practice In the third year of the PPE program, the emphasis will shift to preparing you for your future academic studies and careers beyond academia. During the fifth semester of your studies, you may choose either to pursue your studies at one of our partner institutions, or to complete an internship. During the final semester you will complete two large-scale projects: the PPE thesis and the final PPE in Practice course. You will work in groups to produce professional quality policy briefs. These briefs will be honed using input from your peers in the program’s ‘Policy Lab’. Also during this semester, you will incorporate the experience that you have gained through your studies abroad and your internship with the skills acquired throughout the program in order to produce professional quality research and policy projects. Admission Requirements In order to be admissible, you must have a Dutch pre-university school diploma (VWO) or an equivalent qualification with a sufficiently high grade point average (GPA). You need to have a diploma including a certain level of proficiency in mathematics (see info below on our maths requirement), and you also need proof of proficiency in English. Whether or not you will actually be offered a place in our programme will also depend on your: - motivation and suitability to study an intensive programme like our PPE programme; - commitment to contribute to the J.S. Mill College’s international student and campus life This will be determined based on your CV and your answer to our assessment questions, and possibly an additional interview (over Skype in case of international applicants).
