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! [-]

The Department also offers a Certificate and minor in Economics. Why major in economics? 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.

Bachelors in Business and Economics. Economics - Primary Track Why are prices going up? Why are some products harder to get? These everyday questions, and others like them, are what economists try to answer. Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, governments, and societies make decisions concerning the use and distribution of resources, such as time, money, and skills. It is the central science underlying business and public policies. A B.S. in Economics emphasizes a broad understanding of how consumers' and producers' behavior is influenced by certain events—such as changes in interest rates, changes in prices, and new government regulations. The Department of Economics offers two program tracks. The primary track allows students to choose their own outside minor to complement their study of economics and advance their career goals. Political science, finance, business administration, and foreign languages are some of the common choices for an outside minor. The quantitative track is a specialized program designed to prepare students for graduate education in economics. An education in economics prepares students for employment in a wide variety of jobs—including banking, real estate, insurance, financial management, sales, and public administration—and serves as an excellent foundation from which to pursue law school or other advanced degree work.
