Strengths A high standard of teaching Teaching provision in Economics has been assessed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education and achieved the highest possible rating of ‘commendable’ in all aspects. Many of our lecturers have an international reputation in their specialisms and are at the forefront of research. These strengths are reflected in the modules we offer and underline our commitment to quality in teaching. Strong research improves teaching quality. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, 15% of our research was rated as world-leading and a further 45% as internationally excellent, placing us in the top four Economics units of assessment in Scotland and the top 25 in the UK. Flexible degree courses The Stirling degree is modular and therefore highly flexible. You are not committed to taking the course for which you applied. You do not need to commit yourself to a particular course before the end of your second year. In the third and fourth years there is a range of courses available that allow you to specialise in Economics or to combine the study of Economics with one or two other subjects. Useful skills The structure of our degrees helps to develop useful skills. Assessment is based on coursework as well as examinations. This helps to build up independent learning skills. Communication skills are developed in tutorials where students present arguments orally. Our quantitative modules develop skills in using computers and presenting statistically based arguments. Most Honours students write a dissertation in their final year on which they work independently with a staff supervisor. A good performance can enhance career prospects as many employers and postgraduate admission selectors are particularly looking for the ability to work independently on a project. Good information about your progress The Stirling system of basing grades partly on coursework marked during the semester and on awarding grades for each module taken at the end of each semester means that you are kept well-informed about your progress throughout your university career. A degree result that fairly reflects all your work at Honours level In determining the class of an Honours degree, examiners take into account the grades achieved in all the modules taken in the third and fourth years. There are no final examinations covering work in earlier semesters - many students only do a dissertation in their final semester and have no exams at all at the end of their fourth year. Thus your degree result depends on a range of work done over two years, rather than solely on your performance in examinations concentrated in a few days right at the end of your university career. The rules that the Examiners use to determine the class of degree are published, so you can work out semester by semester what class of degree you are likely to get, and make adjustments to your work effort to achieve the result you want.

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. The small scale teaching approach at Erasmus School of Economics, with tutorial groups smaller than 35 students, allows for the necessary individual attention and intensive guidance.

You will divide your time equally between theory and practise; in small groups for lectures and assignments. The third year offers you many choices. First you get to take a minor (elective courses within or outside the field of Economics, like Law or Psychology) or you can choose to study abroad at a partner university. In the second half of the year, you will choose to specialize in one of the following four majors and emerge as a focused graduate: Econometrics Quantitative Logistics Quantitative Finance Quantitative Marketing Your major involves two specialisation courses and a seminar. 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. [-]

associate professor “Once I knew I wanted to conti­nue my stu­dies in Budapest, I was looking for a uni­versity that could provide me with quality education. Upon my search, I’ve found the website of Metro­politan University (back then BKF), and I really liked their choice of programs and what their programs offer. I am currently enrolled for the program International Business Economics, and I am happy to say that this program fully met my expectations. The student life is great, for me the most memorable event has to be the Welcome Weekend, I had so much fun. I met most of my friends there and we still talk about those days from time to time. If I want to recall a memorable moment that happened to me at Metropolitan, I would tell you all the things that happened to me at the Welcome Weekend. But if I’m being completely honest, every day has its memorable moment. The opportunity to learning new concepts, getting to know people or creating a stronger bond with friends is one of those things that makes my day unique.” Dina Sara Kovacs
