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! [-]

Bachelors in Business Studies in Rotterdam in Netherlands. Business Analytics: A unique combination of disciplines Business Analytics is the science that deals with improving business processes through the extensive use of data and methods at the intersection of mathematics and computer science. The amount of data at businesses is exploding, whereas business processes and company strategies are becoming more complex. This leads to an enormous demand for data driven and mathematically well founded solutions. Business Analytics is a multidisciplinary program where you learn to understand processes and transform big data into actual decisions. The program offers a unique combination of the scientific disciplines of mathematics, computer science and business administration. In addition to your academic development, you will also evolve practical skills. Your professional career starts here, in the vibrant city of Amsterdam. Business Analytics at VU Amsterdam is a unique program by bringing together a combination of disciplines to prepare you for business success. You will learn how to collect and manipulate large data sets, how to analyse these data using statistics and data mining techniques, and how to use your findings to predict the future and make optimal decisions. You will work on a variety of business problems that modern businesses face every day. An example is the prediction of workload, cargo and the number of passengers travelling via Schiphol or specific airlines. Another example is product pricing for big fast food chains, or segmentation and profiling of customers. You may also work on detecting fraud based on a large dataset of financial transactions, or finding ways to mitigate financial risks for banks or insurance companies. It's all about turning (big) data into smart decisions. Future prospects As a graduate in Business Analytics you will enjoy a very strong position on the employment market: demand for BA graduates is high. Ninety percent of students enter full-time employment immediately on graduation (and some do so even before graduation). Many are offered a job by the company in which they completed their work placement. The private sector is constantly seeking ways to increase efficiency and effectiveness. A degree in Business Analytics opens up a variety of careers, including (ICT) consultancy (such as KPMG, Capgemini and Deloitte), as a datamining specialist / risk manager in the financial sector or a research career in the academic world. First & second year The first and second years involve a number of subjects covering business economics, mathematics and computer science. You will learn the basic principles of statistics and probability calculations, decision-making based on mathematical modelling, programming, using databases, and the principles of risk on the financial markets. Twice each year you will work on a project as part of a small team of fellow students. This helps to bridge the gap between theory and practice, allowing you to put your new knowledge to good use. Third Year In the third year, you can opt to take one of the ‘minor’ modules. This enables you to individualise the program according to your own interests and requirements. You might decide to take a minor in an entirely different discipline, thus adding breadth to your studies. Alternatively, you could study one of the many aspects of Business Analytics in greater depth. The Bachelor’s program culminates in a business case project. As part of a small team, you will attempt to solve a real-life business problem. You will visit the company concerned to gather the necessary information. Having arrived at your solution, you will give a presentation to management. The case study provides an excellent insight into the type of problems you will be asked to work on during your professional career. Admission requirements Whether or not you will actually be offered a place in our programme will also depend on your: - A diploma equivalent to a Dutch VWO diploma; - Proof of sufficient proficiency in Mathematics; - Proof of sufficient proficiency in English.

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).

International Business Management Studies in Luxury Goods

EuroPort Business School
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

The luxury industry has doubled in size over the past 10 years, reflecting an increasingly global presence. Europort Business School provides students a fully immersive, four year degree in every aspect of the industry. [+]

Bachelors in Business Studies in Rotterdam in Netherlands. The luxury industry has doubled in size over the past 10 years, reflecting an increasingly global presence. Traditionally a sector associated with Europe, luxury brands are expanding into the markets of the fast-developing BRICS economies. Asia in general, and China in particular, are now recognized as the biggest potential markets for luxury goods. Recent luxury brand sales clearly demonstrate that Asian consumers love luxury items. Luxury brands are now targeting the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) to increase their growth rates, which is a clear indicator of bright prospects for the luxury business. Managing companies operating in the Luxury Goods industry requires peculiar and specialized skills and knowledge that are usually not covered by traditional general management programs. Nowadays luxury brands require a new breed of managers, capable of managing both business, innovation and creative imperatives. The goal of the program is to ensure that participants develop a global vision of the luxury sector, some solid marketing and managerial abilities and the capacity to engage with innovation and creativity. Do you have an international mind-set, a specific interest for entering the retail luxury sectors (Cars, Fashion & Accessories, Watches & Jewellery) and an interest for acquiring managerial, entrepreneurial or marketing expertise in luxury business? Are you a sales oriented student willing to develop an international career in luxury distribution and/or do you want to set up a company in the luxury industry? Then the Bachelor program International Business Management Studies in Luxury Goods is the right choice for you! General The program IBMS Luxury Goods Management is a broad education in terms of content and teaching methods. The first 11 quarters (terms) shall be mainly at school. An important part of these quarters is the (real-life) project which highlights a specific aspect of (international) business every term. Of course, all classes are in English. The program offers great opportunities if you are ambitious and you want to excel. First year IBMS Luxury Goods Management During the first year you will be introduced to the international market from the perspective of an international marketeer, an international manager and an international communication manager, always with a special focus on your target group. General management and communication skills (taught in English) are an integral part of the program. Throughout your education, various modules and trainings will contribute to the (real-life) projects in which you will participate. During these projects, you will learn a lot about how to function in an international business environment. Second year IBMS Luxury Goods Management During the second year you will be working on your operational skills and learn how to identify business-related issues from a tactical point of view. You will see the international market through the eyes of a financial manager, an export manager and a retail manager of luxury goods. You will also participate in a project concerning the creation of a genuine company. You will finish this year with a ten-week orientation internship in the luxury goods branch. Third year IBMS Luxury Goods Management In the third year we will look at the luxury goods industry from the perspective of a brand manager, a management consultant and a product manager. As part of the program we will also visit France. As the home of cognac, fragrance, champagne, couture and foie gras, no one can deny that the French know a thing or two about luxury. And whilst the industry evolved from artisanal production, old-world tradition and a rich cultural heritage, the rise of modern companies LVMH and PPR has also cemented France as the business capital of the industry: home to one of the largest armies of luxury brand executives. Fourth year IBMS Luxury Goods Management In the last year you will perform an international internship in a Luxury Goods company. From our experience we know that working as a trainee is a perfect stepping stone to a career in the international luxury goods industry. You finish this last year with writing your thesis, which is the concluding highlight of your study. You are advising an international organization in the luxury goods industry on a problem they experience or an opportunity they want to explore. You work within a theoretical framework and carry out research in this organization in order to provide them with a good advice. Using the knowledge, skills and experience you have achieved during your study, you are expected to do research, analyse data and give specific recommendations to solve the business problem. [-]
