They also thrive in an international environment and can’t get enough of dealing with complex issues. Curriculum Year one: a diverse kick-off in every way The International Bachelor Econometrics and Operations Research programme focuses on the application of mathematical and statistical techniques to answer economic questions. Each academic year is divided into five eight-week blocks with two or three courses per block. Your first year courses include Mathematics, Statistics, Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. You will also receive training in computer programming to learn to build and implement mathematical models. Your first experience with operational research will consist of analysing and solving optimization problems by applying these mathematical models.

You will complete your programme with a bachelor thesis. Testimonials Cynthia Yang I remember when we just started learning mathematics in high school. I was one of many who questioned the teacher about the purpose of those abstract figures and symbols. Years later, I became aware of the numerous ways of applying math to economics. After visiting several universities I decided to study Econometrics at Erasmus School of Economics (ESE), and I am really glad I did! Econometrics is a quite challenging, yet rewarding programme. If you find yourself enjoying mathematics and being interested in economics, this might be the perfect study for you! Furthermore, ESE offers an international program with a thus multicultural classroom. You will meet peers from all over the world and this creates the possibility to get to know different cultures while studying together. Besides studying, you can engage in many different activities. As Rotterdam is a vibrant city, it offers various ways to create an amazing student life. Besides FAECTOR, the study association for Econometrics students in Rotterdam, there are tons of student associations you can join, ranging from sports to stocks. You will meet people from different environments, perhaps with common interests, and before you know it you will feel at home! Krishna Vyas I have been very passionate about mathematics for as long as I remember. It was at the end of my time at high school that I realized that I mostly enjoyed its application in fields such as physics and econometrics. After careful consideration, I chose to study Econometrics and Operations Research due to the diverse nature of the study program, which allows students to pursue careers in countless disciplines involving mathematics. I have no regrets whatsoever. Throughout my studies, I realized that my greatest interest lays within statistics and probability theory, which reveal surprisingly counter-intuitive results such as the solution of the famous Monty Hall problem. During the first year, I was mostly focused on getting used to university life. I soon noticed, however, that Erasmus University provided numerous ways to develop and challenge myself besides regular studies. It was in my second year that I decided to make use of these opportunities by becoming a Teaching Assistant and joining the Education Committee. I also opted to pursue the Erasmus Honours Programme in order to experience various other disciplines. I would recommend every student to develop themselves besides their study programme by making full use of all opportunities Erasmus School of Economics offers. Your time at university is not merely about studying, it is about challenging yourself in ways you have never done before. Remember: a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. [-]

Bachelors in Economics. Bachelor of Economics Economics is the study of how societies deal with the economic problem - providing for the economic well being of their citizens. Each society has to decide what goods and services to produce (and how many of each), which methods to use to produce those goods and services, and to whom to distribute these goods and services once they are produced. The approach of economics is to emphasize the role played by rational, self-interested economic agents. Studying economics provides a solid preparation for a wide variety of careers in the private and public sectors. Recent economics graduates have secured employment in a variety of government agencies as Research Officers/Analysts, in banking and finance as Investment Services Officers or Financial Analysts, as well as becoming successful law students.

Economics asks interesting and important questions Economics studies how consumers, workers and businesses behave, with the goal of providing helpful analysis and advice to private firms, governments and international institutions like the IMF and WTO. Economists believe that individuals and business organizations usually act with an eye to their own self-interest. They use this assumption to predict future market trends, to analyze the relative merits of different possible market structures (e.g. small vs. big business, capitalism vs. socialism), and to advise governments and international bodies about the likely effects of their economic policies (e.g. taxes, unemployment insurance, free trade) upon individuals, industries and whole economies. There are lots of employment possibilities for trained economists Many jobs are available for economists in the public sector, especially in the areas of statistical analysis (Statistics Canada is always looking for economists), monetary policy (the Bank of Canada), public finance (advising municipal, provincial and federal governments on taxing and spending), economic development (advising towns and provinces on the best ways to attract business investment or plan for future expansion), and policy analysis (the very best students have a good shot at prestigious and rewarding jobs with institutions like the IMF, the World Bank and the United Nations). In the private sector, there are plenty more possibilities. Students with a training in economics can also find work as foreign-exchange traders, stockbrokers, financial consultants, auditors, tax analysts, investment advisors, research officers, bank managers, market analysts, labour-relations managers, journalists, and so on. And economics degrees open the door to professional programs in Business Administration, Law, Public Administration and Accountancy. High ranking: One of Canada’s top 10 comprehensive universities.
